Department of Commerce, Government of India and Directorate General of Foreign Trade(DGFT) have undertaken to monitor the status of exports and imports, and difficulties being faced by trade stakeholders in view of the surge of COVID-19 cases.

All stakeholders, particularly the Exporters and Importers, may submit information on the DGFT website and submit information relating to their issues on which support is required using the following steps—

  1. Navigate to the DGFT Website (https://dgft.gov.in)           Services           DGFT             Helpdesk Service
  2.  ‘Create New Request’ and select the Category as ‘Covid-19′
  3.  Select the suitable sub-category, enter the other relevant details and submit.

Alternatively, One can send their issues to email id: dgftedi@nic.in with the subject header: Covid-19 Helpdesk or call at Toll Free No 1800-111-550
