Attention of the trade is invited to para 7.38 of the Handbook of Procedures 1997-2000 and also this office Trade Notice no. 19 dated 25.2.1999.

During 1997-98 DEPBs were issued without insisting on proof of realisation of export proceeds. During 1998-99 and 1999-2000, non-transferable DEPBs and transferable DEPBs (against exports made under letter of credit) were issued without insisting on proof of realisation of export proceeds.

In cases where the amount realised is less than the amount of which DEPB credit has been obtained, the licence holder shall pay in cash an amount equivalent to the DEPB entitlement of the value not realised.
