NEW DELHI:  In a major relief for exporters of garments, the Union Cabinet has approved the continuation of Rebate of State and Central taxes and Levies (RoSCTL) scheme till March 31, 2024 with the same rates as notified earlier by the Ministry of Textiles.

“The other textiles products (excluding Chapters-61, 62 & 63) which are not covered under the RoSCTL shall be eligible to avail the benefits, if any, under RoDTEP along with other products as finalised by the department of commerce from the dates which shall be notified in this regard,” an official release said.
