F. No. SG/MISC/254/2006 SIIB (X) (Pt. 1) Date : 23.11.2006
STANDING ORDER NO. 46 / 2006
Attention of all officers of JNCH is invited to Standing Order No. 29/2006 dated 21.07.2006 wherein it was directed that while sanctioning drawback / verifying DEPB scrips or allowing any export benefit, the movement of shipping bill is to be verified and if in the row showing movement from EGM to Hist / DBK, officer name is mentioned, authenticity of export should be verified from the manual EGM filed with the MCD.
Complaints have been received from trade stating that verification process is taking a lot of time and officers have also complained that the process of opening separate windows for seeing the shipping bill movement, etc., considerably slows down the processing of drawback claims. Further, it is also noticed that the number of shipping bills added to EGM (where EGM is not electronically filed) is very less and does not warrant checking of shipping bill movement in all cases.
Hence, it is therefore directed that officers before allowing export benefit should ensure that the authenticity of export is verified from the manual EGM filed with the MCD in cases where shipping bills are manually added by the officers and where shipping bills are not figuring in the EGM electronically filed by the shipping lines.
Standing Order No. 29/2006 dated 21.07.2006 is withdrawn.
