Advise to exporters to promptly check shipping bill transmission status on ICEGATE and DGFT website

Circular No.ES/291/2017-18                                                                      February 07, 2018

To: Members of the Council

Sub: Advise to exporters to promptly check shipping bill transmission status on ICEGATE and DGFT website

Dear Member,

DGFT has issued Trade Notice No.23/2018 dated 06.02.2018 advising the exporters to promptly check shipping bill transmission status on ICEGATE and DGFT website.

The Directorate has noticed that when exporters login into DGFT System for MEIS application, sometimes Shipping Bill data is not found available in DGFT System. It takes considerable time to get the Shipping Bill data available in DGFT System and, therefore, availing of FTP benefits, like MEIS, by exporter is delayed.

The Shipping Bill data is transmitted from Customs Port Offices to ICEGATE server and subsequently to DGFT server.

To overcome this issue, exporters are advised to follow the given below steps:-

  • Check the Shipping Bill transmission status first on ICEGATE and then on DGFT website after 72 hours from integration of Shipping Bill with ICEGATE..
  • If the Shipping Bill data is not available on ICEGATE or DGFT, the issue should be reported to the concerned authorities.
  • The issue can be registered with DGFT in the Contact@DGFT service available on DGFT website and the issue details can be shared with DGFT EDI helpdesk by sending an e-mail at dgftedi@nic.in quoting the Contact@DGFT reference number.
  • The transmission status of a Shipping Bill can be checked on ICEGATE website (https://www.icegate.gov.in/) under `Services->Public Enquiry-> DGFT Shipping Bill Integration Status’ option and the same can be checked at DGFT website (http://dgft.gov.in/) under ‘User Facilitation-> Shipping Bills Received from Customs’ for an IEC option.

Members may kindly make a note of the above.

Thanking You,

Yours faithfully,

S.BALARAJU
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
