DGFT office has recently announced that 31.12.2021 as the last date for submission of SEIS applications as per below criteria:

Scheme Financial Year Late Cut in %
SEIS 2018-19 5%
2019-20 NIL

Since the Ministries will keep watch on the outgo, you are advised to ensure filing your claim as soon as possible.


Recently on 09.09.2021 thru a press release and tweet, The Government announced that they have allocated the fund of Rs. 10,002 crores to SEIS scheme and arrears of it. As per the PN of Ministry of Commerce and Industry –

Service sector exporters, including those in the travel, tourism and hospitality segments will be able to claim SEIS benefits for FY 2019-2020, for which Rs 2,061 crore has been provisioned. The SEIS for FY 2019-20 with certain revisions in service categories and rates is being notified. This support would have a multiplier effect and spur employment generation.

On 16.06.2021, the Finance Ministry gave concurrence to the proposal of the Commerce Ministry for the continuation of Services Exports from India Scheme (SEIS) for 2019-20 with a financial allocation of Rs.2,061 crore, subject to the condition that the amount will be provided through expenditure budget following the procedure of providing a new minor head.

Since a considerable time has passed, we expect that the O/o DGFT will now any day announce the rates & eligible categories to avail SEIS benefit on foreign exchange earnings in FY 2019-20.

Seeing the current situation, we also anticipate strict scrutiny of the eligibility criterion as per the policy and CPC as well as documentation this time. To make the claim process hassle-free and smooth, we think pre-analysis of the documents will be a wise step.
