The government has taken steps to provide relief to the exporters facing global container shortages. In the interest of efficiency in the movement, once stuffed these containers would be moved on priority to the port to find a vessel at the earliest for better turnaround time, the government said in a statement.
"As a temporary measure to ease containers available presently for export of containerised cargo and with aim of promoting export of laden marine containers, it is guided that, where the initial period of 6 months is till on or before 31.03.2022, the above provision of the Circular may also be applied on receiving intimation before expiry of initial period of 6 months from the
concerned importer that the container shall be re-exported in laden condition within the next 3 months," it said.
"Any difficulty in this regard may be informed to Board," it added.
