In exercise of the power conferred under section 37B of the Central Excise Act, 1944, the Central Board of Excise and Customs having been satisfied that it is necessary and expedient so to do for the purpose of uniformity with respect to levy of duties of excise on goods exported under bond under rule 13 of the Central Excise Rules, 1944, rule 19 of the Central Excise Rules, 2001 and rule 19 of the Central Excise Rules 2002, issues following orders, instructions and directions:-

  1. As per rule 19 of the Central Excise Rules, 2002, any excisable goods may be exported without payment of duty under bond. Prior to coming into force of the Central Excise Rules, 2002, rule 19 of the Central Excise Rules, 2001 and rule 13 of the Central Excise Rules, 1944, had similar provisions.  
  2. Apart from the duties chargeable under the Central Excise Act, 1944, certain other duties of excise are chargeable under different Acts of Parliament. The relevant Acts explicitly stipulate that the provisions of the Central Excise Act and the rules made thereunder, including those relating to refunds and exemptions from duties, shall, as far as may be, apply in relation to the levy and collection of such other duties of excise as they apply in relation to the levy and collection of the duties of excise leviable under that Act or those rules, as the case may be.  
  3. Accordingly, none of the duties leviable under any such Act of Parliament is required to be paid on export of goods under bond under rule 19 of the Central Excise Rules, 2002 or rule 19 of the Central Excise Rules, 2001 or rule 13 of the Central Excise Rules, 1944.  
  4. A number of instructions and circulars, indicating the position as above have been issued by the Board from time to time in respect of various such duties brought in by various Acts from time to time. Some of such circulars are as follows:-
