The Central Board of Indirect Taxes (CBIC) on July 16, 2019, has brought onboard eSANCHIT platform 16 more Participating Government Agencies (PGAs) with their Licenses/Permits/Certificates/Other Authorizations (LPCOs).

‘eSANCHIT’ application is successfully in operation since April 01, 2018 with the objective of further reducing physical interface between Customs/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.

Further, the Council of Leather Export which is already onboard will also start uploading their remaining LPCO namely Certificate of Import Clearance for Textile and Textile Articles.

Since the facility to upload the LPCOs is now being fully made available to these 16 new PGAs, therefore, the beneficiaries would not be allowed to upload the previously issued LPCOs on eSANCHIT with effect from August 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 above cut-off date. Any LPCOs issued on a prior date may also e uploaded by the PGAs on eSANCHIT, in order to enable the beneficiary to utilize the same.

Since the facility of beneficiary uploading these documents through eSANCHIT will be deactivated from August 01, 2019. Hence, all the formations are requested to reach out to the beneficiaries to ensure that correct email addresses are reflected in the ICEGATE.
