To: Members of the Council
Sub: Streamlining of Export Procedures
Sahar Air Cargo Customs has issued Public Notice No.35/2017 dated 24.08.2017 regarding streamlining of existing export procedures.
As you are aware, the Board (CBEC) vide Circular No. 55/2016 dated 23.11.2016 has emphasized the need for reducing/eliminating print outs in Custom Clearance. The circular has eliminated printing of Exchange Control Copy and Export Promotion Copy of the Shipping Bills and has decided to print only two copies of Shipping Bill namely Customs Copy and Exporter’s Copy.
It has been represented that Exporter’s Copy is being retained by Airlines and Custodians for clearance and is finally submitted to the Customs as a result of which the exporters are left with no copy of Shipping Bill.
In this connection, to streamline the export clearance procedure in view of the above changes & difficulties, procedure for clearance of Export Cargo is prescribed in the above mentioned Public Notice No.35/2017 dated 24.08.2017. These procedures will come into immediate effect.
This is for your information.
