Sub: Introduction of online e-Certificate Management System for Imports
O/o DGFT has issued Trade Notice No. 41/2020-21 dated 15th February, 2021 introducing an online e-Certificate Management System for Imports.
As a part of IT Revamp, DGFT proposes to introduce new modules (online e-Certificate Management System) for processing of certain applications.
From 22nd February, 2021 onwards, following applications types are required to be submitted online through the importer/exporter's dashboard on the DGFT Website –
All such certificates would be issued electronically with QR code and a Unique Document Identification Number (UDIN) for electronic verification.
Please navigate to https://dgft.gov.in >>> ‘Certificate Management System’ to access the new e-module. The entire process is designed to be paperless and contactless. Any submission, communication, clarification, correction as well as the approval of submitted applications would be electronic. However, attested paper copies of the certificates may be requested from the jurisdictional DGFT RA concerned when required.
For guidance on these new processes, the Help manual & FAQs may be accessed at https://dgft.gov.in >>> Learn >>> ‘Application Help & FAQs’. For any further assistance, members may utilize any of the following channels –
Members may kindly make a note of the above and do the needful accordingly.
