Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

On 12 June 2018, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade through Notification No. 11/2015-2020 notified a port restriction on imports of natural rubber. Such imports, which earlier had no restrictions, will henceforth be required to be imported only through the sea ports of Chennai and Nhava Sheva (Jawaharlal Nehru Port).

This restriction will not be applicable on imports made under Advance Authorization, which allows duty free import of raw materials to produce export goods.
