Sub.: Eligibility Criteria for availing of DPD Scheme by Importer
JNCH has issued Public Notice No. 93/2019 dated 11th October, 2019 regarding the eligibility criteria for availing of Direct Port Delivery (DPD) Scheme by an importer.
Your kind attention is invited to the CBIC Circular No. 29/2019 dated 05th September, 2019 providing general guidelines/eligibility criteria for availing DPD Scheme, so that reach of DPD could be made maximized. Importers who have so far not availed the benefit of DPD for reasons including lack of awareness, may now join this program.
Reasons like non-receipt of original documents from abroad and consequent delay in issuance of Delivery Order, financial and credit woes, delay in settlement of dues of shipping lines, opening PD Account with the terminals, are inhibiting a larger section of importers to opt for DPD.
In view of the above, JNCH has issued guidelines for implementation of DPD.
Members may kindly make a note of the above & follow the guidelines as prescribed in the Public Notice No. 92/2019.
