F. No.S/22-Gen-402/2017-18/AM (I)/JNCH

Date: 11.12.2018


Subject: – Operationalization of “one-time default intimation” to Shipping Lines by DPD importers at JNCH -Reg.


Attention of the Importers, Exporters, General Trade, Port Terminal Operator, Shipping Lines / Shipping Agents, CFSs coming under the jurisdiction of Jawaharlal Nehru Customs House (JNCH), Nhava Sheva and all other stakeholders is invited to the Public Notice No 36/2018, dated 09.03.2018 and Public Notice No. 49/2018 dated 26.03.2018 wherein procedure related to submission of “one-time default intimation” by the DPD importers to the DPD cell, JNCH has been provided.

2. The Public Notice No 36/2018, dated 09.03.2018 stipulates that the “one time default intimation” by the DPD importers to the DPD cell, JNCH is to be shared with the shipping lines through the CSLA  [] so that the default stacking code indicated in the said “intimation” can be treated as default stacking code by the shipping lines.

3. Various instances have been reported by the DPD importers wherein shipping lines were found to be moving the DPD containers to the CFSs of their own preference & not in accordance with the “default stacking code” shared to them through the CSLA. Movement of DPD containers to the CFSs other than the choice of the DPD importers may result in extra cost to the DPD importers and also delay in clearance.

3.1 When enquired about, most of the shipping lines claimed that they had not received the one-time default intimation on time. To avoid this kind of repeated non- compliance, it has been decided to discontinue with the present practice of sharing the one-time default intimation every time to the shipping lines through the CLSA. Now, it will be incumbent upon the shipping lines to move the containers as per the “one time default intimation details” published on the website of Jawaharlal Nehru Customs House {i.e. }.The officers posted at DPD Cell, JNCH have been advised to keep the “said information above” published on the website updated at least on weekly basis.

4. It is, therefore, made incumbent on the consignees availing this facility to check information placed on JNCH website regularly to ensure that their names and details appear correctly on the website, so as to enable the Shipping Lines in turn to manifest their cargo correctly, as DPD+ DPD or DPD + CFS, as the case may be.

5. Shipping Lines should be guided by the names and details such as Common DPD code, IEC, choice of stacking code of the DPD importers as updated on the JNCH website. CSLA will no longer be the contact point for sending ‘One Time Default Intimation’ mails to the Shipping Lines.

6. The Public Notice No 36/2018 dated 09.03.2018 and Public Notice No. 49/2018 dated 26.03.2018 issued earlier on the same subject stands amended to the above mentioned effect.
