Under EPCG scheme, the capital goods imported are subject to actual user condition and the goods imported cannot be transferred or sold till the fulfillment of export obligation.

The EPCG Authorization specifies the value,quantity or both of resultant export product to be exported against it. In the case of manufacturer,merchant or service exporters, such export obligation is required to be fulfilled by exporting goods manufactured or capable of being manufactured or services rendered by the use of capital goods imported under the scheme.
After the introduction of Export Promotion Capital Goods scheme by Foreign Trade Policy and subsequent amendments and supplements ordered in different circulars till 18th January, 2011, the EPCG Authorization holder is required to file a bond with or without bank guarantee with the Customs prior to commencement of import of capital goods.
