General Waiver of penalty for late filing of Bill of Entry due to the ICES being for DR Drill and Maintenance

Circular No.ES/39/2022-23                                                     30th June, 2022      

  

To: Members of the Council         

  

Sub: General Waiver of penalty for late filing of Bill of Entry due to the ICES being for DR Drill and Maintenance  

 

Dear Member,       

 

JNCH has issued Public Notice No. 35/2022-23 dated 29th June, 2022 on the above subject. 

 

As per Advisory No. 11/2022 dtd. 22.6.2022 issued by DG Systems for Disaster Recovery Drill, from 24th to 26th June, 2022, filing of Bill of Entry at Service Centers and through RES (Remote EDI System) was stopped at 22:00 hours on 24th June, 2022. Though ICES (Indian Customs EDI System) was functioning intermittently on 25th June, 2022, members of Trade faced difficulty in filing the Bills of Entry, on time, on that day. 

 

As a measure of trade facilitation, JNCH has now decided that –   

  • “Late fee’ imposable in terms of Bill of Entry (Forms) Amendment Regulation, 2017 vide Notification No. 27/2017-Cus. (NT) dtd. 31st March, 2017 will not be collected for 25th and 26th June, 2022, if a Bill of Entry could not be filed on these days.  
  • This waiver however is subject to submission of negative acknowledgment/ proof of non-generation of Bill of Entry Number. 

 

Members may kindly make a note of the above. 

 

Thanking you,                        

 

Yours faithfully,
