Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has issued Circular No. 44/2018- Customs to introduce a facility to upload digitally signed Licenses / Permits / Certificates / Other Authorizations (LPCOs) by Participating Government Agencies (PGAs) on e-SANCHIT at all ICES locations across India from 16th day of November, 2018.

The beneficiaries i.e. the importers/exporters/customs brokers would not be allowed to upload the LPCOs on e-SANCHIT w.e.f. 16th November, 2018.

As of now only the following PGAs and documents in imports and exports as detailed below has been covered:-

Name of the Practicing Government Agencies (PGAs) Document Code Name of the License/ Permit/Certificate/Other Authorizations (LPCOs)
Central Drug Standard Control Organization (CDSCO)

 Import License for drugs

 Extended Producers Responsibility Authorization (EPRA)
Wildlife Crime Control Bureau (WCCB)
6261WC
 CITES Certificate
 

Further, to facilitate the members of the trade (beneficiaries), the PGAs are required to upload the LPCOs issued by them during the last 15 days from the date of implementation of this facility / project. Any unutilized LPCOs issued on a prior date may also be uploaded by the PGAs on e-SANCHIT, in order to enable the beneficiary to utilize the same.

The beneficiaries i.e. the importers/ exporters/ custom brokers are advised to register on ICEGATE website to enable the PGAs to link the LPCOs to their IEC/GSTN and email ID. Only after the beneficiary is registered on ICEGATE, the unique Image reference Number (IRN) for the LPCO uploaded by PGA be communicated to the beneficiary. This IRN would then be used by the beneficiary to link the LPCO with the Bill of Entry / Shipping Bill for Customs clearance.

For further details please refer the attached Circular.
