The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) on January 15, 2020, informs that the facility to beneficiaries for uploading of Licenses/Permits/Certificates/Other Authorizations (LPCOs) through e-SANCHIT will be deactivated from January 31, 2020.

The objective of the ‘e-SANCHIT’ application is to further reduce physical interface between Customs/regulatory agencies and the trade and also to increase the speed of clearance in both imports & exports.

Whereas, the facility to upload the LPCOs is now being fully made available to 4 new PGAs (Page 2), the beneficiaries i.e. importer/exporters/customs brokers would not be allowed to upload the previously issued LPCOs on e-SANCHIT with effect from January 31, 2020. Further, to facilitate the members of the trade (beneficiaries), the Participating Government Agencies (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 be uploaded by the PGAs on e-SANCHIT, in order to enable the beneficiary to utilize the same.

The facility of beneficiary uploading these documents through e-SANCHIT will be deactivated from January 31, 2020, beneficiary registration is of utmost importance. Hence, CBIC requests all the formations to reach out to the beneficiaries to ensure that correct email addresses are reflected in the ICEGATE.

Feedback and queries, if any, may be sent by email to [email protected].
