New Delhi:

Ministry of Finance has issued several instructions to enhance ease of doing business for importers and exporters. In the latest directive, government has stressed on reducing and eliminating physical print-outs for custom clearance.

Now, Importers and exporters will not be required to submit paper documents such as GAR-7 Forms/TR-6 Challans & Trans-shipment Permit (TP) for business purposes.

These instructions will become operational from December 1, 2016. Government has asked all Customs Houses at Ports, Air Cargo Complex Inland Container Depot & CFCs to issue Public Notice in this regard.

These steps will also help the importers and exporters to move towards paper- free environment and electronic messaging as advocated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
