Utilisation of Morning Hours for Export Cargoes at Nhava Sheva

The following Public Notice was issued by the Commissioner of Customs (Export) Air Cargo Complex, Mumbai on 9th June 2010.

[Customs Public Notice No. 23 dated 9th June 2010]

Sub: Utilisation of the morning and early afternoon for bringing in larger volumes of general export cargoes.

Attention of Exporters, CHAs and Trade is drawn to Public Notice No.13/2010 dt. 19.4.2010 on the above subject.

2.   While analyzing the issue, it came to light that the Custodian (MIAL) was historically issuing tokens for the entry of export vehicles w.e.f. 11.00 a.m. 

3.   This deficiency has now been corrected by MIAL by aligning the timing (for beginning the issuance of tokens for export vehicles carrying general export cargo into the ACC gate) with the Customs Shift beginning at 8 a.m.

4.   Moreover, MIAL will introduce from 10.6.2010 onwards, an incentive in the form of discount of 20% on Terminal Charges for export cargo admitted and cleared by Customs on the same day between 8.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m., which shall be credited to the PDA account of the respective forwarder of the exporter by MIAL.

5.   Exporters, CHAs and Trade are requested to make the fullest utilization of the morning hours.
