After security check, one copy of CSVP will be returned to CB. Thereafter the procedure currently in force will have to be followed. Request for hiring of Fork lift if any for cargo stacking may be mentioned in the Export Cargo ticket itself( instead of submitting a separate Form 72 for Forklift hiring at present).
For Entry / Exit of Vehicles at CFS, CSVP may be used ( instead of Vehicle Pass at present)with only relevant data’s of Vehicle filled up.
CB must ensure that Forms are kept in their safe custody and returned to CFS Gate office/ Export Document section as the case may be after completing their intended operation. Flow chart of the process and sample forms of Cargo Slip Cum Vehicle Pass (CSVP), Export Cargo Ticket (ECT) to be used is enclosed for guidance.
The revised procedure will be effective from 20-9-2017. All concerned are requested to take note of the above for their information and suitable action.
