Overview

Exchange Earners Foreign Currency Account

Exchange Earners Foreign Currency Account
Indian exports have surged over the last decade owing to an unprecedented boom in sectors like software, biotechnology, gems, jewellery, textiles etc. As a result of this, the volume of inward remittances has also increased significantly. To shield the firms engaged in regular export and import from the exchange rate fluctuations, RBI has allowed parking of foreign currency by exporters in an account designated as Exchange Earners Foreign Currency Account (EEFC).

Currently, EEFC deposits are in the form of a current account and do not attract any interest earning.
