Dear Sir,

This dispensation was earlier extended up to October 31, 2003.

2. The validity of the reduction in the interest rates on pre-shipment rupee export credit up to 180 days and post-shipment credit up to 90 days announced on September 24, 2001 would now remain in force up to April 30, 2004 (Annex).

A communication to banks is being sent separately.
