New Delhi, Sep 16 (KNN) As the Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday announced the government's third set of measures to revive the economy with a renewed focus on exports and realty sector, Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal has said that the Centre's new measures on boosting the exports sector will benefit micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) exporters with a new scheme for reimbursing taxes, reduced insurance cost and ease of doing business.
Goyal took to the micro-blogging site Twitter on Saturday and said, "Thank PM @narendramodi & FM @nsitharaman for today's announcements to boost exports. These will help make Indian exports competitive & especially benefit MSME exporters with a new scheme for reimbursing taxes, reduced insurance cost & ease of doing business."
On Saturday, she introduced a new scheme for Remission of Duties or Taxes on Export Products (RoDTEP) to replace the current Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS) from next year.

Sitharaman also said that an additional Rs 36,000 crores to 68,000 crores will be released for the MSMEs to ensure higher credit availability for exports.
