Customs cautions the EXIM Trade on rejection of IGST scrolls due to invalid entry of IFSC bank code due to merger of several nationalised banks

The Customs Authorities have cautioned the Importers, Exporters, Custom House Brokers and other stakeholders about increased incidence of rejection of IGST scrolls due to invalid entry of IFSC codes in the monetary instruments used by them during the course of the EXIM Trade.

The invalid entry of IFSC codes by the EXIM trade is due to lack of awareness about the recent merger of several natioanlised banks with the anchor banks and the consequent changes in the IFSC code of several banks

The Customs Notification cautioned the trade that due to the ongoing exercise of mergers among the nationalised banks, a higher incidence of rejection of IGST Scrolls due to Invalid IFSC (TPE0014) is being noticed. This trend is expected to increase further in future.

All stakeholders are directed to identify their bank accounts which are under process of merger or already merged and update their new IFSC codes along with account number through online Bank management/AD code registration facility provided on ICEGATE website using the ‘modify option’, as per Public Notice 93/2020 dated 29.07.2020 and 130/2020 dated 07.10.2020.
