Logi-Sys Leads the Way in Customs Compliance for SEZs

In a significant move towards streamlining customs processes in India, the Government of India has mandated that effective July 1, 2024, all filing documents for imports and exports related to non-ITIITES Special Economic Zones (SEZs) and Free Trade Warehousing Zones (FTWZs) must be processed through the new ICEGATE portal. This shift represents a major step in the government's ongoing efforts to digitize and modernize customs operations across the country.


The Transition to ICEGATE


Previously, the SEZ online system was managed by NSDL (National Securities Depository Limited) e-Governance Infrastructure Limited. The transition to the ICEGATE portal marks a pivotal change, integrating SEZ and FTWZ operations more closely with the broader customs infrastructure under the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC).


This new mandate aims to:


  1. Enhance operational efficiency

  2. Reduce paperwork and manual interventions

  3. Improve transparency in customs processes

  4. Facilitate easier data sharing and analysis

  5. Streamline compliance procedures for businesses
