The commerce ministry has laid out an online system for claiming benefits under Transport and Marketing Assistance (TMA) scheme, aimed at promoting exports of agri goods.
"...exporters can now file applications online to avail assistance under the scheme on E-COM module," the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said in a trade notice.
In March, the government announced this scheme for providing financial assistance for transport and marketing of agriculture products to boost exports of such commodities to certain countries in Europe and North America.
Under the TMA plan, the government will reimburse a certain portion of freight charges and provide assistance for marketing of agricultural produce.
The scheme covers freight and marketing assistance for export by air as well as sea (both normal and refrigerated cargo).
The scheme will cover exports from March 1 this year to March 2020.
