Dear Member,

The Council would like to inform you that Sahar Air Cargo Complex (ACC) has issued Public Notice No.56/2018 dated March 3, 2018 regarding the above subject.

Your kind attention is invited to the Public Notice 47/2017 dated December 22, 2017 issued by Sahar Air Cargo, wherein a facility to upload digitally signed supporting documents concerning Bills of Entry, was introduced at ACC on a pilot basis through e-SANCHIT.

Now, the following has been decided by the Air Cargo Complex;

  • It shall be obligatory to upload the supporting documents through e-SANCHIT facility for all the Bills of Entry filed in Import and Export Commissionerates at ACC, Mumbai w.e.f. March 15, 2018.
  • Step by step procedure for electronic document uploading is attached herewith and is also available on ACC, Mumbai website at the following link:

  • When a Bill of Entry is filed by using e-SANCHIT facility, hard copy of uploaded documents will not be insisted by Assessing Officers. Hard copies of additional documents required during assessment should be uploaded through e-SANCHIT as per procedure outlined in the CBEC Circular No.40/2017 dated October 13, 2017.
  • Certain documents/ Certificates in original (for example - Certificates of Origin, Duty Exemption Certificates, etc.) are required to be mandatorily verified at the time of assessment and/or clearance stage, as the case may be. However even such documents must be uploaded on e-SANCHIT before clearance.

In case of any difficulty, members may kindly contact Asst./Deputy Commissioner of Customs (EDI), ACC, Mumbai, by email or the Deputy/Assistant Commissioner in charge of P.R.O. (Import) ACC Sahar, Mumbai (emails address: - proaccsahar@gamil.com)

Members may kindly make a note of the above.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

S.BALARAJU
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
