ANNOUNCEMENT 28 Jan 2014In January 2014, the government of India announced a change in import formalities.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
On 28 January 2014, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued Notification No. 07/2014 allowing the import of machinery and equipment from Bhutan that was earlier exported to Bhutan from any other country but through an Indian place of entry. This measure amends the original notification from 1984 whereby all goods that have been exported to Bhutan from a country other than India cannot be imported into India.
The current imports will be permitted on the final decision of the Assistant Commissioner of Customs or Deputy Commissioner of Customs and the submission of necessary documents.
