Circular No.ES/170/2018-19 August 24, 2018
To: Members of the Council
Sub.: Dealing with cases, where importer / Customs brokers are submitting multiple DPD intimations (72 hours advance intimations) (sometimes from the different Customs Brokers of the same importer) for the same consignments
We would like to inform you that JNCH Customs (Nhava Sheva) has issued Public Notice No. 126/2018 dated 21st August, 2018 on the above subject.
Your kind attention is invited to the Public Notice No 36/2018, dated 09.03.2018 as amended vide Public Notice No 49/2018, dated 26.03.2018and Public Notice No 115/2018 dated 02.08.2018 regarding “one time default intimation” which is required to be submitted by DPD importers at JNCH for availing Direct Port Delivery (DPD) Facility.
As you are aware, JNCH has introduced the system of “one-time default intimation” to prevent the need to submit 72 hours advance intimation each time and promote DPD and to facilitate DPD importers to avail clearances under DPD and also, to reduce the transaction cost and time.
It has been noticed by the JNCH that in certain cases, importer / Customs brokers are submitting multiple request (sometimes from the different Customs Brokers of the same importer) for the same consignments, which makes it difficult for shipping lines to accept such request.
Now, JNCH has decided the following:
In case of any difficulty, members may kindly contact the Additional / Joint Commissioner in charge of ‘DPD Cell’, NS-III (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Members may kindly make a note of the above.
