Indian Custom Import Duty Online

Customs duty is a tax imposed on goods when they move across international borders. The amount of customs duty in India is determined by factors such as value, weight, dimensions of the item. Customs duty is a variant of Indirect tax and it applies to all imported goods and some export goods. 

Indian Custom import duty aims to safeguard India’s economy, jobs, environment, residents, by regulating the movement of goods, especially prohibited goods in and out of any country. The import duty also raises revenue for India.
