Sub.: Dispensing with the requirements of documents being submitted at the time of “Registration” and “Out of Charge” at “DPD/RMS Facilitation Centre” and CFSs in view of implementation of e-sanchit
We would like to inform you that JNCH Customs (Nhava Sheva) has issued Public Notice No. 123/2018 dated 20th August, 2018 on the above subject.
Your kind attention is invited to Public Notice No.162/2017 dated 29.12.2017 as amended by Public Notice No.054/2018 dated 31.03.2018 on the subject of “introduction of e-sanchit at JNCH and the issue of “requirement of hard copy of documents” for Registration and Out of Charge in DPD/RMS facilitation Centre / CFSs.
In this regard, JNCH has observed that Customs Brokers are still producing “docket of B/E along with other supporting import documents” for Registration and Out of Charge and submitting this docket to Customs after obtaining “Out of Charge”. This defeats the very purpose of introducing the e-sanchit facility for moving towards a less-paper environment.
As you may be aware, e-sanchit facility was introduced for moving towards a less-paper environment and hence, all the said import documents forming part of the docket are required to be uploaded in PDF format using e-Sanchit application at ICEGATE.
In view of the above, JNCH has decided that the following-
In case of any difficulty, members may kindly contact the Deputy/Assistant Commissioner in charge of ‘DPD Cell’, NS-III (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Appraising Main (Import), NS-I (email@example.com).
Members may kindly make a note of the above.
