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
