Export Licence

Majority of goods are allowed to be exported without obtaining a licence. Export licenses are only required for items listed in the Schedule 2 of ITC (HS) Classifications of Export and Import items. An application for grant of Export Licence for such items must be submitted to the Director General of Foreign Trade (DGFT). The Export Licensing Committee under the Chairmanship of Export Commissioner considers such applications on merits for issue of export licenses.

Export of Special Chemicals, Organisms, Materials, Equipment and Technologies (SCOMET) items are also permitted under a licence or prohibited altogether. Guidelines for Export of SCOMET items can be viewed here..

Export of Samples

Export of samples upto specified limits are allowed free. The exporter is required to be registered with the appropriate Export Promotion Council to avail of this benefit. Samples with permanent marking as "sample not for sale" are allowed freely for export without any limit.

Customs Officer may verify the quantity of the goods actually received and thereafter mark the Electronic Shipping Bill and also hand over all original documents to the Dock Appraiser, who may assign a customs officer for the examination of the goods.
