The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) issued a circular which, has brought onboard e-SANCHIT App one more Participating Government Agencies (PGA) namely Registrar of Newspapers of India (RNI) with its Licenses/Permits/Certificates/Other Authorizations (LPCOs). The eSANCHIT application provides facility to upload digitally signed Licenses/Permits/Certificates/Other Authorizations (LPCOs) through Participating Government Agencies (PGAs) at all ICES locations across India.

‘eSANCHIT’ application is successfully in operation since April 01, 2018, with the objective of further reducing the physical interface between Customs/regulatory agencies and the trade and to increase the speed of clearance in both imports and exports, a facility to upload digitally signed LPCOs by PGAs on eSANCHIT at all ICES locations across India.

Registrar of Newspapers of India (RNI) with its LPCOs is being brought onboard e-SANCHIT as a PGA for this purpose.

The beneficiaries i.e. importers or exporters or customs brokers would not be allowed to upload the previously issued LPCOs on e-SANCHIT with effect from May 31, 2020, as the facility to upload the LPCOs is now being fully made available to Registrar of Newspapers of India (RNI).

It is reiterated that the PGA will be communicating with the beneficiaries through the e-mail addresses registered in the ICEGATE. Board had also introduced a simplified auto-registration process in ICEGATE based on email ids already provided by them for registration under GST without the use of digital signatures for limited purposes of e-SANCHIT (communication and viewing) and the IRNs will be communicated to such email ids,” the circular said.

The total number of PGAs on Board e-Sachit to date becomes 51.
