Mr. Raina said, to compliment the efforts with support of technology, DGFT has already launched the EBRC (Bank Realization Certificate) through which all Banks are supposed to upload all the Banking Realization on dgft.gov.in which is a giant leap nearing towards paperless regime. The EBRC Module has been very successful, due to its benefits accruing on the fronts of its correctness, transaction cost, time and transmission without need for any physical interface by the banks and the users thereof. The submission of BRC in physical form has also been dispensed with by DGFT, thus making the documentation easier and friendly.
