The queries can be sent to DGFT with #mociseva and #FTPReview.

The exporters and importers are already posting their queries and suggestions related to the FTP on DGFT’s twitter page.

The Government is doing a mid-term review of FTP. For this, DGFT had sought suggestions from stakeholders.

DGFT AK Bhalla, recently said that the Commerce Ministry may have to make certain changes in the export related schemes due to the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The GST will subsume excise, service tax and other local levies.
