Simplification of the procedure for online submission of Total Bill of Material (BoM) and application for issue of Concessional Customs Duty Certificates (CCDC) and Excise Duty Exemption Certificate (EDEC) for availing duty benefits by the Solar Power Project Developers (SPDs) for initial setting up of their solar power plants in India
(i) To simplify the process of Certification and to avoid double certification by empanelled Chartered Engineer, the requirement of certification by empanelled Chartered Engineer on each certificate of CCD/EDE has been done away with.
(ii) The certification by the empanelled Chartered Engineer will, however, be only at the stage of BoM. While certifying the BoM, the empanelled CE is now required to examine each item/component, their description, quantity and specifications mentioned in the BoM and he has to certify that no ineligible item is included in the BoM. If it is found that he has not done his duty properly or any ineligible item found included in the BoM during scrutiny in the Ministry, he may be liable to be debarred from the job of certifying the BoM of solar power projects.
(iii) It shall be mandatory on the part of SPD/EPC Contractor, to file a completion report to MNRE on actual consumption of material and usage of Certificates, duly certified by an empanelled Chartered Engineer, within two months after commissioning of the project. In case, the concerned SPD/EPC fails to send such a report within 2 months’ time limit, SPD/EPC and the concerned empanelled Chartered Engineer will be debarred from doing further projects/certification.
