Foreign Trade Policy provides benefits to Manufacturers who are either importing or sourcing domestically their Inputs/Raw Materials and Capital Goods, which are needed for export production. Exports could be direct, through third parties or deemed exports.
Manufacturers should specifically look for EPCG schemes when they import their machinery. In case raw materials are being imported for export production, they can be imported under Duty Exemption Scheme.
Even if there are no exports envisaged, the goods can always be imported under MEIS, SEIS, DFIA schemes, thus availing of some benefits.
A new plant can utilize Project Import Scheme.
