Custom Laws and Duties

The Customs Act and The Customs Tariff Act (hereinafter referred to as CTA), along with various Rules and Regulations in relation to them, serve as the consolidated codes of law on the levy of Custom duties on import and export in India. However, the purpose of these customs laws is more than regulating the export and import of goods. In addition, they keep a tab on smuggling but more importantly, as we will subsequently discuss, they strive for the protection of the domestic industry from any unwarranted damage. The article attempts to highlight the extent to which the Customs Laws in India serve the purpose of protecting domestic industry by examining the different types of Customs duty levied on goods transported across international borders. Further, the introduction of GST has brought certain changes in certain types of Customs Duty. The article, to a limited extent, also delves into that.
