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

Dear Member,

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-

  • ·Customs Officials in Direct Port Delivery (DPD)/ Risk Management System (RMS) facilitation Centre and CFSs under JNCH should follow e-Sanchit procedure stated in the Public Notice No.162/2017 dated 29.12.2017 and to register Bill of Entries on presentation of “only hard copy of examination order” and give “Out of Charge” after “scrutiny and check” of “uploaded documents under e-sanchit.

  • However, where supporting documents like Country of Origin Certificate etc. are required to be presented in original for verification and/or debiting, trade should present hard copies at the time of examination of the goods at Container Freight Stations (CFSs) or registration at RMS facilitation centre for obtaining Out of Charge.
  • The trade must upload digitally all the document including those that has to be presented in original hard copy.
  • Further for supporting documents, where a debit of quantity/value is required to be made on the hard copy for every subsequent bill of entry filed for import, the latest debit sheet should be uploaded.
  • The practice of submitting hard/paper copies of documents constituting the “docket” shall be dis-continued with immediate effect.

In case of any difficulty, members may kindly contact the Deputy/Assistant Commissioner in charge of ‘DPD Cell’, NS-III (dpd.amijnch@gmail.com) or Appraising Main (Import), NS-I (appraisingmain.jnch@gov.in).

Members may kindly make a note of the above.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

S. BALARAJU
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
