Sub: Doing away with the requirement of Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) for online/digital payment through miscellaneous applications (e-MPS)

Dear Member,

O/o DGFT has issued Trade Notice No. 15/2018 dated 04th June, 2018 regarding doing away with the requirement of DSC for online/digital payment through e-MPS.

As you may be aware, vide trade notice No. 25/2018 dtd. 14.03.2018, O/o DGFT had launched a facility for online/digital payment for miscellaneous applications (eMPS).

Through this facility, DGFT RAs can accesse-MPS through login id/ password but exporters were required to have a DSC (lEC embedded) to make payment. The date for mandatory digital payment through e-MPS was extended to 01.06.2018.

Now, DGFT has kept in view the difficulties faced by the exporters/importers in obtaining digital signatures for making miscellaneous payment digitally/online and has decided the following-

  • The requirement of DSC for exporters/importers to make digital/online payment through e-MPS has been done away with.
  • A person desiring to make online/digital payment can login in e-MPS using his PAN details.
  • There is no need for having digital signatures for making digital/online payment. The updated help available at http://164.100.128.143/eMPSHelp/eMPSHelpOnline.pdf. should be referred for the details.

Members may please make a note of the above and do the needful.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

S. BALARAJU
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
