D.O. No. 354/254/2018-TRU
My Dear Colleagues,
Subject: Release of Cashew Kernels at incorrect tariff rate-reg.
Please refer to notification No. 25/2019-Cus dated 6th July 2019 wherein the BCD rate on Cashew Kernel broken [0801 32 10], Cashew kernel whole [0801 32 20] and others [0801 32 90] was increased to the tariff rate which is 70%. However, due to an inadvertent error in the ICEGATE system, the tariff rate on the above goods is reflecting to be 30% which is incorrect. Accordingly, it is directed that necessary measures may be taken immediately, to protect the revenue.
With warm regards
(Dr John Joseph)
Pr. Chief Commissioners/ Chief Commissioners,
All Custom Zones
Copy to DG Systems: to rectify the tariff rate in ICEGATE and to report as to how many consignments have been cleared at lower rate of duty.
