CBEC has issued Circular No. 10/2017- Cus dated 30.03.2017 on the above subject.
Ministry of Textiles and Carpet Export Promotion Council (CEPC) has informed the Board that in some cases, Customs field formations had caused damage to the carpets during examination/ inspection of export consignments, resulting in loss of export order as well as financial loss to exports.
