Get your EODC Online with Ease

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; 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.

EPGC Redemption

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.

EPCG Redemption Process

  • The holder of an EPCG authorization must submit a redemption application to the RA DGFT after the export obligation has been fulfilled, along with any necessary supporting papers.
  • If the applicant has fulfilled the requirement, they may seek redemption even before completion of the EO duration (i.e., six years).
  • Depending on the export type, the exporter must keep documentation of the Bill of Export or shipping bills, i.e., Indirect, Third-Party, and Deemed Export Using e-BRC.
  • Only when EPCG License information is included on a shipping bill that contains details of an Advance Authorization, DFIA, MEIS, or other reward schemes will the shipment be considered to have fulfilled the EO.
  • In addition, according to Policy Circular No. 7, an Affidavit can be submitted for Shipping Bills that contain the Drawback scheme but were not correctly filed under EPCG.
  • The EPCG system does not take into account freight-free shipment invoices.
  • Direct export, third-party export, export through a Group Company, and presumed export are all acceptable methods of satisfying the Export Obligation.

EODC Online of Advance Authorization

Following satisfaction of the Export Obligation, the exporter must provide the DGFT with all necessary documentation for EODC of the Advance License.

The exporter may not sell or dispose of the raw materials until the Advance License has been redeemed. Shipping Bill/Bill of Export, E-BRC, and Advance License are the bare minimum paperwork needed to close an Advance License or redeem an existing one.

If the DGFT receives the proper paperwork for EODC of an Advance License, they will do so by issuing a Redemption/Closure letter. This effectively absolves you of all further export responsibility.

Advance License Redemption process

  • To continue with the program, enter the user credentials and select the login button.
  • The Authorization holder can easily craft a license termination application by including references to the files in the Repositories.

  • Fill out the application, make the payment, and send it in to be processed.

After making the necessary payments, you should turn in your Redemption applications to the appropriate DGFT office. The regional authority of the DGFT will provide the EODC (Export Obligation Discharge Certificate)/ Redemption Letter to the Authorization holder after verifying the application for closure is complete in all respects.

The online module must be used for subsequent communication, clarification, deficiency letter, or redemption.
