DGFT has created an online EODC (Export Obligation Discharge Certificate) monitoring system to track the status of Advance and EPCG authorization applications. Exporters who wish to apply for EODC can do so through a website accessible at http://eodc.online; once an EODC or Deficiency letter has been issued, the exporter can log in and view an updated status of their application.
The DGFT also announced the addition of a facility that allows exporters to check the status of their active EODC applications. Suppose exporters believe that their EODC applications are still unresolved with the RAs (Regional Authorities) but not in the system.
In that case, they can submit a query in the system, and the RAs will take the necessary steps to add these applications to the database. If an exporter has a question, RA will look into whether or not an application has been filed for EODC of EPGC or AA that has not yet been processed. There is some discretion on RA’s part regarding whether or not to accept the inquiry.
The DGFT will ensure you’ve completed the mission (export obligation) it gave you through the EPCG License/ redemption procedure. If the government is providing substantial assistance in duty-free imports of capital goods, then it seems that they would like confirmation from the exporter as to whether or not they have done so.
EPCG Redemption refers to this method of tracking data. The EPCG holder must apply to the relevant DGFT office for closure or redemption of the EPCG License if they have met all of the requirements outlined in the EPCG program.
When DGFT provides a Redemption Letter after verifying your compliance, you know you’re done with your part. Please note that we have not permanently revoked your license due to this redemption letter.
