    Hi Sachin,

    This is really a very helpful document. I was stuck with this requirment for couple of days. And finally found the solution. I need one more help from your side. Now when the system start calculating the FX fees structure automatically, how system automatically split this amount as Service Tax -Basic, KKC and Swatch Bharat Cess. It would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance. You can share document to my email Id: vishal.tauras22@gmail.com
