The DGFT has brought in several changes in the Standard Input Output Norms (SION)

PUBLIC NOTICE NO. 70 (RE:2005)/2004-2009, Dated: November 29, 2005

Import of marble – DGFT clarifies

As per DGFT Circular No. 24/2004-09 dated 30.8.2005,

“Eligibility- Entitlement would be restricted to those applicants who have set up manufacturing / processing units in the country and have made imports of these items in the preceding years when these items were under SIL list.”

Now the DGFT clarifies that

“manufacturing / processing units should have been set up during the years when marble was under SIL List or before. Hence documentary evidence showing establishment of manufacturing / processing units during that period should be produced”.

Similarly the circular prescribed that

The total import of rough marble blocks under Exim Code Nos.25151100, 25151210, 25151220, will be subject to a ceiling of 1.30 lakh MT per licensing year. The entitlement of individual firm will be worked out on the basis of the turnover of the preceding year. The applicant will be required to furnish a Chartered Accountant certificate certifying his turnover.

Now the DGFT clarifies that

the entitlement will be calculated on the basis of the turnover of marble imported under Chapter 25 of the ITC (HS) Classification of Export Import Items 2004-09 only. These companies who have been importing under Chapter 25 may also add their complete turnover for imported marble for the preceding year i.e. 2004-05. For this purpose a revised Chartered Accountant certificates indicating turnover of the preceding year (2004-05) based on above criteria should be filed.

POLICY CIRCULAR. NO 34 (RE-2005)/2004-09, Dated : Nov 30, 2005

Corrupt Customs – a global phenomenon?

Of 10 areas rife with corruption in Vietnam, the field considered top is land management, followed by customs and traffic police, according to a survey by the Central Committee for Internal Affairs.

Most respondents said that corruption is stirred by greed, not by poverty, because it often occurs among figures in authority. Corrupt officials often intentionally cause difficulties for citizens seeking civil services in order to extort money from them. 

From a report in VietNamNet Bridge yesterday.

Until tomorrow with more DDT

Have a nice day.
