In a communication it sent to the newspaper July 27 in response to a SGGP story a few days earlier that the system will be abolished, the department said e-clearance would be introduced at all its sub-departments since four years of trial had shown good results in modernizing customs operations.

While there are still a lot of limitations that need to be addressed, the e-clearance system would remain intact, it assured.
