CUSTOM HOUSE, 60, RAJAJI SALAI, CHENNAI-600001.
This Commissionerate has set itself the challenge to remove all pendencies in critical areas of work especially Drawback and Refunds that directly impact exporters and importers. Accordingly, after launching special disposal drives the Pendency of Drawback and Refund claims was brought down to only 8 and 229 respectively as on 31.3.2009. These claims and few others could not be disposed since the applicants failed to produce the relevant documents such as Freight Certificate, Bank Realisation Certificate, etc. whereas in some cases investigations are pending
It may be appreciated that while all efforts are being made by the officers of this Commissionerate to dispose pending matters, cooperation of the exporters and the importers is required to expedite the pace of disposal. Accordingly, I urge all concerned to contact the concerned officers (named below) with the connected documents related to their pending claims so that these are finalised. The list of pending Refund claims is also given below and in case a particular claim is not found mentioned therein, the same may be urgently brought to the attention of the concerned officer.
I am confident that with the cooperation of exporters, importers and CHAs, all pendencies shall be wiped out at the earliest.
