Kun­war ap­pears to be sat­is­fied with the suc­cess the EDI ini­tia­tives have brought in for the ship­pers. “There was a lot of re­sis­tance from the user’s side about the cred­i­bil­ity of our sys­tem. But we suc­ceeded due to the re­lent­less ef­forts made by the whole cargo team - the com­mit­ted work­force down the line with un­be­liev­able team co­or­di­na­tion by HODs and hard­work and ex­cel­lent pro­fes­sion­al­ism shown by the IGIA Cargo IT team, headed by Late Gurmeet Singh and MD Kala,” said Kun­war. “On this oc­ca­sion. we would like to pay our hum­ble trib­ute to Late Gurmeet Ji for his ded­i­ca­tion, sin­cer­ity and hon­est ap­proach to­wards this task who gave his life to this pas­sion,” he fur­ther added.

Kun­war also com­mended the AAI man­age­ment, the CHA and Freight For­ward­ing com­mu­nity, lo­cal Cus­toms IT depart­ment/ NIC, the then Sec­re­tary Com­merce and DDG for their sup­port to make the ven­ture a re­al­ity.

“IGIA im­ple­mented EDI in im­ports dur­ing 2009 and ac­cord­ingly im­ple­mented web-based EDI in both ex­port and im­port cargo oper­a­tion and doc­u­men­ta­tion in its true spirit,” Kun­war pointed out.
