After such approval, G.D shall be forwarded to Cash Section to obtain free No on it.

After such approval, if required, the consignment may be re-located to the export consignments' areas, under customs escort. The Principal Appraiser (Sheds) will depute an examining officer to escort the consignment.

The exporter/customs agent will provide a copy of the GD for export bearing examination report and copy of mate receipt and bill of lading to the concerned Appraisement group/section within 15 days of clearance of the goods with photocopy of examination report on the shipping bill duly authenticated by the Export Collectorate.
