Sub.: Guidelines on reply to query regarding producing / debiting of original document
We would like to inform you that JNCH (Nhava Sheva) has issued Public Notice No.36/2019 dated 23rd April, 2019 informing about the guidelines on reply to queries regarding producing / debiting of original document.
JNCH Customs has noticed that in Bills of Entry where query has been raised by the ‘Out of Charge’ officer for production / debiting on original certificate / documents like duty exemption certificate, procurement certificate, Narcotics Control Bureau certificate, Central Insecticide Board certificate, etc., the reply to the query is submitted without ensuring submission of original copy of such documents to the proper officer for verification / debiting. This causes the B/E to come on screen of the OoC officer without the officer having the original documents, thereby necessitating raising of another query.
Now, JNCH Customs has directed the following guidelines to importers / Customs brokers –
In case of any difficulty, members may kindly contact the Additional Commissioner / Deputy Commissioner, RMS Facilitation Centre, JNCH.
