“We have told the RBI that every company should rebook 25% of the turnover. Secondly, the RBI said that we cannot keep more than 50% in our EEFC account; it will automatically get credited into rupee terms. We argued that this is not practical in sectors like gem and jewellery, petroleum, plastics and other sector where import content is higher than 50%,” says Ahmed.
