Changes in IEC with the introduction of GST

As a measure of ease of doing business, it has been decided to keep the identity of an entity uniform across the Departments/Ministries, PAN of an entity will be used for the purpose of IEC, i.e., it will be issued by DGFT with the difference that it will be alphanumeric and will be same as PAN of an entity.


For new applicants with effect from 12th June 2017, apply for IEC will be made to DGFT and applicant’s PAN will be authorized as IEC, for residuary categories under Para 2.07 of HBP 2015-20, the IEC will be either UIN issued by GSTN and authorized by DGFT or any common number to be notified by DGFT.


For obtainable holders, essential changes in the system are being carried out by DGFT so that their PAN becomes their IEC. DGFT system will undertake this migration and the existing IEC holders are not requisite to undertake any additional exercise in this regard. Holders are necessary to quote their PAN in all their future documentation, w.e.f. the notified date. The inheritance data which is based on IEC would be converted into PAN based in due course of time.
