As certain doubts have arisen in the Proforma of the certificate, it is clarified that the exporter has to indicate the details of the manufacturer or the exporter (if he himself is not the manufacturer) in Annexure "A" of the Free Sale & Commerce Certificate. Thereon the Regional Authority concerned will indicate the name of the manufacturer exporter as is being submitted by the Applicant in Annexure "B".
