Blog: NASSCOM Official Blog

Dear all,

 With a view to enable health, safety and business continuity, Directorate General of Export Promotion (DGEP) has recently clarified that provisions relating to temporary removal laptops, computers, etc. from units in Software Technology Park of India (STPI) are provided under Circular no. 17/2003- Cus dated 24.03.2003.

As per the said notification, there is no requirement of approval from Customs authorities for temporary removal laptops, computers, etc. from units in STPI. Instead, it requires endorsement of certificate issued by STPI unit to its employees detailing the description of goods being taken out temporarily and its acknowledgement to AC/DC of Customs. Such endorsement and acknowledgement of the same can be made electronically over electronic mail without the need to physically visit the customs office.

The clarification was issued in response to NASSCOM representation to CBIC and DGEP officials, requesting their support in easing process of movements of equipment’s from STPI units for the purpose of work from Home in current crisis situation. NASSCOM appreciates the timely clarification provided by DGEP.

A copy of the circular is attached for your kind reference.For any further queries/ information, kindly write to and
