Types of Bond for Export
There are six types of bonds for
due dispatch of goods for export:
B 1 (General Surety)
B 1 (General Security)
B 1 6(General Surety)
B16 (General Security)
Exporters have option to execute a general bond (B1 General) or bond (B1) to cover a particular consignment. For particular B-1 bond, amount of bond should be equal to at least the duty on the goods to be exported. For general B-1 bond, the amount of bond would be equal to the full duty on the exporter's estimate of the maximum quantity of the excisable goods likely to be in transit during the period between the clearance from the factory and acceptance of proof of export. Rule 13 provides for execution of bond for a particular consignment while Rule 14 provides for export under a general bond - the consignments being dispatched from time to time. Bond in form B16 is a general bond (with surety/security) covering Rule 9B, 13, 14 and 192 for obtaining provisional assessment of goods under Rule 9B, for removal from time to time for export to a foreign country without payment of duty and for due accounting and disposal of excisable goods obtained without payment of the whole or part of duty for use in special industrial purpose under Chapter X of Central Excise Rules, 1944. The manufacturer exporter who has executed B-16 bond is not required to execute export bond to cover duty on goods exported without payment of duty.
