PUBLIC NOTICE NO. 93/2019

Subject: Eligibility Criteria for availing of DPD Scheme by Importers– reg.

Attention of the Importers, Custom Brokers, General Trade, officers of JNCH and all other stakeholders is invited to the CBIC Circular No. 29/2019 dated 05.09.2019 providing general guidelines/eligibility criteria for availing DPD Scheme, so that reach of DPD could be made maximized. Importers who have so far not availed the benefit of DPD for reasons including lack of awareness, may now join this program.

2. Some of the reasons like non-receipt of original documents from abroad and consequent delay in issuance of Delivery Order, financial and credit woes, delay in settlement of dues of shipping lines, opening PD Account with the terminals, are inhibiting a larger section of importers to opt for DPD.

3. Taking all the factors into consideration, following guidelines are being prescribed for implementation of DPD.

(i) Inclusions: The following categories of importers may opt for facility of DPD-

(a) importers who have already been accorded either AEO Tier I, II or III status;

(b) importers with a clear track record of compliance and an import volume of 25 Full Container Load (FCL) TEUs through this port in the preceding financial year;

Importers falling under the aforesaid categories shall furnish information prescribed in application format i.e. Annexure-A (copy enclosed). While the criterion at (b) is desirable, Pr. Chief Commissioner of Customs, JNCH may, however, in deserving cases of importers, relax the TEU benchmark. Such importers could be the ones whose imports have enjoyed a consistent pattern of customs risk facilitation/who provide an assurance that they would be in a position to pick up containers directly from the terminal. This dispensation may be particularly considered for the MSME sector.

(ii) Exclusions: The following categories of importers, however, would be excluded from facility of DPD-

(a) importers against whom a case of mis-declaration of description of goods or of concealment/diversion of imported goods/evasion of duty has been made in the preceding five years;

(b) importers facing prosecution proceedings in a matter under the Customs Act, 1962;

(c) those importing goods that are subjected to 100% examination in terms of extant policy;

(d) importers importing mostly LCL consignments.

(iii) Conditions: The facility of DPD shall be extended only to such consignments-

(a) which have either been fully facilitated or not subjected to examination; and

(b) importers open a PD account with the terminals and arrange for their own transport to take delivery of containers from the terminal; and

(c) any other procedural formality prescribed by the zone for better administration of DPD scheme.

5. Difficulties, if any, in the implementation of this Public Notice, may be brought to the knowledge of the undersigned.
