Sandip | Wed May 3 12:19:08 2017
GST rule is still silent about export documentation procedure. At present rule of excise exporter is wasting lot off time for physical visit at excise office for taking signature in various documents for export like ARE1,ARE3A and for executing procedure for various bond lie CT3,CT1,UT1 for export. All should eliminate for ease to doing business.Not to have single physical interface with departmental officer.
