Exemptions to Trade and Industry

Recently, the Board has introduced some important amendments to give boost to Agro Industry in the State. One important amendment in this regard is provision for refund of Market fee deposited by a dealer on purchase of Rice of Paddy out of which Rice is extracted and exported to other countries from the State of Punjab on producing of export documents. Similarly, a provision for refund of market fee on fruit and vegetable exported outside the country from the State has been made. These two steps are likely to give big boost to rice shelling industry in the State and also to the trading in fruits and vegetables.
