RBI-Export of Goods and Services - Simplification and Revision of Declaration Form for Exports of Goods/Softwares
September, 16th 2013

RBI/2013-14/254
A.P. (DIR Series) Circular No.43

September 13, 2013

To

All Authorised Dealers in Foreign Exchange

Madam / Sir,

Export of Goods and Services- 
Simplification and Revision of Declaration Form for Exports of Goods/Softwares

Attention of the Authorised Dealers is invited to Regulation 6 of the Notification No.FEMA 23/2000-RB dated May 3, 2000 viz. Foreign Exchange Management (Export of Goods and Services) Regulations, 2000, as amended by the Notification No.FEMA 36/2001-RB dated February 27, 2001 and A.P. (DIR Series) Circular No. 80 dated February 15, 2012 ,in terms of which every exporter of goods or softwares has to give declaration in one of the forms (GR/PP/SDF/SOFTEX/Bulk SOFTEX) and submit it to the specified authority for certification.

2. In order to simplify the existing form used for declaration of exports of Goods/Softwares, a common form called “Export Declaration Form” (EDF) has been devised to declare all types of export of goods from Non-EDI ports and a common “SOFTEX Form” to declare single as well as bulk software exports. The EDF will replace the existing GR/PP form used for declaration of export of Goods. The procedure relating to the exports of goods through EDI ports will remain the same and SDF form will be applicable as hitherto. The EDF and SOFTEX form have been given in Annex I and Annex II respectively.

3. Under the revised procedure, the exporters will have to declare all the export transactions, including those less than US$25000, in the form as applicable.

4. Reserve Bank of India will be extending the facilities to exporters for online generation of SOFTEX Form No. (Single as well as Bulk) for use in Off-Site Software exports, in addition to EDF Form No. (Present web-based process of generation of GR Form No. gets replaced) through its website www.rbi.org.in . In order to generate the above number, the applicant has to fill-in the online form (Path www.rbi.org.in → Forms → FEMA → Forms Printing EDF/SOFTEX Form No.), thereafter, the related EDF/SOFTEX Form No. would be generated for each transaction by the applicant exporter. The specimen of online form and the advice are given in Annex III. The present facility of manual allotment of single as well bulk SOFTEX form number by Regional Offices of RBI would be dispensed with accordingly.

5. The Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) requires exporters to complete the EDF/SOFTEX Form using the number so allotted and submit them to the specified authority first for certification and then to AD for necessary action as hitherto.

6. The above instruction will come into force from October 1, 2013. Authorised Dealers may bring the contents of this circular to the notice of their constituents concerned.

7. The directions contained in this circular have been issued under Section 10(4) and Section 11(1) of the FEMA, 1999 (42 of 1999) and are without prejudice to permissions / approvals, if any, required under any other law.

Yours faithfully,

(C.D.Srinivasan)
