refer to EPD Circular Letter No. 8 dated July 12, 2006
in terms of which the subsidy of Rs. 8 per Kg on imported
whole gram black (for splitting into Dal Channa) was allowed.
of Food, Agriculture and Livestock have now clarified
that the said subsidy is available on import of gram/
chick peas having botanical name as Cicer Arietinum. Yellow
peas are not eligible for the said subsidy.
Dealers are, therefore, advised to forward claims ensuring
compliance of above requirement by way of asking importers
to submit an evidence showing botanical name of the gram/chick
peas being imported as “Cicer Arietinum”.
The said evidence which may be in the form of Phytosanitary
Certificate issued by the concerned agency of the exporter’s
country should be submitted by the Authorized Dealer alongwith
the application for subsidy claim.
