Client Advisory - Sea Cargo Manifest and Transshipment Regulations, 2018 - Regulatory Changes - India 2018-10-24

Dear Valued Customer,

Please note, the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Custom (CBIC) notification No. 38/2018, has made changes in the regulations for filing Sea Cargo Manifest for import, export and transshipment cargo as per below announcement effective November 1, 2018 (postponed from August 1, 2018).
 
We would like to emphasize the key highlights of the new regulation, which makes it compulsory for shipping lines, forwarders, exporters and importers to adhere to the defined timelines for the cargo manifestation for imports arriving in India, for exports out of India, and for transshipment via Indian Ports.
 
Imports to India: We are required to submit import manifest details to Indian Customs prior to vessel departure from last port of call before calling India, for all containers which are going to discharge at any port in India, or are discharged for transshipment at any of the ports in India. To adhere to these timelines we request our customers provide details of House B/L, 5 days before vessel calling the last port of call before India and details such as Container Freight Station (CFS) nomination, direct port delivery intimation, shipment parties details and all other manifest details must be provided 3 days before vessel calling the last port of call before India.
 
Exports from India: We are required to submit export manifest details to Indian Customs prior sailing of vessel from India port of loading, for all containers which are loaded on a said vessel from India. To adhere to these timelines, we request our customers to submit the original shipping bill with Let Export Order (LEO) to C.H. Robinson local office at least 48 hours prior to the estimated time of arrival (ETA) of the vessel. For shipments originating from Inland Container Depot (ICD), the shipping bill / transshipment receipt (TR) with LEO should be submitted 24 hours prior to loading of containers on train/truck at ICD.

Thank you for being our Valued Customer. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Milgram-C.H. Robinson for further information.
