Seeking exemption of detention charge levied by shipping company


10 June, Birganj. Birganj Chamber of Commerce and Industry has urged the government to take the initiative to waive the detention charges levied by the shipping company on the container of goods.

The union issued a press release on Saturday urging the government to take necessary steps to waive detention charges during the lockdown period.

The association urged the government to take the initiative for this exemption, saying that they have to pay detention fees of Rs 12,000 to 15,000 per container per day when around 4,000 containers were stranded at the Sirsia Dry Port in Birganj during the lockout. Has happened.

Saying that all shipping companies have started demanding detention charges, the association has attracted the government’s attention that shipping companies are charging billions of rupees from Nepal.

The period of detection of containers of goods imported into India through Been Indian ports has been waived for the lockdown period. However, not all shipping companies have waived detention fees for containers of goods imported into Nepal. Therefore, we would like to request the government to take initiative for exemption.

According to the union, the containers are intercepted at the dry port and Birgunj Integrated Check Post, as documents of goods containers imported into Nepal are not available.
