Procedure in relation to delivery of DPD containers from port terminals of

JNCH, Nhava Sheva to CFSs,  if not cleared beyond prescribed 48 Hours period

and under certain other circumstances, Designation of CFSs

 

 
 

 

Dear Members,

 

We would like to inform you that the O/o Office Commissioner of Customs (NS-III), Mumbai Zone-II, Jawaharlal Nehru Custom House, Nhava Sheva has issued Public Notice No. 57/2018 dated  10/04/2018 regarding Procedure in relation to delivery of DPD containers from port terminals of JNCH, Nhava Sheva to CFSs, if not cleared beyond prescribed 48 Hours period and under certain other circumstances, Designation of CFSs.

 

For the sake of convenience of  members, the important points are highlighted/ reproduced as follows:

 

  • Importers availing of Direct Port Delivery (DPD) have been permitted a time limit of 48 hours (from the time of unloading) for clearing the containers from the port terminal of JNPT.  

  • In case an importer is unable to do so within the prescribed time limit of 48 hours the procedure prescribed in PN No. 161/2016 is required to be observed and the container is shifted to the designated CFS.   The designated CFS for subsequent clearance of DPD Containers has already been notified by the Commissioner of Customs (Import) JNCH vide Public Notice No 66/2008, dated 11.09.2008 and M/s. Speedy Multimode Ltd was designated as CFS for the said purpose.

 

  • As per PN, we understand that there has been demand from trade & industry to review the current practice of shifting DPD containers that remain uncleared for 48 hours to a single designated CFS and to allow all CFSs to handle / DPD containers in the circumstances as mentioned in the Public Notice No. 161/2016, dated 28.11.2016.

  • Considering the fact that there is increased compliance and steady growth in the volume and percentage of containers being cleared under DPD, it has been decided that Port Terminals in the following situations should henceforth transfer the container to any CFS as nominated by the shipping line instead of the designated CFS:

 

  • Consignment is not cleared within 48 hours from port terminal in respect of DPD Clients (RMS Facilitated);

  • Damaged containers or those with tampered seals; In case of any confusion, Deputy / Assistant Commissioner in charge of DPD Cell, NSIII may be contacted for clarity.

  • However, in case the importer requests for change of CFS, this may be considered by Additional / Joint Commissioner in-charge of ‘RMS Facilitation Centre’ on case to case basis. In this regard request (along with reason for not clearing the goods within the prescribed 48 hours) should be sent through email and approval / rejection, as the case may be, also communicated through reply email to ensure that there is no delay [in the similar manner as prescribed vide Public Notice No 110/2017, dated 29.08.2017].

 

  • It shall be duty of shipping lines and the CFS concerned to inform the importer / Customs Broker about shifting of such DPD containers, through e-mail address (as available in the intimation submitted to shipping lines) and also through SMS (in case the importer’s mobile no. is available with them).

  • Additional time limit as provided vide Public Notice No. 110/2017, dated 29.08.2017 (available in certain unavoidable situations such as: system issues, IGM not finalized within normal period etc.) will continue to be available. Similarly, facility of moving containers to preferred CFS (in case of Non RMS consignment or CSD hold consignment) as provided vide Public Notice No 43/2017 dated 31.03.2017 will also continue to be available. 

 

  • The revised procedure would be applicable from 20th  April 2018.

In case of any difficulty, the specific issue may be brought to the notice of Additional Commissioner in charge of ‘DPD Cell’, NS-III (email address: dpd.amijnch@gmail.com). The council may also be informed on e-mail id:  deepak.gupta@chemexcil.gov.in & balani.lic@chemexcil.gov.in .

 

Members are requested to take note of this facility.   The above said PN is available for reference /download using below link-

 

 

Thanking You,



Yours faithfully,
