Vanaja N Sarna, IRS, Mem­ber (P&V), Cen­tral Board of Ex­cise and Cus­toms (CBEC), launched the soft­ware to mon­i­tor un­claimed cargo, be­ing de­vel­oped by the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Con­tainer Freight Sta­tions (NACFS) Chen­nai Chap­ter, in the pres­ence of S Ramesh, IRS, Chief Com­mis­sioner of Cus­toms (Chen­nai Zone), P K Das, IRS, Cus­toms Preven­tive, Trichy, and M S Arun, Chair­man (Chen­nai Chap­ter), NACFS, at a func­tion held on the premises of Chen­nai Cus­toms.

and dis­pose of per­ish­able cargo on pri­or­ity.

Ramesh said, “UCC has be­come a press­ing prob­lem and the time has come to find out a lon­glast­ing so­lu­tion.” He con­grat­u­lated the NACFS Chen­nai Chap­ter team for com­ing out with an on­line soft­ware for UCC and ex­pressed hope that it would mit­i­gate the prob­lem to a cer­tain ex­tent.”

Arun said, “On­line prod­uct has been de­signed in such a way that it could fa­cil­i­tate the whole process with­out the sup­port of any pa­per work. The role of CFS ends lit­er­ally af­ter en­ter­ing all the de­tails needed about the UCC and the cus­toms of­fi­cials deal­ing with the sub­ject could grasp the in­for­ma­tion in al­most a real-time man­ner.

The new soft­ware could come handy in dis­pos­ing off UCC is­sues in short­est pos­si­ble time and also help the CFS to keep their ar­eas free of UCC.”

Sarna con­grat­u­lated the Chen­nai Cus­toms Zone for be­ing a pi­o­neer in such on­line soft­ware and an­nounced that she will try to in­tro­duce the on­line sys­temy in other parts of the coun­try.
