Circular No.ES/101/2018-19 June 22, 2018
To: Members of the Council
Sub: Submission of application seeking authorization for import/export of restricted items through e-mail.
We would like to inform you that O/o DGFT has issued a Trade Notice No. 18/2018 dated 20th June, 2018 to the kind notice of Members of Trade that importers/exporters who have submitted their online application for import/export of restricted items, after paying the applicable fees with the concerned jurisdictional RA's office, submit physical copies of their application to DGFT (Hqrs.), which takes considerable time.
DGFT has accordingly decided that henceforth w.e.f. 21.06.2018 applicants seeking import/export license from DGFT for "restricted" items, having paid the applicable fees, will submit online application to the concerned jurisdictional authority and subsequently send their application through email to either import-dgft(a)nic.in (for import licenses) or email@example.com (for export licenses) as the case may be, along with proof of the application fee paid; besides attaching the necessary documents for processing the case.
It is also informed that applications are required to be submitted in prescribed pro-forma ANF-2M (for import license) and ANF- 2N (for export license) along with ANF-l (Applicant's Importer Exporter Profile), copy of IEC and other supporting documents, as applicable. Aayat Niryat forms are available on the DGFT's website www.dgft.gov.in.
In case the applicant firm has received the NOC from the concerned administrative Ministry, the same should invariably be attached with the application.
Please note that applicants are requested to send their attachments only in PDF format.
Members may please make a note of the above and do the needful as instructed.
