First shipment arrives in India from Chabahar

World

March 14, 2019

NEW DELHI: The first shipment on Transports International Routiers' (TIR) from Afghanistan to India through Iran Chabahar Port arrived at the port of Nhava Sheva, Mumbai and Mundra on Wednesday.

India joined the TIR Convention (the United Nations Customs Convention on International Transport of Goods under cover of TIR Carnets) on June 15, 2017. The convention allows goods to be outlined in a TIR carnet and sealed in load compartments. Customs verify the carnet and check the seals, with no need for physical checking of the contents, enabling shipments to pass through countries without being opened at borders. Welcoming the arrival of the maiden shipment, Central Board of Indirect Taxes & Customs (CBIC) chairman Pranab Kumar Das said the TIR convention will help in fast and easy movement of goods across multiple countries under a common customs document and guarantee.
