- The Central Board of Indirect Taxes & Customs (CBIC) has launched e- Sanchit (e-Storage and Computerized Handling of Indirect Tax documents) for paperless processing, uploading of supporting documents, to facilitate the trading across Borders.
- It has already been made available to importers and exporters in the country and as a next step, CBIC is extending this facility to PGA (Participating Government Agencies).
- This will enable PGAs to provide necessary clearances, in the form of certificates, through the document upload facility to the beneficiaries (importer and exporters). Beneficiaries shall be accordingly notified of the uploaded documents.
Who can login e-SANCHIT application?
- Only those PGA users who are registered on ICEGATE, along with a valid digital signature certificate, can upload supporting documents in this electronic format.
