Indian Customs and Excise Gateway

(ICEGATE) using the remote EDI System

(RES).

Once the documents are submitted in the ICES, the Bills of Entry/Shipping Bills is then processed electronically by the designated officer without requirement of paper movement as in the case of manual Bills of Entry/Shipping Bills.

Facility of E-payment through the designated bank.

Customs is equipped to accept the duty through E-payment, provided the designated bank is in a position to provide this service to their customers.

Future :

Connectivity with other organizations like DGFT, RBI, etc.

  • Enable remittances, issuance of licence and its uses can also be done electronically.

One centralized server at Delhi.

a Risk Management System(RMS) module is developed and implemented at selected Customs station, giving facility of

Self assessment to the specified categories of imports.

Benefits of EDI System:
  • It ensures transparency in the overall customs clearances.
  • It also increases efficiency of the Customs.
  • It decreases the dwell time and the transaction cost for the trade.

B S Patel – Mar ‘09

slide21
Benefits of EDI System:
  • It reduces unnecessary interface between the trade and the department.
  • It helps in proper management of data and keeps it safe from any kind of tampering.
  • It does a way with the human error in the form of calculation etc.

B S Patel – Mar ‘09

slide22
Benefits of EDI System:
  • It reduces possibility of fraud by flashing alerts.
  • It also helped in creation of National Import Data Base, which is referred by the assessing officer for checking the correct value and classification of the goods.

B S Patel – Mar ‘09

slide23
Wordof caution.

All the benefits of the EDI System can only be reaped if the people working on it (whether the departmental officer or the trade representative) are properly trained.

B S Patel – Mar ‘09

slide24
One of the basic requirement for the successful operation of EDI system is the proper and correct feeding of data at the initial stage.
  • Once the data is not feed properly, it becomes very difficult to amend it or rectify it subsequently.
  • If these precautions are taken care of, then the concept of paperless office in the Customs department will no more be a dream but a pleasant reality.
