Import tariff

A Special Commodity Levy (SCL) of Rs. 5 per kg. was imposed on broken rice imports for a period of 3 months. 

The SCL is a composite levy i.e. it replaces all other applicable import duties and taxes. Earlier, broken 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. 0.25 per kg. from 1 August 2017.
