Sub.: Pilot Implementation of Paperless processing under SWIFT-uploading of supporting documents (eSANCHIT) in Exports

Dear Member,

We would like to inform you that CBIC has issued Circular No. 29/2018- Customs dated 30th August, 2018 regarding the pilot Implementation of Paperless processing under SWIFT-uploading of supporting documents (eSANCHIT) in Exports

As you may be aware, the implementation of Paperless Processing/ eSANCHIT under Single Window Interface for facilitation of Trade in case of Imports has been successful.

Now, in order to reduce physical interface between Customs/ regulatory agencies and the trade and also, to increase the speed of clearance in Exports, CBIC has proposed to introduce a facility to upload digitally signed supporting documents on a pilot basis at Air Cargo Complex, New Delhi and Chennai Customs House.

In this regard, members may kindly make a note of the following:

  • This pilot base facility will cover all types of exports under Indian Customs EDI System (ICES).
  • After the completion of the pilot, the facility will be extended to all ICES locations.
  • On a voluntary basis, members of trade may use this facility to upload the supporting documents such as Shipping Bills that may be filed on or after 01st September, 2018. After 15 days of the launch of the facility, a review will be carried out, and thereafter, it will be introduced as a mandatory requirement.
  • CBIC has prescribed procedures for this pilot bases purpose.
  • References may be sent to the Commissioner (Single Window), HUDCO Vishala Building, B- Wing, Bhikaji Cama Place, R. K. Puram, New Delhi- 110066.

For more information regarding procedures, members may kindly refer to Circular No. 29/2018- Customs dated 30th August, 2018.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

S. BALARAJU
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
