AEPC has welcomed the extension of the Merchandise Exports from Indian Scheme beyond June 2018.
Earlier the Ministry of Commerce and Industry through a notification extended the applicability of the MEIS scheme on garments and made-ups beyond June 2018.
On behalf of the apparel export industry, AEPC gratefully acknowledges the support given by the government by extending the MEIS scheme indefinitely beyond June 2018. This will ensure that all embedded, non-reimbursed central and state levies will be refunded which will help in restoring the competitiveness of Indian exports. This will also increase India’s share in the world market and given its high employment intensity create significant employment opportunities across India.
Incorporated in 1978, AEPC is the official body of apparel exporters in India that provides assistance to Indian exporters as well as importers/ international buyers who choose India as their preferred sourcing destination for garments.
In recent years AEPC has worked tirelessly in integrating the entire industry - starting at the grass root level of training the workforce and supplying a steady stream of manpower to the industry; identifying the best countries to source machinery and other infrastructure and brokering several path breaking deals for its members and finally helping exporters to showcase their best at home fairs as well as be highly visible at international fairs the world over.
