Process of Custom Clearance in India
Once the shipment requirement is confirmed, our team gets in touch with the shipping line to make sure that the Import general manifest (IGM) is filed before the goods arrive. After verifying all the documents, the customs authorities assign the IGM number to the vessel. Thereafter, the shipment is unloaded from the vessel and goods remain with the custodian until the customs process is cleared, appointed by the Commissioner of Customs.
The cargo is unloaded only in approved places in the customs port aka Custom freight station (CFS), under the supervision of approved authorities during working hours. Our team then files a bill of entry (customs copy) electronically for goods on behalf of the importer and arrange for the clearance after paying the taxes, GST and duty. Finally, after getting all the documents verified, the importer receives their goods.
Customs Clearance For Household Goods
Transfer Of residence (TR) & Non-Transfer of Residence (NTR).
A person returning to India after staying abroad for a long period, should always consult his Relocation company about the Transfer of Residence benefit and consider using the benefit so that they can take advantage of relaxed customs duties. This benefit allows the importer to import their personal and household articles, free of duty and other few listed items, on payment of a concessional rate of duty. A person benefiting from the transfer of residence rule is not subject to any minimum stay in India.
A person can qualify for transfer of residence benefit if he/she has stayed abroad for a minimum period of 2 years immediately preceding the date of arrival and the total stay in India in the 2 preceding years should not exceed 180 days. Also, he/she has not availed the benefit of Transfer of Residence in the past 3 years.
