Export and Import Organizations (EXIM organizations) can apply for licenses online which means that they can also file accompanying documents electronically on the DGFT website. Since a Digital Signature Certificate ensures authenticity of the document, DGFT has mandated use of Digital Signature Certificates with all electronic documents uploaded on the DGFT site. This means that every EXIM Organisation needs to necessarily have a Digital Signature Certificate for DGFT for transactions related to the DGFT website. On validating the identity of the sender, authenticity of the documents and validity of the DSC, DGFT then processes the documents for licence issuance. In addition to convenience, online submission of applications on the DGFT website also mean a 50% reduction in licence fee for EXIM Organisations
Organisations can prevent fraudulent practices such as identity thefts by filing bills of entry using a Digital Signature Certificate. If an organisation is filing documents through Custom House Agents, it is important that all documents filed are accompanied by a DSC.Enroll NOW !!
