What was the need for the introduction of the RoDTEP Scheme?

For all this while, you must be wondering – what was the need for such a scheme? Of course, every government aid emerges with a reason! It is no different here!
When the U.S. Government challenged our Export Subsidy Scheme in the WTO meeting, charging it to be harmful to American workers and violating the trading norms of WTO, the RoDTEP took birth. The main purpose was certainly to stay in compliance with the WTO norms.
By this time, many Indian export promotion schemes got recommended to be withdrawn by the WTO panel. Such as –
1. The Merchandise Export from India Scheme,
2. Special Economic Zones Scheme,
3. Export Promotion Capital Goods Scheme,
4. Duty-free Import for Exporters Scheme,
5. Export Oriented Units Scheme, and so forth!
Hence, The RoDTEP came as the most feasible alternative. It is to take care of the needs of Indian exporters & simultaneously stay non-rebukeable in front of the global markets & institutions!
It is to act as an impoverishment of the previous export subsidy programs in India!
