    1. That would be the regional DGFT office's authority to whom you are applying for the issue of IEC. Examples: Office of the Joint Director General of Foreign Trade, Pune; Office of the Additional Director General of Foreign Trade, Mumbai, etc.

      You can find the names and address in the DGFT website. Check here https://dgft.gov.in/CP/?opt=dgft-map

    2. Thanks for the information. But in which regional DGFT authority I should apply? My firm is registered in Maharashtra but I live in other state. Which office should I apply?

    3. Apply in Maharashtra. But there are 2-3 DGFT offices in the state. If your firm is not in Mumbai, then apply to Pune office. Check the link given in my previous comment to get the name and address.
