JNCH
Mandatory declaration of GSTIN, IEC and email address of importer in the Bills of Lading obtained from foreign supplier/ shipper

Dear Members,

Kindly note that  O/o JNCH (Nhava Sheva-III)  has issued  Public Notice no. 33/2018 dated 07/03/2018 regarding  Mandatory declaration of GSTIN, IEC and email address of importer in the Bills of Lading obtained from  foreign supplier/ shipper.

We understand from the Public Notice that their are concerns  about the genuineness of  certain  importers and also some un-cleared Hazardous wastes causing potential environmental hazards.

Further, in order to give further impetus to Direct Port Delivery (DPD), it has been decided to gradually do away with consignment wise DPD intimation (72 hours advance intimation being submitted by importer in respect of each consignment to shipping lines) with one time default intimation. In order to operationalize this procedure, it is essential to capture basic details of importer in the Bill of lading itself so that such details can be used to decide DPD stacking code and for various other purposes.

In  view of above and to ensure that such basic details of importers in India are captured by shipping lines at the time of booking of such consignments at the stage of bill of lading” stage and to further speed up the import declaration processing and clearance, following guidelines are  proposed as per  Public Notice no. 33/2018 dated  07/03/2018:

i. Importers are required to ensure that following basic details are informed to their exporters/ suppliers  abroad so that these details are incorporated in the bills of lading issued at the time of booking of such consignments.

Ø Import & export Code (IEC) of importer;  

Ø GST Identification No (GSTIN) of importer;

Ø Official email id of importer (to be used for correspondence by shipping lines and Customs).

ii. Shipping lines operating / functioning at Nhava Sheva are also required to ensure that they obtain such details from suppliers/exporters abroad, if such consignments are to be discharged at Nhava Sheva (JNPCT or GTI or NSICT / NSIGT or BMCTP terminals) and indicate the same in the IAL submitted to the Terminal.

iii. Further, such details may be used by shipping lines for informing the stacking code of the container to the importer.

Direction to Importers / Customs Brokers:

Importers/ Customs Brokers are required to ensure that the said requirements are complied with.

The revised requirement for imports at Nhava Sheva Port and shipping lines as mentioned in Para 3 above would be applicable from 1st April 2018 (i.e. all bills of lading issued on or after 1st April 2018 should contain aforesaid additional details).

Members who are importing  are requested to take note of this requirement from JNCH (Nhava Sheva) and do the needful.   Members importing through other ports may also inform their logistics provider/ CHAs  and check with local custom houses to avoid any issues later on.
