Payment of Custom Duty on ECCS Courier Imports enabled through E-Payment Gateway


On 26th August 2021 the Central Board of Indirect Tax and Customs (‘CBIC’) via its Twitter account informed that it has now enabled the payment of custom duty on Express Cargo Clearance System (‘ECCS’) Courier Imports through its E-Payment Gateway.

The Express Industry Council of India (EICI) and CBIC has jointly implemented the ECCS for faster clearance process for imports and exports under the Courier Imports and Exports (Electronic Declaration and Processing) Regulations, 2010. Now, the government has further expedited the process through its E-payment gateway.
