CBEC Extends 24x7 Customs Clearance Facility for Export Cargo from 1ST July, 2013

Beginning 1st July, 2013, Customs clearance of all export goods will take place on 24x7 basis from four major Air Cargo Complexes/airports i.e., Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai. Thus, all exports including those made under export incentives scheme as well as duty drawback scheme will now be able to be move out of the country on 24x7 basis. Government expects this initiative to greatly facilitate the exporting community and boost the country’s export by reducing dwell time and enabling exporters to meet their deadlines.

The expansion of the 24x7 facility at the four major Air Cargo Complexes/Airports follows closely on the heels of similar customs clearance facility for exports made under Free Shipping Bills i.e. without claiming export incentives with effect from (w.e.f.) 1st June, 2013 from all thirteen (13) EDI connected Air Cargo Complexes/Airports in the country. These 13 Air Cargo Complexes/Airports are Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Cochin, Calicut, Coimbatore, Goa, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kolkata, Nashik, Vishakhapatnam and Thiruvananthapuram.

The extension of 24x7 customs clearance facility for imports and exports has been under consideration of Government for some time. Thus, last year w.e.f. 1st September, 2012, the customs began functioning on 24x7 basis to clear select export consignments under Free Shipping Bills as well as identified import consignments which were facilitated by its Electronic Risk Assessment System. This was begun on pilot basis at four ports i.e. Chennai, JNPT, Kolkata and Kandla and four airports i.e., Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai. The facility was welcomed by the trade and industry which appreciated the fact that the customs had taken this step to facilitate exports despite facing serious staff constraints. The present expansion of the 24x7 customs clearance facility to all exports from identified customs stations addresses the requirement of exporters who export under export incentive schemes and would allow them to exploit their full potential.
