Please check Section 25A of the Customs Act as inserted w.e.f. 29-03-02018.

You have to maintain all connected documents which proves that imported machine is sent for repair and received after repair. Otherwise receiving repaired machine would be considered as fresh import and duty will have to be paid.

25A. Where the Central Government is satisfied that it is necessary in the public interest so to do, it may, by notification, exempt such of the goods which are imported for the purposes of repair, further processing or manufacture, as may be specified therein, from the whole or any part of duty of customs leviable thereon, subject to the following conditions, namely:-

(a) the goods shall be re-exported after such repair, further processing or manufacture, as the case may be, within a period of one year from the date on which the order for clearance of the imported goods is made;

(b) the imported goods are identifiable in the export goods; and

(c) such other conditions as may be specified in that notification.

Whether Section 25A is applicable to this case?

Also get GR Waiver from your Authorized Dealer and after repaired goods received back also get closure of this GR Waiver from your AD.

I think the query has not been correctly answered. I am also awaiting to know the complete procedure as required in this case.

Better option is to pay Customs duty and get credit /drawback or refund whatever is admissible. Earlier procedure has been dispensed with after 1.7.17. Virtually, Govt.has done so for proper accountal of inputs/capital goods. Ultimate aim is to avoid misuse.

You would have to follow appended procedure for the it:

  1. Commercial Invoice, Packing List, Tax Invoice would be prepared.
  2. Goods can be removed on payment of tax or LUT or Bond.
  3. GR Waiver form would be applied by you through your A.D.
  4. On repair charges customs duty would be paid.
  5. After return of repaired goods you would have to close the GR Waiver from your A.D.

Dear Sir,

We had imported capital equipment amounting to Euro 12000/- by Air on 25.03.2013 in India but because of calibration of that instruments is done at abroad we had re-exported the material on 07.07.2016.

Now the material is ready again for re-import . Whether after so many days/year can i reimport the said material ?

If yes,what custom procedure I will have to follow ? Our GR waiver of this instrument is pending with the bank for clousure.

We await your favorable reply soon.

Dear Mr.Sanjay

Wrt to your query on repair and return,reimport can be done. As you have mentioned there is abnormal delay in repair return hence suitable explanation letter has to be produced and needs to establish reimport cargo marks and numbers tallying with export. All the original return export docs has to be produced. Now Duty has to be paid on repair cost hence supplier has to give invoice for repair charges.
