Under the EDI system, the importer does not submit documents as such but submits declarations in electronic format containing all the relevant information to the Service Centre. A signed paper copy of the declaration is taken by the service centre operator for non-reputability of the declaration. A checklist is generated for verification of data by the importer/ Customs Broker. After verification, the data is filed by the Service Centre Operator and EDI system generates a Bill of Entry Number, which is endorsed on the printed checklist and returned to the importer/ Customs Broker. No original documents are taken at this stage. Original documents are taken at the time of examination. The importer/ Customs Broker also needs to sign on the final document before Customs clearance

Here European failed to declare 2 nd cargo in any docs and their customs are also I dark.

Indian importer being unaware declared only one import. So 2 nd cargo though came to India, is not in any docs. This got surfaced after 4 years when container is destuffed. None will believe this. How to address  please enlighten

Dear Jayanata, 

In such condition, you may ask your foriegn Client to submit a pending Invoice first so that you can make a payment against that. As far as I understand a written Invoice is valid upto 4 year.

For 2 nd cargo  there is no export shipping docs available with Exporter. When their customs do not certify the export, then importers bank will object to it, ..there is no bill of entry for 2 nd cargo. Only physical installation photo is there. Customs will hold importer responsible for suppression of import. In Kerala  , a lot of litigation is going on gold import. So all are scared to admit it.
