The Director General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) introduced the online e-PRC System for Application seeking Policy/Procedure relaxation on 15th January, 2021.
Presently, this Directorate is receiving applications for seeking policy/procedure relaxation in terms of Para 2.58 of FTP 2015-20 in manual form (i.e.in the form of hard copy of prescribed format ANF 2D along with proof of payment of application fee and other related documents). As a consequence, rest of the process also happens in manual mode and takes time.
As a part of IT Revamp of the organisation, this 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 25.01.2021 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 25.01.2021 onwards.
Accordingly, all exporters/importers seeking relaxation of FTP/HBP provisions are required to submit their application electronically only. Physical copies of the application(s) seeking policy/procedure relaxation received after 25.01.2021 will not be acted upon by this Directorate.
