Circular No.ES/ 54/2018-19 May 19, 2018

Sub: Extension of date for mandatory digital payment through e-MPS
DGFT has issued Trade Notice No. 11/2018 dated 18th May, 2018 informing about the extension of date for mandatory digital payment through e-MPS.
As you may be aware, a facility for digital payment for miscellaneous applications (e-MPS) was launched vide Trade notice No. 25/2018 dated 14.03.2018.
While Regional Authorities (RAs) of O/o DGFT can access e-MPS through login id/ password, exporters are required to have a DSC (IEC embedded) to make payment. The digital payment was made mandatory after one month from the date of issuance of the trade notice No. 25/2018.
In this regard, RAs have reported that there are users who do not possess DSC, but need to make payment. These users are unable to make digital payment, as they do not possess DSC.
The issue has been resolved by making changes in e-MPS to delink it from DSC for login purpose for the convenience of the exporters.
Please note that the date for mandatory digital payment through e-MPS is extended to 01.06.2018.
Members may kindly make a note of the above.
