CBIC initiates electronic disbursal of duty drawback amount directly to exporter’s bank accounts through PFMS from today, 5th June 2024

Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) will electronically disburse duty drawback amount directly to exporter’s bank account in a transparent and efficient manner with effect from today, 5th June, 2024. The payment of duty drawback amounts into the exporters’ accounts will be facilitated through the Public Finance Management System (PFMS) automatically. This is another initiative of the CBIC towards paperless Customs and enhanced trade facilitation.

This new functionality is expected to reduce time taken for payment of drawback amount by eliminating manual intervention in the drawback disbursal mechanism and increase transparency.
