Important notification regarding provisional release of export – goods detained for investigation

The Circular was issued with the objective of expediting the clearance of export goods and to ensure that where permissible by law, exports should not get unduly delayed, thereby causing congestion in ports as well as delays in fulfilment of export orders. Thus, it was instructed that provisional release of export goods that are suspected of being mis-declared or where declaration is to be confirmed by further enquiry / test or detained/seized for mis declaration of quantity / value / description should be given on execution of Bond and suitable security to cover the redemption fine and penalty. Further, continued detention of export goods in excess of three days must be brought to the notice of the Commissioner of Customs.
