We wish to draw your kind attention to Council’s earlier Circular No.ES/183/2018-19 dated August 31, 2018 wherein CBIC had issued Circular No. 29/2018- Customs dated 30th August, 2018 introducing a facility to upload digitally signed supporting documents on a pilot basis at Air Cargo Complex, New Delhi and Chennai Customs House, and members of trade were allowed to use this facility to upload the supporting documents such as Shipping Bills that may be filed on or after 01st September, 2018 on voluntary basis.
Now, CBIC has extended the above facility to all ICES locations on PAN India basis for all types of exports under ICES vide Circular No. 43/2018- Customs dated 8th November, 2018. On voluntary basis, members of trade may use this facility to upload the supporting documents concerning Shipping bills that may be filed w.e.f. 8th November, 2018.
The procedure for eSANCHIT in exports is similar to the one prescribed for eSANCHIT in imports vide Circular No. 40/2017 dated 13th October, 2017.
For more information regarding procedures for uploading supporting documents on ICEGATE, members may kindly refer to Circular No. 43/2018- Customs dated 8th November, 2018.
