IEC – Import Export Code

IEC – Import Export Code is issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT). It is a 10-digit number given to exporters to engage in foreign trade. The central government plays an important role in the import and export business in India.

The government of India has framed certain terms and conditions for applying for the Import Export Code with the DGFT. There are several regional DGFT offices spread across the country to apply for this code.

Every entrepreneur wants to build his business and take it to a higher level. For this one has to first grow his business in the domestic market and then spread globally.
