Dear Member,

The Council would like to inform you that JNCH (Nhava Sheva) has issued Public Notice No.28/2018 dated 23.02.2018 on the above subject.

As you may be aware, JNCH had issued Public Notice No. 162/2017 dated 29.12.2017, wherein a facility to upload digitally signed supporting documents concerning bills of entry, was introduced at JNCH on a pilot basis through e-SANCHIT and the importers at JNCH under Mumbai Zone-II were encouraged to use this facility for all their import clearances on voluntary basis.

Now, JNCH has decided the following:

  • To implement this facility on mandatory basis for bills of entry pertaining to Appraising Group IV, VA, VB and 7H w.e.f. 01.03.2018.
  • Importers/ Customs Brokers are also informed that bills of entry pertaining to other Appraising Groups may also be filed by using e-SANCHIT facility on voluntary basis, as use of e-SANCHIT will enhance the speed of import clearance.
  • Other contents of the said Public Notice no. 162/2017 dated 29.12.2017 remain unchanged.

In case of any difficulty, members may kindly contact the Deputy Commissioner of Customs (EDI), JNCH, Nhava Sheva by email to edi@jawaharcustoms.gov.in or Deputy/Assistant Commissioner in charge of Appraising Main (Import), NS-III (email address: appraisingmain.jnch@gov.in )

Members may please make a note of the above

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

S.BALARAJU
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
