DGFT has requested its Regional Offices the following –

  • To re-fix the annual average export obligation for EPCG Authorizations for the year 2018-19 accordingly.

  • Reduction, if any, in the Export Obligation (EO) should be appropriately endorsed in the licence file pertaining to the concerned EPCG Authorisation, as also in the Amendment Sheet to be issued to the EPCG Authorisation holder.

  • Regional Offices, while considering requests of discharge of EO will ensure that in case of shortfall in EO fulfillment, Policy Circulars earlier issued in terms of Para 5.11.2 of HBP 2009-14, and Para 5.19 of Hand Book of Procedures of FTP 2015-20 are also considered before issuance of demand notice etc. This stipulation should also form part of Check Sheet for the purpose of Export Obligation Discharge Certificate (EODC).

Members may kindly make a note of the above.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

S.BALARAJU
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
