F.No. S/22-Gen-51/2005 A(M) (I) JNCH Date : 22.03.2006
STANDING ORDER No. 13/2006
It has been observed that a lot of correspondence regarding expiry / renewal of Bank Guarantees is being received in the Commissionerate from various Banks. As per the procedure which this Custom House has adopted all the Appraising Groups are to collect the letters received from Banks from Appraising () Section for initiating further action. It is seen that this is not happening. It thus appears that the Appraising Groups have not carried out the exercise of updating of Bank Guarantees and no proper monitoring mechanism seems to be in place. All the Group Assistant Commissioners are hereby directed to take stock of all the records pertaining to Bank Guarantees available in the Groups immediately and update the list of Bank Guarantees. Thereafter, action for renewal / enforcement may be taken without further delay. In this regard attention is also invited to instructions issued vide Standing Order No. 31/2005 dated 10.08.2005. These are once again reiterated for strict compliance.
