TO ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL
EODC Online Monitoring System for Advance/EPCG Authorisations
You might be aware that, O/o DGFT had earlier come out with a system in 2018 which was designed for monitoring the progress of EODC applications of Advance/EPCG authorisations, which is accessed at http://eodc.online. All RAs were expected to input the data related to applications submitted by exporters.
However, it was noticed that in few cases of AA/EPCG, the EODC/closure is issued manually during earlier periods is incorrectly reflected in the online system.
The O/o DGFT HQ has now issued Trade Notice No. 24/2022-23 dated 12.01.2023 whereby we understand that after the implementation of the revamped DGFT IT systems, the redemption/EODC details in respect of Advance/ EPCG authorizations including IEC details, status of licence, redemption applied or approved, details of data transmission etc. are accessible on DGFT website (https://dgft.gov.in) —> Services > Info for Customs Authorities.
Therefore, the exporters are provided with an alternative wherein they can confirm the status of past authorisations on DGFT website. In case the authorisation is closed/redeemed, and the status is incorrectly reflected, the exporters are required to upload the copy of the closure/redemption letter against the said Authorisation, (https://dgft.gov.in) – Services – AA/DFIA/EPCG >Manual EODC Update. RA may verify the submitted requests and update the status of the said cases after verification from its records.
In view of above, the instructions in respect to the usage of http://eodc.online are withdrawn with immediate effect.
Members are requested to take note of above and do the needful accordingly. The said Trade Notice is available for reference on below link-
