The Director-General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) introduced the online e-PRC System for Application seeking Policy/Procedure relaxation.
Presently, the Directorate is receiving applications for seeking policy/procedure laxation in terms of Para 2.58 of FTP 2015-20 in manual form. As a consequence, the rest of the process also happens in manual mode and takes time.
As a part of IT Revamp of the organization, the Directorate has decided to introduce a new module (online e-PRC System) for seeking policy/procedure relaxation in terms of Para 2.58 of FTP.
Therefore, from January 25, 2021 onwards, all applications seeking policy/procedure relaxation are mandatorily required to be submitted online through the exporter’s dashboard on the DGFT Website.
Manual submission of application seeking policy/procedure relaxation would no longer be allowed from January 25, 2021 onwards.
Accordingly, all exporters/importers seeking relaxation of FTP/IBP provisions are required to submit their application electronically only Physical copies of the applications seeking policy procedure relaxation received after January 25, 2021 will not be acted upon by this Directorate.
“Please navigate to https://dgft.gov.in to access the new e-module. Please note that the entire process is designed to be paperless and contactless and any PRC submission, communication, clarification, correction as well as the approval on submitted applications would be electronic,” the DGFT in the circular said.Subscribe Taxscan AdFree to view the Judgment
