Circular No. ES/220/2021-22 31st December, 2021
To: Members of the Council
In cases where the application for EODC/ closure has been received in manual/ physical mode, RAs on approval of such physical files are required to upload closure letters in the online system and update the status of the AA suitably.
In some cases of AA, the EODC/ closure issued manually in earlier periods is not reflected correctly in the online system. Option is therefore provided on the DGFT website where the status of the past AA Authorisations can be seen by concerned exporters. In case it is found that Authorisation has been closed/ redeemed and the status is not reflected correctly, the exporter is required to upload online the copy of the closure letter/ redemption letter against the said Authorisation. RA may verify the request submitted by exporter for EODC updation against available office records and process it suitably. RA may also choose to update the status of the said cases suo-motu after verification from its records.
For detailed information on the steps for EODC status updation, members may kindly refer to DGFT’s Trade Notice No. 28/2021-22 dated 31st December, 2021.
Members may kindly make a note of the above and do the needful.
