5                Illustration explaining SGST and interest refund mechanism

If any company wants to make investment in Wada which is D+ zone in such case, in following manner refund can be claimed.

Under the scheme, for unit in D+ zone, the State Government will refund 60% of total capital investment in the entity, over a period of 10 years. The refund will be given by way of SGST and Interest subsidy.

Thus, if Rs. 10 crore is capital investment in a D+ zone, the financial incentives available are as follow:

Capital investment

10 crore

Refund eligible

6 crore in 10 years

eligible refund per year

60 lakhs

Hence, unit will be eligible to get refund of Rs. 60 lakhs in each year.

In above case, if unit has made sale of 6.4 crore. In such case, SGST paid @9% will be Rs. 57.60 lakhs on sale. In such case, total SGST eligible for refund will be Rs. 57.60 lakhs

Further, unit has taken bank loan and on such bank load paid interest @12% of Rs. 24 lakhs. So from such interest only 5% interest is allowed to take refund. Hence, up to Rs. 10 lakhs can be taken as refund. In such scenario following amount can be claimed as interest subsidy:

2) Interest subsidy

Interest paid

10 lakhs

Electricity bill
