The clarity on eligibility of exporters to claim incentives for exports made since FY 2018-19 was much awaited. However, although the due date for submission is less than four months away, the online facility to make the applications is yet to be enabled. Furthermore, the SEIS incentive rates for FY 2019-20 have not been notified by the government till date. Therefore, exporters may face practical challenges in completing and submitting their applications in such a short time frame. The government should explore the possibility of extending the current due date of 31 December 2021 (with or without late cut) so that exporters get sufficient time to submit their applications.
