Since the unit operating under Section 65 is also licensed as a Private Bonded warehouse under Section 58 of the Customs Act, 1962, the procedure for surrender of licence will be as per the regulation 8 of the Private Warehouse Licensing Regulations, 2016. A licensee may therefore, surrender the licence granted to him by making a request in writing to the Principal Commissioner of Customs or Commissioner of Customs, as the case may be. On receipt of such request, the licence will be cancelled subject to payment of all dues and clearance of remaining goods in such warehouse. Thus duty on the remaining bonded inventory needs to be paid before surrender of license. In case the bonded goods are desired to be exported, the same needs to be done before surrender of the license.
