This is to update you all that due to the online pass system for Chennai harbour (Port) entry from January 2020 it is mandatory to carry Aadhar Card and a Passport Size photo for all future consignees for clearance at the Port.
If the consignee doesn't furnish an Aadhar card there is no other option in the system to arrange for an entry pass. Hence, the shipments would be custom cleared via furnishing the Power of Attorney only at the Chennai Port.
