In the last few years, customs clearan ce has undergone a paradigm shift, from largely being focused on revenue collection, to greater impetus on trade facilitation and ease of doing business, without compromising on the revenue. Towards this aim of balancing the intricate requirement of trade facilitation as well as revenue protection, Onsite Post Clearan ce Audit (OSPCA) was introduced. Wherein compliance checks shifted from the clearan ce stage to the post clearan ce stage

One of the worst impacted sectors due to the pandemic has been the manufacturing sector.

Government has now announced the scheme of duty deferment and manufacturing in Customs Bonded Warehouses (CBWs), a WTO- complied scheme

Since last year, CBIC has been issuing new regulations, circulars and FAQs for more clarity under the said scheme
