Implementation of PGA eSANCHIT- Paperless Processing under SWIFT-Uploading of Licenses/ Permits/ Certificates/ Other Authorizations (LPCOs) by PGAs

Circular No.ES/105/2019-20                                                         August 1, 2019          

To: Members of the Council              

Sub.:     Implementation of PGA eSANCHIT- Paperless Processing under SWIFT-Uploading of Licenses/ Permits/ Certificates/ Other Authorizations (LPCOs) by PGAs                   

Dear Member,

CBIC has issued Circular No.19/2019 – Customs dated 16th July, 2019 informing about implementation of PGA eSANCHIT, a Paperless Processing under SWIFT by Uploading of Licenses/Permits/ Certificates/Other Authorizations (LPCOs) by PGAs. 

In this regard, kindly refer to Council’s earlier Circular No.ES/61/2019-20 dated June 4, 2019  in which CBIC had issued  Circular No.13/2019-Customs dated 3rd June, 2019 informing about 23 PGAs that were enabled for uploading their LPCOs on eSANCHIT.

Now, 16 more PGAs with their LPCOs as detailed in the Annexure- 1 are being brought onboard eSANCHIT platform. The total number of PGAs brought on Board becomes 43 as on date.

Please note the following –

  • Since the facility to upload the LPCOs is now being fully made available to the new 16 PGAs, therefore, the beneficiaries i.e. importers/exporters/customs brokers would not be allowed to upload the previously issued LPCOs on eSANCHIT w.e.f. 01/08/2019. Further, to facilitate the members of the trade (beneficiaries), the PGAs are required to upload the LPCOs issued by them during the last 15 days from the above cut-off date. Any LPCOs issued on a prior date may also be uploaded by the PGAs on eSANCHIT, in order to enable the beneficiary to utilize the same.

  • ·PGAs will be communicating with the beneficiaries through the email address registered in the ICEGATE.

  • Simplified auto registration process in ICEGATE has been introduced by the Board based on email ids already provided by them for registration under GST without the use of digital signatures for limited purposes of eSANCHIT and the Unique Image Reference Number (IRNs) will be communicated to such email ids.

In case of any difficulty, members may kindly contact the Icegate Helpdesk at icegatehelpdesk@icegate.gov.in.

Members may kindly make a note of the above.

Thanking you,            

Yours faithfully,
