Madam/ Sir,

Export of Goods - Long Term Export Advances

Attention of Authorised Dealer Category - I (AD Category I) banks is invited to the sub-regulation (2) of Regulation 16 of the Foreign Exchange Management (Export of Goods and Services) Regulations, 2000, notified vide Notification No.FEMA.23/RB- 2000, dated 3rd May 2000, as amended from time to time, in terms of which prior approval of the Reserve Bank is required to be obtained by an exporter for receipt of advance where the export agreement provides for shipment of goods extending beyond the period of one year from the date of receipt of advance payment. Further, in terms of A.P. (DIR Series) Circular No.81 dated February 21, 2012 AD Category- I banks have been permitted to allow exporters to receive advance payment for export of goods which would take more than one year to manufacture and ship and where the 'export agreement' provides for the same.

2. In view of requests received from exporters, it has been decided to permit AD Category- I banks to allow exporters having a minimum of three years’ satisfactory track record to receive long term export advance up to a maximum tenor of 10 years to be utilized for execution of long term supply contracts for export of goods subject to the conditions as under:

a) Firm irrevocable supply orders should be in place. The contract with the overseas party /buyer should be vetted and clearly specify the nature, amount and delivery timelines of products over the years and penalty in case of non- performance or contract cancellation. Product pricing should be in consonance with prevailing international prices.

b) Company should have capacity, systems and processes in place to ensure that the orders over the duration of the said tenure can actually be executed.

c) The facility is to be provided only to those entities, who have not come under the adverse notice of Enforcement Directorate or any such regulatory agency or have not been caution listed.

d) Such advances should be adjusted through future exports.

e) The rate of interest payable, if any, should not exceed LlBOR plus 200 basis points.

f) The documents should be routed through one Authorized Dealer bank only.

g) Authorised Dealer bank should ensure compliance with AML / KYC guidelines and also undertake due diligence for the overseas buyer so as to ensure it has good standing / sound track record.

h) Such export advances shall not be permitted to be used to liquidate Rupee loans, which are classified as NPA as per the Reserve Bank of India asset classification norms.

i) Double financing for working capital for execution of export orders should be avoided.

j) Receipt of such advance of USD 100 million or more should be immediately reported to the Trade Division, Foreign Exchange Department, Reserve Bank of India, Central Office, 5th Floor, Amar Building, Mumbai under copy to the concerned Regional Office of the Reserve Bank of India as per the format given in Annex – I.

3. In case Authorized Dealer banks are required to issue bank guarantee (BG) / Stand by Letter of Credit (SBLC) for export performance, the following guidelines may also be adhered to:

a) Issuance of BG / SBLC, being a non-funded exposure, should be rigorously evaluated as any other credit proposal keeping in view, among others, prudential requirements based on board approved policy. Such facility will be extended only for guaranteeing export performance.

b) BG / SBLC may be issued for a term not exceeding two years at a time and further rollover of not more than two years at a time may be allowed subject to satisfaction with relative export performance as per the contract.

c) BG / SBLC should cover only the advance on reducing balance basis.

d) BG / SBLC issued from India in favour of overseas buyer should not be discounted by the overseas branch / subsidiary of bank in India.

e) Authorised Dealer bank should duly evaluate and monitor the progress made by the exporter on utilisation of the advance and submit an Annual Progress Report to the Trade Division, Foreign Exchange Department, Reserve Bank of India, Central Office, 5th Floor, Amar Building, Mumbai under copy to the concerned Regional Office of the Reserve Bank of India in format as perAnnex - II within a month from the close of each financial year.

4. AD Category - I banks may bring the contents of this circular to the notice of their constituents and customers concerned.

5. The directions contained in this circular have been issued under Sections 10(4) and 11 (1) of the Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999 (42 of 1999) and are without prejudice to permissions approvals, if any, required under any law.
