Sub:  Alignment of State Codes of ICES with Goods and Service Tax Network (GSTN)- Implementation of changes in Indian Custom EDI System  (ICES)

Dear Member,

JNCH (Nhava Sheva) has issued Public Notice No. 74/2017 dated 13.06.2017  on the above subject.

Currently, ICES, State Codes are maintained as per RBI list, and is used being for declaration in Bill of Entry and Shipping Bills for various purposes.

As an initial step towards GST implementation,

  • The state codes are being aligned with Census Codes, the ones used for GST purposes. (The list of State code is given in Annexure -I. NIC).
  • RES package has already been modified to reflect this change.
  • This change is proposed to be implemented from 14.06.2017.

In view of the above, members are advised to make note of the changes and declare the new code to avoid declaration at ICEGATE end.

For more information, members may kindly contact the System Manager /ADC (EDI), JNCH or nsm.ices@icegate.gov.in.

Thanking you,

V.ANIL KUMAR
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
