HOM/HOP from AS (ED & States)

            Last month, the Hon’ble Minister of Finance & Corporate Affairs launched a new IT initiative of Central Board of Indirect Taxes & Customs – Atithi@Indian Customs - for arriving international passengers.  This state-of-the-art mobile application enables incoming passengers to make advance customs and currency declarations even before reaching Indian airports. 

           As you are aware, this digital platform has huge potential to enhance the experience of tourists and others coming to the country and is a good demonstration of our ability to utilize national digital platforms for e-Governance to facilitate Ease of Doing Business, minimize physical interaction and promote digital technologies for enhanced productivity.  HOMs/HOPs are requested to use available publicity mechanisms including Social Media platforms to encourage wider use of the mobile app for overseas Indian community, foreign tourists and business persons coming to India.
