In these cases, transhipment Cargo meant for destination abroad need not be sent to Cargo warehouses.  In the case of containers other than pre sorted containers, the existing procedure for transhipment of Cargo (Foreign to Foreign) would continue to apply. 

4.         Para 3.3 of the Circular No.6/2007-Customs dated 22.01.2007 stands modified to the above extent.
