Freight Import Rules and Regulations for India

Over the last few years, the Indian government has gradually simplified and streamlined import procedures, gradually positioning the country as relatively friendly.

A number of consumer product import licensing requirements have been eliminated, and procedures have been improved to speed up import clearances.

The ability to self-assess the amount of duty and tax you must pay is included in your import declaration, also known as a bill of entry in India, which further streamlines the procedure. Additionally, it is feasible to pay the duties online.

India may be one of the easier nations to export or import to, but it is also one of the priciest. Duty tariffs now stand at about 15% which is pretty high compared to other countries under WTO.

Shipments to India: Documentation Needed

The following documents are needed for customs clearance in India:
●  A Commercial invoice
●  Letter of credit
●  Packing list

The commercial invoice will be used by Indian customs to determine the value of the shipment and calculate the duties payable.

The letter of credit, which is given by the bank of the importer, ensures that the exporter will be paid for the goods. 

Please send a scanned copy of the documentation to GSC Movers before the freight departs.

On top of that, they might ask you to produce Licences, permits, and certificates if necessary.

Which should you choose when shipping goods from the UAE to India: air or ocean freight?

We are going to list out 3 main points that will help you choose the right mode of shipping for your goods.

  1. The cost of shipping & your budget : We know for instance ocean freight is cheaper than air freight but in reality the norms on which both shipping works are quite different and in many cases you may find air freight cheaper. For instance ocean freight billing is based on containers used ( based on a metric called LLC and FCL) while air freight is basically priced based on the weight of cargo. To put it simply, if your cargo is big and heavy go for ocean freight and if your cargo is small go for air freight. 
  2. Speed of delivery: When it comes to speed of delivery air freight wins the race by a big fat mile. But in the end this is totally up to your speed and convenience. Air freight is fast but if the cargo is pretty big you might have to consider using ocean freight.
  3. Reliability of the mode : When it comes to reliability both of them are pretty good,ƒ air freight tends to live up to the hype of maximum safety. To put it simply “ high security at a minimum risk”.

  • The distance
  • The type of delivery service you want (Port-to-Port or Door-to-Door)
