NO.CLE-HO/POL/CIRCULAR/14-15 April 21, 2014
Members of the Council,
Sub: Final opportunity to IEC holders to update their telephone numbers, mobile numbers and E-mail Ids with complete PAN details.
As members are kindly aware, DGFT Public Notice No.84 dated 11.11.11 made some amendments with regard to application form for obtaining import export code number. The Addl. DGFT, Mumbai has now issued a Trade Notice No.1 dated 10th April 2014 on the above subject stating the following.
Attention of all members of trade and industry is invited to Public Notice No.84 dated 11.11.11 issued by DGFT New Delhi, wherein it was informed that complete PAN details, telephone numbers, email ID and mobile number (of the signatory of the ANF 2A) is made mandatory in the IEC data base. Since it is observed that some of the IEC holders have not yet updated their IEC details as mentioned above, a final opportunity is given to all such IEC holders who have not updated their IEC details to update their telephone numbers, mobile numbers and email Ids with complete PAN details by 30th June, 2014. Kindly note no further extension will be given.
As a measure of trade facilitation and in order to reduce transaction cost and time, it has been decided by the Addl. DGFT, Mumbai that in future all communications and deficiency letters for all types of applications made to this office, if any, will be communicated to the members of trade and industry via email also.
If E-mail ID, mobile number and telephone numbers are not updated, the party would run the risk of not receiving important information/communications from this office which would not be in their own interest.
Members may kindly note the above.
Thanks & regards,
R.Ramesh Kumar, IAS
