SubExtension of deadline for mandatory uploading of supporting documents under SWIFT

Dear Member,

We are pleased to inform you that Air Cargo Complex (Sahar) has issued Public Notice  No. 57/2018 regarding extension of deadline for mandatory uploading of supporting documents under SWIFT to 01st April, 2018  instead of 15th March, 2018.

As you may be aware, it was mandatory to upload the supporting documents through e-SANCHIT facility for all the Bills of Entry filed at Customs w.e.f. 15th March, 2018.

In this regard, members of Trade had expressed their difficulties and hence, Board has decided the following-

  • To postpone the mandatory implementation of e-SANCHIT to 01st April, 2018. 
  • No physical document will be accepted from 01st April, 2018.   
  • There will be no further extension.
  • After 01st April, 2018, the system would simply disallow the filing of a bill of entry unless it is filed with the Image Reference Number (IRN Nos.) evidencing that supporting documents has been first uploaded using e- SANCHIT.

Also, Mumbai Customs has issued Public Notice No. 48/2018 dated 22nd March, 2018 and Public Notice No. 49/2018 dated 23rd March, 2018 on the same subject.

Members may kindly make a note of the above.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

S. BALARAJU
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
