in Domestic Tariff Areas (DTAs) against payment in foreign exchange
The matter has since been reviewed in consultation with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India and it has been decided to allow ADs to sell foreign exchange to a unit in the DTA for making payment in foreign exchange to a unit in the SEZ for the services rendered by it (i.e. a unit in SEZ) to a DTA unit. It may, however, be ensured that there is an enabling provision of supplying these goods/services by the SEZ unit to the DTA unit and for payment in foreign exchange for such goods/ services to the SEZ unit, in the Letter of Approval (LoA) issued to the SEZ unit by the Development Commissioner(DC) of the SEZ.
