Dear Members,

In this regard, Government has issued Circular No. 38/2017-Customs F.

For the sake of convenience, important points are highlighted  as follows:


  • DBK Rates for majority  of  items under CHEMEXCIL Purview i.e. Chapter 29, 32, 33, 34 & 38  remain at 1.5%. DBK Rates of Chapter 28 item rates reduced to 1.1%.
  • Definition of Drawback has been amended to provide for drawback of Customs and Central Excise duties excluding integrated tax and compensation cess leviable.  References to input services and Service Tax have been omitted.
  • The Composite rates of Drawback are being discontinued w.e.f. 1.10.2017. Hence, the composite rates and Notes and Conditions pertaining to CENVAT credit, rebate of Central Excise duty, etc. stand omitted. Thus, the declaration required to be given by an exporter for claiming composite rate of drawback w.e.f. 1.7.2017 as per Circular no. 32/2017-Customs dated 27.7.2017 is no longer required w.e.f. 1.10.2017;

  • Where in respect of export product, NIL rate or no rate of drawback is provided in AIR Schedule, an application for fixation of Brand Rate under Rule 7 of the Drawback Rules, 2017 shall not be admissible. In such situation, application for fixation of Brand Rate may be filed under Rule 6 of the Drawback Rules, 2017;
