CBIC provide the facility to PGAs to upload the LPCOs

Jun 05, 2019 | by Avantis RegTech Legal Research Team

The Central Board of Indirect taxes and Customs (CBIC) on June 03, 2019, has informed that the facility to upload the Licenses or Permits or Certificates or other Authorizations (LPCOs) is available to the Participating Government Agencies (PGAs).

However, ‘eSANCHIT’ application is successfully in operation since April 01, 2018. Further with the objective of further reducing physical interface between Customs or regulatory agencies and the trade and to increase the speed of clearance in both imports and exports, a facility to upload digitally signed LPCOs by PGAs on eSANCHIT at all ICES locations across India was introduced from November 16, 2018 vide Circular No. 44/2018-Cus dated November 13, 2018.

Since the facility to upload the LPCOs is fully made available to PGAs, therefore, the beneficiaries that are importers or exporters or customs brokers would not be allowed to upload the previously issued LPCOs on eSANCHIT with effect from July 01, 2019. Further, to facilitate the members of the trade, the PGAs are required to upload the LPCOs issued by them during the last 15 days from July 01, 2019. Any LPCOs issued a prior date may also be uploaded by the PGAs on eSANCHIT, in order to enable the beneficiary to utilize the same.
