       Sub: Replacement of Fixed Deposit Receipts (FDRs) furnished in respect of
       provisional Mega or Ultra Mega Power Projects with Bank Guarantees (BGs) - reg.

Sir / Madam,

       I am directed to invite your attention to notification Nos. 12/2012-Customs (S.No.507)
and 12/2012-Central Excise (S.No. 337 and 338), both dated 17-03-2012, granting exemption
from customs and excise duties for provisional mega and ultra-mega power projects. One of the
conditions specified for availing of the said exemption is that the importer/project developer
furnishes a security in the form of a Fixed Deposit Receipt (FDR) or Bank Guarantee from a
Scheduled Bank for a term of 36 months or more for an amount equal to the duty payable but for
this exemption. This condition was amended w.e.f 27-06-2012 when the importer/ project
developer was given the option of furnishing either FDR or Bank Guarantee from a Scheduled
Bank.




2.     It has been represented by the Association of Power Producers that the developers should
be allowed to secure release of the FDRs submitted by them prior to 27-06-2012 (i.e. date of
DoR notifications) and the same should be substituted with Bank Guarantees. The matter has
been examined by the Ministry. It has been felt that as long as a FDR was furnished as security,
the FDR continued to operate as security. If an importer/ developer wishes to replace the FDR by
a Bank Guarantee, the Bank Guarantee will operate from the date of replacement. Since under
the amended notifications, FDR and Bank Guarantee are considered equally effective securities,
it has been decided that there should not be any difficulty in allowing the importer/ project
developer to replace the FDR with the Bank Guarantee.

3.      It is requested that action may be taken accordingly to deal with such requests.
4.      Difficulties, if any, faced in the implementation of the instructions may be brought to the
notice of the Ministry at an early date.




                                                                                  Yours faithfully,




                                                                                   (P.K.Mohanty)
                                                                            Joint Secretary (TRU)
                                                                        Telephone: 011 23092687
