In order to ensure that all amendment applications are disposed off within specified time limits, it is desired that all minor amendments are approved on the same day of the submission of complete application along with all the required documents. For EDI sites, the electronic request for amendment should be made prior to approaching the officer with the documents. Further, in order to decentralise the minor amendment process, necessary changes have been carried out in the notification No. 40/2012-Customs (N.T.) dated 2.5.12 by notifying Superintendent of Customs and Central Excise or Appraiser as proper officer for Section 30 (minor amendments). Since the proper officer for purposes of Section 30 would henceforth be Superintendent rank officer or Appraiser (minor amendments), therefore, consequent changes in respect of notifying the proper officer for purposes of Section 149 have also been carried out.
