Government expects this initiative to greatly facilitate the exporting community

BS Reporter  |  New Delhi 

The government will provide Customs clearance for all exports 24x7 from four major airports in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai from July.

“All exports, including those made under the export incentives scheme as well as duty drawback scheme, will now be able to be move out of the country on a 24x7 basis,” the finance ministry said in a statement.

The expansion of the 24x7 facility at the four major air cargo complexes/airports follows closely on the heels of similar Customs clearance facility for exports under Free Shipping Bills (without claiming export incentives), made available this month at Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Coimbatore, Goa, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kochi, Kolkata, Kozhikode, Nashik, Vishakhapatnam and Thiruvananthapuram.
