Sub: Facilitation of clearance of import containers due to delay in receiving of documents from China

 

Dear Member,

We would like to inform you that JNCH has issued Public Notice No. 24/2020 dated 20th February, 2020 regarding facilitation of clearance of import containers due to delay in receiving of documents from China.

It may be informed that post outbreak of Corona Virus there is likelihood of import containers arriving from China being stranded in the Port/ Container Freight Station (CFSs) on account of non-receipt of basic import documents by the Indian consignees, resulting in late filing of Bills of Entry.

Keeping in view the emergency due to outbreak of Corona Virus in China and in order to facilitate clearance of the consignments, it has been decided by JNCH in the public interest that the Bills of Entry filed late for clearance of import consignments from China will not attract any late fee charges based on a letter submitted by the importer/Custom Broker that the delay in filing the Bill of Entry was on account of non-receipt of documents from China.

Members may kindly take a note of the above details.

 

Thanks n regards,

Sanjeev Kr Sharma
