Commerce Ministry asks FSSAI, customs to cut import clearance time of food cargoes

Updated : April 30, 2018 02:32 PM IST

The commerce ministry has asked FSSAI and customs authorities to clear import consignments of food products in about 48 hours at ports with a view to promote ease of doing business at trade front.
The move would help India improve its ranking in Trading Across Borders, one of the ten parameters of ease of doing business.
Under this system, import customs clearance procedure is carried out randomly as scrutinising every paper and checking all the consignments increase logistics cost of traders.
