Two weeks earlier, I wrote that the notifications for refund of Goods and Services Tax (GST) on deemed export and payment of 0.1 per cent GST on supplies to merchant exporters were more liberal than expected (Another set of new procedures, Oct 30). Some readers tell me it is not so. Last week, the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) gave new procedures for deemed export supplies to export-oriented units (EOUs) and some clarifications on export through merchant exporters.
In a welcome move, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has eased the procedures for clubbing of advance authorisations issued in the 2009-14 and 2015-20 Foreign Trade Policy (FTP) periods. And, given useful one-time dispensations to facilitate closure of authorisations under the Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG) scheme and older advance authorisations.
The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council, in its 22nd meeting on October 6, decided that domestic supplies to holders of advance authorisations, EPCG (Export Promotion Capital Goods) authorisations and Export Oriented Units (EOU) would be treated as deemed export under GST laws. Suppliers would get refunds of tax paid on these supplies. Also, that merchant exporters would have to pay a nominal GST of 0.1 per cent for procuring goods from domestic suppliers for export.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
