Import tariff

The Special Commodity Levy (SCL) was imposed for a period of 3 months at the following rates on imports -

1) Raw rice (kakulu) - Rs. 15 per kg

2) Nadu rice (red or white) - Rs. 15 per kg.

3) Samba rice  - Rs. 15 per kg

The SCL is a composite levy i.e. it replaces all other applicable import duties and taxes. Earlier, these varieties of rice attracted a customs duty of Rs.50 or 30% (whichever is higher), a 15% VAT, a 7.5% Port and Airport Levy and a 2% Nation Building Tax per kilogram of rice.

The levy has later been decreased to Rs. 5 per kg. from 28 January 2017.
