All Chinese cargo being checked following nationwide risk alert.
Jun 25, 2020

All shipments coming from China are being physically checked at ports and airports following a nationwide alert regarding enhanced risk weightage ascribed to consignments from that country, said people with knowledge of the matter. Some Indian exporters said retaliatory action is being taken against shipments to Hong Kong.
 
The India-wide 100% physical inspection of Chinese imports, which has been leading to delays in the release of cargo, was sparked by an IT system-based alert, said the people cited above. All ports, including Nhava Sheva, Mumbai and Kolkata, as well as airports have initiated physical checks since Monday midnight, customs sources said. Chennai port was the first to start inspecting all Chinese cargo and other ports followed suit.
