• In India, a shipping bill is generated electronically on ICEGATE – the Indian Customs Electric Data Interchange Platform
. The information on a shipping bill is automatically and electronically shared by ICEGATE with the DGFT. An exporter must link relevant shipping bills with e-BRC to claim export incentives.
• When an exporter claims an export incentive under a DGFT scheme, DGFT decides the value on which incentive is to be provided. For that, DGFT matches the Free on Board (FOB) value of the goods exported as contained in the shipping bill and the total realized value against export as mentioned in the e-BRC.
• While applying for an export incentive, exporter must ensure that the e-BRC value is reported by the bank and it shows the total realised value. If the e-BRC value is less, the bank should correct it.
