Please refer to IH & SMEFD Circular No. 09 and IH & SMEFD Circular No. 17 dated July 31, 2015 and October 30, 2015 respectively regarding the captioned subject.

2. It has been decided that the markup rate for exporters availing financing facilities under Export Finance Scheme (EFS) will be 3.0% p.a. with effect from July 01, 2016 till further instructions. Banks’ spread for Corporate borrowers and SME borrowers will remain unchanged at 1% & 2% respectively.
