a re­cent cir­cu­lar, the Cen­tral Board of Ex­cise and Cus­toms (CBEC), Min­istry of Fi­nance, Gov­ern­ment of In­dia has di­rected all ma­jor in­dus­try as­so­ci­a­tions in­clud­ing FICCI, CII, PHD Cham­bers and FFFAI to take part in all cus­toms-re­lated mat­ter to ex­pe­dite the cargo op­er­a­tions in In­dia. To in­ter­act with the in­dus­try stake­hold­ers CBEC has cre­ated a Per­ma­nent Trade Fa­cil­i­ta­tion Com­mit­tee ( PTFCs) in each Cus­tom House, which in­cludes lo­cal trade and lo­gis­tics as­so­ci­a­tions as well as Cus­toms Bro­kers as­so­ci­a­tions.

The Board also noted that is­sues could be bet­ter re­solved at the lo­cal level, if pre­sented to the Chief Com­mis­sion­ers/Com­mis­sion­ers by the apex trade bod­ies. Hence, CBEC stressed on the apex trade bod­ies to meet the Chief Com­mis­sion­ers/Com­mis­sion­ers. The apex trade bod­ies could also at­tend the PTFCs along with their con­stituents, who are mem­bers of the PTFCs.
