The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given approval to the scheme of providing budgetary support under goods and service tax (GST) regime. The provision is for the eligible industrial units located in Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and North Eastern states including Sikkim.

The budgetary support of Rs 27,413 crore for the scheme has been approved for the period from July 1, 2017 till March 31, 2027 for the industrial units located in aforesaid states which availed the benefit of central excise exemption prior to coming into force of GST regime. 

Upon repeal of the central excise duty laws, the government has decided to pay a budgetary support equal to the central share of the cash component of CGST and IGST paid by the affected eligible industrial units. The support shall be available for the residual period (ten years from the date of the commercial production) in the states of North Eastern region and Himalayan states. Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion will notify the scheme, including detailed operational guidelines for implementation of the scheme within 6 weeks.

It is estimated that total number of 4,284 eligible units located in the state(s) of Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and North Eastern States including Sikkim will benefit from the above scheme.

The Government of India was implementing North East Industrial and Investment Promotion Policy (NEIIPP), 2007 for North Eastern states including Sikkim and package for special category states for Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh to promote industrialisation. One of the benefits of the NEIIPP, 2007 and package for special category states was excise duty exemption for first 10 years after commencement of commercial production. (RR)
