  2. It is clarified that “ Declaration of Intent” needs to be mentioned mandatorily on the free shipping bills for claiming Chapter 3 benefits . This declaration can be made in the product description column in the free shipping bills where sufficient space is available for this purpose. Instances have also been reported where free shipping bills bear only the name of the Chapter 3 scheme like FPS,FMS etc or the intention to claim Chapter 3 benefit has been mentioned manually on the shipping bills duly attested by customs.
