Import tariff

The Ministry of Finance through Notification No. 5/2016-Customs removed an exemption from the additional customs duty of 4% on the import of certain medical devices under HS 9018, 9019, 9020, 9021 and 9022 when imported for "medical, surgical, dental or veterinary uses". The exemption which was earlier available to all products under these tariff lines has been limited to specific products.

The tariff lines, at the Indian 8 digit HS level, that will still attract a lower import duty are - 9018.32.30, 9018.50.20, 9018.90.21, 9018.90.24, 9018.90.43, 9018.90.95, 9018.90.96, 9018.90.97, 9018.90.98, 9019.10.20, 9022.90.10 or 9022.90.30.
