Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) has expressed its concern over delay in dispatch of export consignments from Srinagar. 

According to a statement, KCCI president Javed Ahmad Tenga has said that exporters are facing repeatedly problems due to the inability of the Srinagar Customs in providing hassle free services.

Tenga said that in spite of the Kashmir Chamber giving advance notice to the Customs Department about the importance of taking all possible measures for providing smooth and hassle free services in May and June in view of Ramadhan, due to which increased business was anticipated.

 “No consignments of exporters could be dispatched since May 18 due to a minor glitch in the system. This has resulted in causing irreparable losses to the exporters who already had a very tight despatch schedule,” Tenga said, according the statement. 

“The customs officials are resorting to hundred percent physical examination of consignments which apart from being time consuming causes unwarranted harassment. This practice is being conducted only in our state and therefore deplorable.”
