This free time will be over and above the free time which are being extended to customers for calculation of charges as per extant public tariff, if the container/cargo is cleared from ICD/Tughlakabad within one month of the end of lockdown on April 14.

Besides, terminal service charges on the container and late payment surcharge have been waived off from March 22 to April 14 (both days inclusive), the public notice said.

These concessions have been offered to facilitate trade which is facing challenges in clearance and transportation of cargo and in arranging finance.

To mitigate the challenges arising out of the lockdown, the Tughlakabd ICD is functioning 24/7 with adequate measures in place to contain the epidemic, it said

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance.
