Import tariff

 On 15 December 2014, Bangladesh issued SRO 288-AIN/2014/2528-Customs exempting import of "other coal" under HS 2701 from the import duty and the Advance Trade VAT (ATV).
 
According to a news report, this exemption has been granted to facilitate import from other countries after a mining ban was issued in the Indian state of Meghalaya, which was the major supplier for such coal.
