Since it creates liquidity problems for the exporters in 2005, Government introduced zero rating facility for the export-oriented industrial sectors namely, textile, carpet, sports goods, surgical and leather to solve the issue. The facility of no payment no refund, has been withdrawn in the Finance Bill 2019-20.
