The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) on April 21, 2020, extends the date of implementation of the Circular No. 10/2020-Customs dated February 07, 2020 regarding mandatory electronic sealing for deposit in and removal of goods from Customs Bonded Warehouse.

However, CBIC had in June 2018 decided that radio-frequency identification (RFID) sealing will be required on transparent of goods for deposit in a warehouse as well as removal therefrom. Wherever the ‘Warehousing regulations’ prescribe affixing of a ‘one-rime lock’ the importer or owner of the goods will have to use RFID anti-tamper one-time-locks.

Whereas, CBIC received representation from e-seal vendor to defer the implementation of the circular. Therefore, CBIC decided to defer the implementation of circular till June 30, 2020.
