Online facility to check status of Importers Exporter Code application launched
New Delhi, Apr 12 (KNN) The Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has launched a facility to check status of Importer Exporter Code (IEC) application made to DGFT Importer Exporter Code (IEC).
In a notification, DGFT said, “IEC holders may please note that IEC is ready for Import/ Export of goods only after IEC details get successfully registered at DGFT and accepted by ICEGATE(Customs).”
It has come to notice of DGFT that in some cases even after issuance of IEC by DGFT, the IEC data though transmitted by DGFT to ICEGATE (Customs) is not accepted by ICEGATE (Customs) due to some transmission errors, said the authority.
As a result, the IEC holder is unable to export or import using this lEC.
Therefore, for early detection of such cases and timely resolution of such cases, a facility has been created to check the current status of IEC application and status of IEC transmission to ICEGATE.
The status query is based on PAN used in IEC application made to DGFT. The facility to check status of Import Export Code(lEC) application can be accessed from DGFT website using Online Application -> IEC -> Know your IEC Status or directly from http://126.96.36.199:8100/lecStatusReport/ link.
