RBI/2008-09/134 A. P. (DIR Seris) Circular No. 09 dated August 21, 2008

Advance Remittance for Import of Goods - Liberalisation

In cases where the importer (other than a Public Sector Company or a Department / Undertaking of the Government of India / State Government) is unable to obtain bank guarantee from overseas suppliers and the AD Category – I bank is satisfied about the track record and bonafides of the importer, the requirement of the bank guarantee / standby letter of credit may not be insisted upon for advance remittance up to USD 1,000,000 or its equivalent. AD Category – I banks may frame their own internal guidelines to deal with such cases as per a suitable policy framed by the bank's Board of Directors [cf A. P. (DIR Series) Circular No.15 dated September 17, 2003].

Now, it has been decided to enhance the limit of USD 1,000,000 mentioned above to USD 5,000,000 or its equivalent, with immediate effect.
