During the current year period April–September 2018, the exports of cotton textiles (Yarns, Fabrics, Made-up and Raw cotton) from India reported a growth of 26.81% reaching a level of USD 6.23 billion, stated Shri Ujwal Lahoti, Chairman of The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL) at the 64th Annual General Meeting of the Council held on 29th of November 2018.

Shri Lahoti further stated that during this period (January-December 2017), India exported cotton textile products worth USD 10.82 billion reporting a growth of 3.54% over the previous year. Cotton made-ups (USD 5.26 billion) dominated the Indian cotton textiles basket with a share of 48.61%, followed by cotton yarns (USD 3.45 billion) achieving a share of 31.88% and cotton fabrics (USD 2.11 billion) recording a share of 19.51%.

GST - 

Texprocil Chairman stated that there are some areas in GST, which need urgent attention of the policymakers. These are as follows:

  • Refund of IGST on exports should be delinked from monthly returns (GSTR-1 & GSTR-3B). 
  • IGST refund should be given to exporters availing deemed exports benefit on domestic purchase under Advance Authorization and 100% EOU.
  • Refund of Unutilized Input Tax Credit (Transitional Credits) should be allowed when goods are exported under LUT.
  • Merchant exporters availing of benefit of concessional GST rate on purchase of export goods should be allowed IGST refund on exports.
  • GST Commissionerates should strictly follow the guidelines issued by CBIC for a refund of Unutilized Input Tax Credit on exports under LUT/Bond.
  • Further, during July 1, 2017 to September 31, 2017 higher Drawback rates were allowed as a transitional measure subject to non-availment of ITC. However, many exporters erroneously availed of ITC and also higher rate of Drawback. As a result, they have not received IGST refund. Exporters subsequently, surrendered the difference between higher Drawback and lower Drawback. However, they are still waiting for IGST refund. The Chairman, TEXPROCIL urged the Govt to refund IGST to such exporters.
