Clearance through Indian Customs

  • 900

Book Description

This book will find useful information and knowledge to the readers about the working of Customs in India. The contents are a faithful interpretation of Customs law and procedures as author Mr. Samir J Shah has understood in many years of working as a Customs Broker at various ports of the country and also at various ICD’s of the country.

The Author feels fortunate to have worked under both economic regimes of the independent India. With liberalization and opening of many inland Customs clearance centers came in new licensing regulations for Customs House Agents. It opened the doors for many to participate in this segment. These new centers thrived on growth and not on domain knowledge. This was neither a sustainable way of undertaking customs clearance nor desirable from revenue and security view points of the government. Availability of very little literature on this created a curiosity in Mr. Samir J Shah to document it and made a ready reckoner for colleagues and friends engaged in the industry.
