Export import data plays a very integral role in the development of trading relations with various other nations and thus help in improving not only the economic growth but also provides a certain impetus needed in the trade industry.

DGFT ably manages the trade process in and out of the country and helps the country in many ways. It provides a complete searchable database of all exports & importers of India. Updates in policies are made by DGFT India every year on 31st march and the modification, improvements and new schemes become effective from April of each year.

For the development of the country’s trade there is a need for a comprehensive view to be taken regarding the export import policies of India. Trade propels economic growth and national development. The primary purpose is not the mere earning of foreign exchange, but the stimulation of greater economic activity.

For India to become a major player in world trade, an all encompassing, and comprehensive view needs to be taken for the overall development of the country’s foreign trade. DGFT (directorate general of foreign trade) gives all the necessary information and support to people thereby helping in the promotion of India’s foreign trade.
