COMPUTATION OF ANNUAL AVERAGE EXPORT OBLIGATION UNDER EPCG SCHEME (PARA 5.04 (b) OF FOREIGN TRADE POLICY 2015.20 READ WITH PARA 5.12 OF HBP 2015-20).
The average Export Obligation under EPCG scheme shall be fixed as under:

While calculating Average Export Obligation, exports counted/being counted for fulfilling specific EO against EPCG Authorizations within valid EO Period (whether original or extended) that have been made in the preceding 3 years will not be taken into account.
(ii) If an applicant has been in existence for more than 3 years, the exports in each of the past 3 years (even if for some years, it may be zero) are aggregated and the aggregate export is divided by 3.
(iii) If an applicant has been in existence for less than 3 years, the denominator in the above calculation will be the number of year and not 3. The following table illustrates the fixation of average Export Obligation (in case a firm/company has applied for EPCG authorizations in the year 2017-18).
