F.No.S/43-494/2017-18 PSO JNCH
Date :- 08.03.2018
PUBLIC NOTICE – 35/2018
Subject :- Issuance of Form E-13 before LEO for Export Containers in JNCH– reg.
Attention of all the exporters, and stakeholders is invited to the various Public/Facility Notices issued by Jawaharlal Nehru Custom House (JNCH) about the procedure with regard to Export of Containers through various Parking Plazas. Representations have been received from Exporters for clarification whether the furnishing of Form E-13 is mandatory for the purpose of issuance of LEO. Hence, this Public Notice is being issued regarding ‘Issuance of Form E-13’ for further streamlining the procedure of Export in Parking Plaza.
2. In this regard, a meeting with all the stakeholders was called on 19.02.2018 at JNCH chaired by Commissioner(G), JNCH and it was decided that at the time of entry of Export containers in the Parking Plaza, Exporters/CHAs are not required to produce the Form E-13. However, it is to be produced mandatorily after the registration process and before the issuance of LEO. Hence, Form E-13 would be a prerequisite for the issuance of LEO. This practice is aimed at ensuring that the containers move directly to the port terminal after LEO generation. Movement of Containers/TTs for export should be planned by Exporters in such a way that they reach the port at the closest possible date of vessel shutout with some additional time to avoid the eleventh hour rush.
3. The same procedure as described in Para 2 above would be applicable to Refrigerated and Containers containing Perishable Cargo also. The other provisions for export of such containers have been specified in Public Notice No. 35/2017 dated 17.03.2017.
4. In case of any difficulty, the specific issue may be brought to the notice of DC(PG), JNCH. Action to be taken in terms of this Public Notice should be considered as Standing Order for the purpose of Officers and staff of JNCH.
5. This issues with the approval of Chief Commissioner of Customs, Zone II, JNCH.
