Sub:   Online Applications for EODC/closure under Advance Authorisation Scheme (AAS) -Option to file manual applications

Dear Member, 

We would like to inform you that O/o DGFT has issued Trade Notice No. 28/2021-22 dated 31st December, 2021 regarding online applications for EODC/ closure under Advance Authorisation Scheme (AAS) - Option to file manual applications. In this regard, you may kindly refer to DGFT’s Trade Notice No. 49/2020-21 dated 29th March, 2021.

In view of difficulties expressed by Advance Authorization (AA) holders in their representations and also to ease process of fling of applications for closure of Advance authorizations, it has been decided by O/o DGFT to give an option to file manual/ physical EODC applications for all such AAs, which have been issued prior to 1st December, 2020.

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.

Thanking you,                 

Yours faithfully,
