It is seen in this regard that instructions contained in para 3(iii) of the Circular No. 50/2005-Cus. dated 1stDecember, 2005 in respect of disposal of car and items of negative list has not been implemented in right perspective which has resulted in accumulation of unclaimed, uncleared and confiscated cargo and blockage of substantial Government revenue.


3.         Accordingly, it has been decided by the Board that the concerned Commissioner of Customs should ensure that early investigation, issue of Show Cause Notice and adjudication, if required, in respect of such goods (motor cars and goods of negative list) are taken up on priority so that the goods are not allowed to remain uncleared for longer period blocking substantial Government revenue. These goods may be disposed of by auction after adjudication subject to condition that they are not prohibited in nature. Board also desires noticeable improvement in disposal of such goods unclaimed / uncleared.


4.         These instructions may be brought to the notice of all the concerned officers by issuing suitable Standing orders/instructions/Public Notices. 



Yours faithfully,
