Ice gate registration

As a director of a company, I want to register on ICE GATE. I created ICEGATE user ID and mail ID by following the long procedure for registration.I couldn't attach the required documents on the site at that time. But now as the simplified auto registration procedure is introduced, can I use that same User ID & email ID for login/ complete registration? Also when I tried to go for the simplified auto registration, I did not recieve any OTP or password after putting IEC and GSTIN. Kindly guide as the customs department has held the company's package and we want to clear it out.

Para 6.15 (b)of FTP permits disposal of destroyed materials from EOU into DTA upon payment of applicable taxes under GST laws.

We (100% EOU) had some imported raw materials, which were rejected due to quality issues and as per the above FTP provision, we destroyed the same after intimation to Customs authorities and were about to sell it as scrap in the DTA on payment of GST on scrap value.

While checking on this, the DC, MEPZ is of the opinion that we need to discharge the Import Customs Duties (duty foregone) applicable on the Imported items, even if they are destroyed. The FTP says "........No duty shall be payable other than the applicable taxes under GST laws.......".

The FTP Para is for "Sale of Unutilized material", which confirms material can be sold or removed.

Please confirm if the Customs Duty has to be discharged, even if the imported material (rejected) is destroyed beyond use. We are willing to pay applicable GST on the scrap value.

Please let me know if any further details are required. Thanks very much and would appreciate an immediate response from the experts.

Hello there,

We are importing machined and we have total duty saved amount of 4.30 Cr.

From that arround 3.60 Cr is IGST amount and other is basic duty + cess.

Now i have 2 questions in mind.

1:- As our product is not export much and we can get more value of product in india. So if we want to surrender licence after 2 years with 30% of completed export of EO amount as we know that we are not able to export.

---> Is that possible?
---> What amount of duty and interest + penalty at time of surrender?

2:- If question 1 is possible then can we get set-off of IGST amount that we pay after surrender of licence?

If all question a accepted can you please give me link of government notification link.

Thanks waiting for reply.
