Government re-opens interstate movement of goods for inland and exports
The Union Government has amended its lockdown rules and decided to allow interstate movement of goods and cargo for inland and exports. The Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council has shared the news with its member exporters.
On March 24, the Government of India ordered a 21-day nationwide lockdown and suspension of the transportation of all ‘non-essential’ goods, in a bid to halt the spread of coronavirus.
“MHA has further issued an addendum No. 40-3/2020-DM-I(A) dated 25th March 2020 to the earlier guidelines, wherein point J refers operations of railways, airports and seaports for cargo movement and interstate movement of goods/cargo for inland and exports shall be allowed,” the GJEPC wrote in a letter to member exporters, it shared on its website.
The GJEPC has posted a copy of the detailed ‘Customs Notification’ on its website and directed members to read it. The GJEPC announced on Tuesday that it planned to liaise with local authorities on shipments and customs regulations in the face of Covid-19.
The GJEPC had ambitious plans for the Indian jewellery industry this year with international facing trade shows planned in a number of cities. The organisation currently still plans to hold the India International Jewellery Show Premiere trade show in Mumbai this August.
