Subject: Piecemeal Queries  on Bills  of Entries/Shipping Bills by the  field  formations -reg.

            I am directed to say  that the trade has brought to the  notice  of  the Board that assessing officers raise  piecemeal queries  on the Bills  of  Entry/Shipping Bills which eventually delay  the assessments and  clearance  of  the imported/ export  goods.

2.   The matter has  been considered  by the Board and  it has  been  decided that  as  far as possible, officers should   avoid  raising piecemeal queries on Bills  of  Entry/ Shipping Bills. At the   same  time,  where EDI is operational the Systems Manager/Administrators should also  exercise proper check on the number and  nature of  queries raised and  ensure that frivolous queries are avoided.

3. Kindly bring the above instructions to the knowledge of all concerned .

4. Hindi version will follow
