|STANDING ORDER No. 02/2016|
Attention of Steamer Agents, Importers, Exporters, Custom House Agents and all Trade Interests is invited to the Public Notice No 27/2007 dated 14.06.2015, regarding levy of Merchant Overtime (MOT) fees for rendering services by the Customs Officers beyond the normal working hours or at a place beyond the Customs Area, wherein it was decided that the Customs Officers posted at the particular CFS, who has to attend the job will be nominated by DC i/c of the concerned CFS through the Preventive Service Office.
In case of non-availability of staff with DC/ CFS, a request would be made to DC/ P(G) who will nominate the officer from Custom House and communicate to the officer through PSO. For all other assignments to be carried out at places other than CFS, the applicant or authorized agent would approach DC/P(G) through PSO for nominating the officer and the Posting Section would depute the officer after ensuring the availability of the officer for overtime duty.
The party would pay the overtime charges at Cash Dept, 1st floor, JNCH, only after the nomination of officers concerned who is going to attend the job, as confirmed by DC i/c CFS or DC/P(G), as the case may be. It was also instructed that all such request for deputing officers on MOT basis should reach the DC i/c CFS or DC/P(G) upto 4.00 pm on working days in a form as appended with the said PN No 27/2007 dated 14.06.2015.
However, in recent times a lot of complaint have been received with regard to its compliance and it is observed that the instructions of PN No 27/2007 dated 14.06.2015 are not being followed in letter and spirit.
It is therefore instructed to all the concerned that the instructions as contained in PN No 27/2007 dated 14.06.2015 should be adhered with completely, so that in future there is no scope of complaint either from officers or the staff of CFS concerned.
