Govt issues directives to enhance ease of doing business for importers and exporters

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.
