For this purpose, the exporter can surrender the quantity from own entitlements in systems other than FCFS or by obtaining the quantity by transfer. If the case is to be cleared after 20th September, when transfers are not permissible, and an exporter does not have own entitlements to surrender, an undertaking to surrender the requisite quantity by the 31st January from the succeeding year’s entitlement (own or transferred) shall be taken from such an exporter. Such an undertaking should be backed by BG/EMD to the extent of 50% of the FOB value of the quantity. Once the quantity is surrendered, the BG/EMD may be released. If the quantity is not surrendered as per the undertaking, the BG/EMD may be forfeited. In such cases, PPE allotments in any country-category to the exporter for the succeeding year may be allotted, only after the requisite quantity is so surrendered.
    b. If unallocated balance is available in the reclassified categories from the quantities released by the Quota Administering Authority in FCFS system, the Export Certificate / visas for the held up consignment will be issued after debiting such balance and the exporter will not be required to surrender any quantity.
    c. The stipulations of (a) and (b) above will also apply to cases where a change of buyer is required for a shipment that had been effected under the FCFS system or under the PPE system after obtaining extension beyond 30th September and to cases where a change of importing country is required.
    d. Where a shipment exported in a restrained category reclassified into another restrained category as above, the entitlement used for sending the shipment from the country may be returned to the exporter, subject to the following conditions :

    i. The exporter returns the Original Export Certificate / Visa to the Quota Administering Authority.
    ii. The Entitlement Certificate which had been debited at the time of export, remains valid for the concerned quantity when the add-back is requested.
    a. In the case of items exported as handloom garments exempted from restraints or as "India Items", which are reclassified by the importing countries as restrained items, Visas/Export Certificates will be issued by the Quota Administering Authority after obtaining the approval of the Ministry of Textiles.

    Thumbs up Ministry of Textiles - Notifications - Repeal of Cotton Ginning and Pressing Factories Act,1925.

    Ministry of Textiles

    Repeal of Cotton Ginning & Pressing Factories Act,1925

    The Cotton Ginning and Pressing factories Act, 1925 enacted on the 8th day of August, 1925 provided for periodical filing of returns, maintenance of registers, marking of bales and other rule making powers for the Central and State Governments for the purpose of regulating the ginning and pressing factories.

    2. There have been changes in the pattern of processing, marketing and consumption of cotton since the enactment of the act. In the market driven economy needing quality products modernisation of ginning and pressing factories is essential. Further, in the present liberalized industrial scenario the restrictions laid down in the Cotton Ginning and Pressing Factories Act, 1925 are not required any longer and the Cotton control Order, 1986 issued under the Essential Commodities Act, 1955 would cover provisions considered essential to regulate working of ginning and pressing factories in future so long as cotton remains as an essential commodity. Hence it was considered that the said Act be repealed.

    3. The repeal will also provide a thrust and incentive to the modernisation efforts in the cotton ginning and pressing sector to ensure quality processing of cotton and charging remunerative price for the service provided for.

    Ministry of Textiles

    GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
    MINISTRY OF INDUSTRY
    DEPARTMENT OF INDUSTRIAL POLICY AND PROMOTION
    PRESS NOTE NO. 17
    (1998 SERIES)


    SUBJECT: Export of cotton yarn by EOU/EPZ units.

    The Export Oriented Units/EPZ units in the cotton yarn sector are currently allowed to manufacture and export cotton yarn with domestic cotton use restrictions as stipulated in Press Notes No. 19 (1997 series) dated 26.12.97.

    2. There have been representations from the 100% EOUs producing cotton yarn seeking greater operational flexibility so that they are better equipped to deal with the adverse market conditions prevailing in the international market. At the same time, there is an urgent need for promoting downstream investments by cotton yarn EOUs in the interest of higher value added export of fabrics.

    3. With a view to encouraging investments towards setting up of integrated units and thus achieving value additions, as well as to address the current difficulties of the cotton yarn EOUs, Government have decided to allow the flexibility to the 100% EOUs to export cotton yarn without any count restriction/sourcing of domestic cotton conditions in a manner and to the extent as set out hereinunder:-

    (i) Those 100% EOUs that are manufacturing cotton yarn and are subject to count restrictions may be permitted to export cotton yarn without any count/domestic cotton use restriction upto 31st December, 1998 subject to the condition that such exports are within the overall quantitative ceiling on cotton yarn exports of counts 1-40 (which is 175 million Kgs for the calendar year 1998 as of date). For such exports, the EOUs will have to apply to the Cotton Textile Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL) for allocation of ceiling.

    (ii) The composite units manufacturing cotton yarn as well as fabrics both existing and new as may be provided in the Letter of Permission (LOP) under the 100% EOU sector, would be allowed the flexibility to export cotton yarn also, without any count restriction/sourcing of domestic cotton condition. This dispensation would be contingent upon the following conditions:-

    (a) Special eligibility would accrue only after the weaving capacity has been fully installed, certified as balanced unit of spinning and weaving capacity by Textile Commissioner, and its commercial production has started.
    (b) The export of yarn at any time would not be more than exports effected in the form of fabric in value terms and will be overall governed by the Letter of Undertaking (LUT) regarding export obligation

    4. All investors and entrepreneurs may please take note of the aforesaid revision in the Policy.
