New Excise Procedure
All excisable goods exported out of India are exempt from payment of Central Excise Duties, for which two different procedures have been approved
 
Rebate of Duty on Goods Export Procedure

Under the first procedure, known as 'Rebate of duty on Goods Export. The manufacturer has first to pay the excise duty on goods meant for export and then claim refund of the same after exportation of such goods to countries except Nepal and Bhutan. This is done under Rule 12 of Central Excise Rules. Under this rule, rebate of duty is granted for the finished stage as well as input stage. Rebate of duty in respect of the excisable materials used in the manufacture of the exported goods shall not be allowed if the exporter avails of the drawback allowed under the Customs and Central Excise Duties Drawback Rules, 1995 or Modvat. The following procedure should be followed while exporting under the rebate of duty. Removal of goods under claim of rebate from a factory or warehouse without examination by the Central Excise Officers. The exporters are allowed to remove the goods for export on their own without getting the goods examined by the Central Excise Officers. Form AR4 in such cases should be prepared in sixtuplicate, giving all particulars and declarations. The exporter shall deliver triplicate, and quadruplicate, quintuplicateand sixtuplicate copies of AR4 to the Superintendent of Central Excise having jurisdiction over the factory or the warehouse, within 24 hours of the removal of the consignment and would retain the original and duplicate copies for presenting along with the consignment to the Customs Officer at the point of export. The jurisdictional superintendent of Central Excise examines the information contained in AR4 and verifies the facts of payment of duty and other certificates/declarations made by the exporter. After he is satisfied that the information contained in the AR4 is true, he signs at appropriate places in the four copies of AR4 submitted to him and plus his stamp with his name and designation below his signature. He would then dispose of the triplicate, quadruplicate, quintuplicate and sixtuplicate copies of AR4 as under : -

Triplicate To there bate sanctioning authority viz. Maritime Commissioner of Central Excise or the assistant commissioner of Central Excise declared by the exporter on the AR4. This copy on the request of exporter may be sealed and handed over to the exporter / his authorized agent for presenting to the rebate sanctioning authority.
Quadruplicate To the Chief Accounts Officer in the Commissionerate Headquarters.
Quintuplicate Office copy to be retained by the Central Excise Officer.
Sixtuplicate To be given to the exporter.

Procedure for exports under Central Excise Seal Where the exporter desires the sealing of the goods by the Central Excise Officers so that the export goods may not be examined by the Customs Officers at the Port/Airport of shipment, he should present an AR4 application in sixtuplicate to the Superintendent of Central Excise having jurisdiction over the factory/warehouse at least 24 hours before the intended removal of the export goods from the factory/warehouse. The Superintendent of Central Excise may depute an Inspector of Central Excise or may himself go for sealing and examination of the export consignment. Where the AR4 indicates that the export is in discharge of an export obligation under a Quantity-based advance License or a Value-based Advance License issued under the Duty Exemption Scheme, in such cases the consignment is invariably examined and sealed by the Superintendent of Central Excise himself. The Central Excise Officer examining the consignment would draw samples wherever necessary in triplicate. He would hand over two sets of samples, duly sealed, to the exporter or his authorized agent, for delivering to the Customs Officers at the point of export. He would retain the third set for his records. The export consignment is carefully examined vis-à-vis the description of goods, their value and other particulars/declarations on the AR4. The Central Excise Officer verifies the facts of payment of duty and other certificates/declarations made by the exporter. After he is satisfied that the information contained in the AR4 is true he would allow the clearances and also sign all the six copies of the AR4 at appropriate places and put his stamp with his name and designation below his signature. The copies of AR4 are disposed of as under:

Original and Duplicate TTo the exporter for presenting to Customs Officer at the point of export along with the export consignment.
Triplicate To the rebate sanctioning authority i.e. Maritime Commissioner of Central Excise or the jurisdictional Assistant Commissioner of Central Excise, as declared by the exporter on the AR4. The Central Excise officer may handover this copy under the sealed cover on exporter's request.
Quadruplicate To the Chief Accounts Officer at his Commissionerate Headquarters.
Quintuplicate To be retained for records.
 
Export under Bond Procedure

Under the second procedure known as "Exports Under Bond" goods can be exported out of India except to Nepal or Bhutan without prior payment of duty subject to the execution of the Bond with security / security for a sum equivalent to the duty chargeable on the goods to be exported. This is done under Rule 13 of Central Excise Rules which deals with export of goods in Bond as well as utilisation of raw materials etc. without payment of duty for manufacture and export of excisable goods. The following procedure has been prescribed in this regard.
