As part of the Digital India program, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade(DGFT) is updating its service delivery mechanisms to promote and facilitate India's International trade and further help in Ease of Doing Business. The first phase of a new digital platform is scheduled to Go-Live from 13th July 2020. The new platform will be accessible through the existing website https://www.dgft.gov.in.
The following important points may be noted about the new platform design:
i. Access to the services would be through a username and password-based system.
ii. Users would have to link their login IDs to their specific IECs. The process of linking would be available post login through Digital Signature/Aadhaar based e-Sign.
iii. Digital Signature (DSC)/Aadhaar based e-Sign will be required for applying and modifying IEC or adding or updating the IEC-linked users.
