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

Dear Member,

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:

  1. DPD Importer / Customs broker, who have not yet submitted the said “one-time default intimation”, are advised to submit the same preferably electronically, in the manner as provided vide Public Notices as mentioned in Para 1 this Public Notice.
  2. DPD Importer / Customs broker are advised not to submit more than one request for one consignment.
  3. In case, where more than one specific request / intimation is submitted in respect of any consignment, shipping lines may only consider first request and ignore subsequent requests, even though submitted 72 hours in advance.
  4. Shipping lines should intimate the details of such multiple intimations to Customs (email address: dpd.amijnch@gmail.com).

In case of any difficulty, members may kindly contact the Additional / Joint Commissioner in charge of ‘DPD Cell’, NS-III (dpd.amijnch@gmail.com).

Members may kindly make a note of the above.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

S. BALARAJU
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
