PUBLIC NOTICE NO. 65/2020

DIN 20200578NW00007RD3F8

Subject: Request for Amendments and Waiver of Late Fee Charges in the Bills of Entry through e-mail procedure as facilitation during outbreak of COVID-19 – reg.

(Amendment/Modification in Public Notice No. 35/2020)

Attention of the Importers, Exporters, Customs Brokers and all other stakeholders is invited to the Public Notice No. 35/2020 dated 27.03.2020 on the above mentioned subject. The said Public Notice has provided facility of communicating request for Amendment and Late Fees Waiver on the given email Ids.

2. Review of Data of last one month has demonstrated that this facility has been used extensively by the Trade and, has been proved to be very successful measure in reducing human contact in the Customs process during this COVID crisis. Review has also revealed that these email requests have been attended and the issues resolved in a reasonable time.

2.1 However, it has been noticed that Group mail id (of Gov. domain) provided in this Public Notice are different from the Group mail Ids (@ICEGATE) mentioned in Public Notice No. 25/2020. This is leading to the duplicity of same request on both email ids and the Group ACs/DCs have to open and check inboxes of both email ids which is not only consuming more time but also causing avoidable delay in attending to the requests. Therefore, to avoid duplication and confusion, need of keeping only one email Id is being felt.

2.2 Similarly, request for finalisation of Prior/Advance Bill of Entry (not regularised automatically at the IGM finalisation) are also being sent on Group mail id instead of being sent to EDI Section.

2.3 The review has also indicated that as the requests are being attended and the issues are being resolved by the Group AC/DC in a reasonable time, there is no need to mark each and every mail request to the ADC/JC of the Group as mentioned in para 4 of Public Notice No. 35/2020 dated 27.03.2020. It is felt that only cases of delay should be escalated to supervisory authorities for effective monitoring.

3. In this background, Public Notice No. 35/2020 dated 27.03.2020 is hereby modified as below:

3.1 It has been decided that the request for amendments and waiver of late fee in a bill of entry must be made by sending email to only specified official ICEGATE email IDs of Appraising Groups mentioned below :-
