The E-MPS Portal has been created by the Directorate General of foreign trade (DGFT) to facilitate an Exporter or Importer to pay various miscellaneous fees pertaining to the trade related activities online. It aims at simplifying the payment process and making it faster.
The E-MPS portal can be used for various online payment applications of the importer or exporter. E-MPS portal need not mandatorily be used for import export code registration as a separate online portal is already present for that purpose, however, for all other payments to DGFT, E-MPS payment portal must be used.
The ECOM Reference number must be generated to make a payment on the E-MPS Portal by the exporter or importer. Multiple payments can be made via the E-MPS portal by opting appropriate subject, scheme, DGFT officer and other related details.
Upon successful payment on E-MPS portal, payment receipt must be printed by the exporter or importer and produced before the respective DGFT Authority along with application of payment.
The DGFT official will validate the payment details with the use of the ECOM Reference number and assign it as ‘USED’.
In case of multiple payments on a single ECOM Reference number, the DGFT official need to select all payments individually and mark them as ‘USED’
Upon completion of the above, a unique DGFT Reference number will be generated for each individual payment which can be used for future reference purposes.
