Issuance of export authorisation/license by DGFT (Hqrs.) for export of
The Directorate General of Foreign Trade, New Delhi has issued Trade Notice No.20/2018-19 dated 06/07/2018 regarding Issuance of export authorisation/license by DGFT (Hqrs.) for export of SCOMET items.
As you might be aware, delay in export authorisations for SCOMET items has been an issue which has also been represented by the trade/council to DGFT HQ.
Taking cognizance of the concerns of the trade, DGFT has notified that that w.e.f. 06.07.2018, export authorisations for SCOMET items would be issued by the SCOMET Cell, DGFT (Hqrs) under the signature of FTDO (SCOMET), DDG (Export) or any other official designated for the purpose, with a copy to jurisdictional Regional Authorities of DGFT.
However, issues relating to revalidation of SCOMET authorisations after expiry, penal action in terms of FTDR Act, grant of MEIS and other benefit, etc., would continue to be handled by the concerned jurisdictional Regional Authority, in terms of the existing provision in FTP/HBP.
Further, jurisdictional Regional Authorities would immediately issue export authorisations in respect of those SCOMET cases, against which permissions have been issued by DGFT (Hqrs) prior to issue of this Trade Notice.
Members exporting SCOMET items are requested to take note of this change. You are also requested to provide your feed-back on this new procedure for our records (firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com )
