Advisory for Simplified Auto Registration at ICEGATE

In a bid to simplify auto registration for the IEC holders, the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs ( CBIC ) has informed that the IEC holders can register with the Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN). It was said that no Digital Signature is required for the same.
The facility is now available on www.icegate.gov.in.
“IEC holders (Importer/Exporter) can now register at ICEGATE without Digital Signature. Registration is allowed with IEC and any of one GSTIN attached to it. Please choose one GSTIN carefully, pertaining to the IEC,” the CBIC said.
Presently, IEC Registration is allowed on ICEGATE website, with Digital Signature and requires approval. Such registered IEC holders can file documents on ICEGATE. To attract importers and exporters for Registration on ICEGATE and to provide them with various information services including reports, a need is felt to provide a Simplified Auto Registration on ICEGATE.
This Simplified Auto Registration is based on IEC and GSTIN, requires OTP verifications of e-mail and mobile number. The simplified Registration Module in ICEGATE is designed to register at the ICEGATE without the need to upload the Digital Signature Certificate (DSC), PAN verification, document upload to ICEGATE and approval procedure.





In connection with this, the Board has also issued an advisory explaining the different cases of simplified Registration Process.
