If you are a status holder (e.g., export house), you can send but you must submit the GR/SDF form to the bank. If you are not a status holder, your bank can regularise the cases where you send the documents up to a value of $1 million to the consignee or his agent in the country of final destination of goods provided you realise full export proceeds and the bank is satisfied that the transaction is genuine. For this facility, you must be a customer of the bank for at least six months and your account must be fully compliant with RBI guidelines.
