Attention is invited to the conditions imposed under paragraph 4.32.2 of HBP v1. For ready reference, relevant portion of this para is extracted below:


However in respect of following items, exporter shall be required to give declaration with regard to technical characteristics, quality and specification in shipping bill.

(i) At the time of issuance of DFIA:

Ensure that the exporter has given the details with regard to technical characteristics, quality and specifications in the application for DFIA (as at Sl. No. 15 of ANF A-H). RA should specify the details of technical characteristics, quality and specifications of such items in the DFIA.

(ii) At the time of EODC/Redemption /Transferability:

RAs must check that the same details are given in the shipping bills, and if the details are not given, the item(s) in question should be deleted from the duty free import list under DFIA. If, however, different technical characteristics quality or specifications are given in the shipping bill as compared to the endorsement on DFIA, then in such cases, the DFIA will be amended accordingly, only when the item(s) has (have) not yet been imported. In cases where imports have already been made, (with different technical characteristics, details and specifications) then the DFIA holder has to regularise the case for import of such items (which differ in their technical characteristics, details, specifications etc. from what was endorsed on the DFIA) by paying duty with interest etc., as the case may be.
