With the objective of further reducing physical interface between Customs / regulatory agencies and the trade and to increase the speed of clearance in both imports & exports, a facility to upload digitally signed Licenses / Permits / Certificates / Other Authorizations (LPCOs) by Participating Government Agencies (PGAs), eSANCHIT was introduced at all ICES locations across India from 16th November, 2018.
Kind attention is invited to CBIC’s Circular No.44/2018-Cus. dated 13.11.2018, Circular No.13/2019-Cus. dated 3.6.2019, Circular No.19/2019-Cus dated 16.07.2019, Circular No 03/2020-Customs dated 15th January, 2020 through which already 47 PGAs have been enabled for uploading their LPCOs on eSANCHIT.
