Re-operationalization of Scrip Transfer Recording Module
We would like to inform you that O/o DGFT has issued Trade Notice 01/2022-23 dated April 11, 2022 on re-operationalization of the Scrip Transfer Recording Module.
We understand that consequent to receiving certain information from exporters that certain fraudulent scrip transfers have taken place, the Online scrip transfer recording module was suspended. Thereafter, based on inputs/discussions with the Department of Revenue and in the interest of trade facilitation it has now been decided to re-operationalize the IT module which was put in place through Trade Notice No. 42 dated January 11, 2019 and Trade Notice No. 03 dated April 03, 2019 with additional features/limitations.
The additional features which have been added in the Scrip Transfer Recording Module are –
Introduction of time-lag for transfer of scrip from the original scrip owner to the next transferee, i.e. the original owner of the scrip (A) will not be able to transfer the scrip to another entity (B) on an immediate basis and will be able to do that after ‘n’ number of days from the scrip issue date;
Introduction of time-lag for transfer of scrip subsequent to IEC Modification, i.e. once IEC has been modified in the IT database, the IEC holder will be able to transfer scrips only after ‘x’ number of hours of IEC modification date/time;
Certain IECs which have been ‘flagged’ in the IT database based on certain Rules like same mobile number linked to more than Three (3) IECS, PAN mis-match, Director/Partner name mis-match etc will not be allowed to use the Scrip Transfer Recording Module until this Flag is suitably rectified by the IEC holder.
EXIM community has been advised to follow necessary due diligence as per Trade Notice No. 26 dated November 26, 2021, ensure safe custody of their digital dongles (DSCs) and review their IEC user profile, SMS/Email communications being sent to them on a regular basis and report any untoward incident to the concerned authorities. Trade is also required to get in touch with the concerned Certifying Agencies (CA) authorized by Controller of Certifying Authority (CCA) under the IT Act if any unauthorized issuance/usage of DSC in your name is noticed for corrective actions including cancellation of such DSC.
The original duty scrip holder is required to register the duty credit scrip at the Port of Registration with Customs and the ‘transfer’ of scrips from one IEC to another IEC will be as per the negotiated terms & conditions between the buyer and the seller. DGFT/Customs shall not be responsible for any lapse between the transferor or the transferee (old or new owner of the scrips) or any dispute in this regard.
Members are requested to take note of this Trade Notice and do the needful accordingly. The said DGFT Trade Notice is available on below link for ready reference-
Feed-backs, if any may also be sent to the council on e-mail ids: - firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com, for records/ further deliberations, if required.
