No extension of end time will be allowed.

explain the bidding process, a sample screen showing a few
lots is displayed below.
us say the bidder has selected Lot No.2 for bidding. Once he selects Lot No.2, he will be presented with the
screen given below.
bidder can enter his bid in the box indicated and register the
same by clicking on the ‘make bid’ option.
The bidder can view the current highest bid which is
indicated in the ‘current bid’ column.
the bidder can opt for auto-bidding by which he can register
the highest amount he is willing to pay and also the
Rs.100/-) by which he would like the system to increment over
other/competitive bids. The system will then register his bid
and automatically increment over the other bids as and when
they are placed till the highest bid indicated by him is
reached. The auto
bidding system is illustrated by the following example:-
us say, a bidder ‘x’ has given the highest bid of
Rs.50,000/- for the lot by opting for an auto bid with an
increment of Rs.1,000/- selected by him;
another bidder ‘y’ bids an amount of Rs.25,000/- for this
lot, the system
will give a message that “your bid is too low” and
increment the bid by the increment indicated by the bidder
‘x’ who has opted for auto bidding.
The screen will show
the highest bid plus the incremental value the bidder ‘x’
has set and show Rs.26,000 as current highest bid and
give the bidder ‘y’ a message that he has been outbidded
by the bidder ‘x’ who has opted for the auto bid.
there is another bid for Rs.30,000/-, automatically the system
will increment the bid by the incremental amount indicated by
the bidder who has opted for auto increment option as above;
process will continue till any bidder bids for a higher amount
no other person bids more than Rs.50,000/-, the auto increment
bidder ‘x’ will be liable to pay the last current highest
the bidder who chooses auto increment option, has the facility
of indicating his willingness to pay maximum amount so that if
there is no other higher bid, he does not have to participate
in the auction;
the auto bidding increment is not opted for, the bidder will
be required to indicate his bid which should be atleast
Rs.100/- above the current highest bid;
there is already a auto increment bidding, as soon as the
bidder completes bidding, the system will automatically
increment and indicate the highest bid;
system also will give a message to the bidder that there is
a bidder who has bid for auto increment and therefore,
he has already been overbid and if he likes, he should again
bid or set a auto increment bid and indicate the maximum
amount he is willing to pay;
case the second bidder also opts for auto increment bidding
and indicates the highest amount, the system will
automatically over-bid him if his bidding is lower than the
bidder who has already opted for auto
if the amount indicated by the second bidder is higher than
the first bidder who has bid for auto increment, the system
will automatically over-bid the first auto increment bidder
and indicate an amount which is higher than the increment
amount indicated by the second bidder;
any given point of time, there will be only one bidder who has
opted for the auto increment and whose amount will be the
highest of all the amounts of those who have opted for the
auto increment bidding;
It has been noticed that there is a time-lag between
the time of bidding on the user screen and updation in the
time-lag may vary depending upon the speed of the modem and
specifications of the computer.
Therefore, the bidder may not see the result of his bid
it is suggested that if a bidder is very keen to buy the
product, he should set the maximum bid amount well in advance
so that he does not lose out while attempting to bid at the
last minute. Frequent
usage of refresh option is also suggested.
Once the auction time is over, the system will
automatically shut out all the bidders and close the auction;
addition, there is also an option to put in sealed tender on
the internet auction. This
option can be exercised only once by a bidder for each lot
during the period of auction.
sealed tender cannot be seen by any one including the auction
administrator till the auction is over and reserve prices are
fed into the system.
effort of the Department has been to replicate physical
auction-cum-sealed tender process on the internet of course
without the requirement of physical presence of
bidders, auctioneer, etc.
the Department will examine the bidding amounts and in the
case of the bids accepted, the bidders will receive
communication by e-mail as well as by
post about acceptance of their bidding.
At the time of examination of bid amounts, the highest
bid will be considered for acceptance. When the tender submitted is higher than the maximum bid and
auto bid limit then that tender will be considered.
In case the auto-bid limit set by a bidder is higher
than the tender then the incremental value specified in that
auto bid will be applied to the tender. In the unlikely event
of the maximum bid and physical
tender/e-tender and physical tender/auto-bid limit and
physical tender being equal then the concerned
bidders will be required to submit one more sealed
tender and the highest of these two will be considered.
7 days of the receipt of the letter indicating acceptance of
the bid by the Department, the bidders will be expected to pay
the 10% EMD or the full bid amount according to their
case only EMD is paid, delivery of the goods will be made only
after the full amount is paid within the time limit specified
in the conditions of sale.
the full amount is paid, a delivery order will be issued to
the bidder to receive the goods.
However, the delivery of goods will be subject to
fulfillment of any regulations under Customs Act or any other
act in force like Plant Quarantine, Port Health Officer, etc.
and he should take delivery within the stipulated time.
case a bidder fails to pay EMD after his bid has been
accepted, he will be black-listed and the deposit amount of
Rs.4900/- will be forfeited by the Department
He will be re-registered only if he compensates the
Department for the loss suffered by the Department
In case the goods are sold subsequently at a lower
price, the re-registration will be considered on payment of
the differential between the bid amount made by the debarred
and the new bidder with interest as calculated by the
re-registration, fresh deposit will have to be made by the
details & photograph of the defaulter - bidder will be
flashed in all Custom Houses in India so that they will also
not allow him to participate in the auctions conducted by
names and addresses of the bidders whose bids have been
accepted will not be published on the website or during
auction or at any time.
bidders will also be free to authorize another person to take
delivery on payment of the full amount to the Department
However, the person taking delivery should satisfy any
regulatory requirement under Exim Policy or under any law
being in force. However,
if the other person authorized by him refuses to take delivery
or fails to take delivery on payment of full bid amount, the
bidder will be debarred from participating in future auction
as proposed above.
the list of accepted bids published on the website also, the
Lot No. and the highest bid accepted only will be published.
