Now responsibility of Declaring correct import or export product, Importability of product, Assessment of Rate of duty, Claim of exemption notifications and Imposition of anti-dumping duty including valuation has been shifted to the Importers and Exporters. Now Customs department has limited their role to check the violations done by the Importers and Exporters in their assessed import and export consignments. In coming years, there will remain only surprise checks by the Customs department. The new regime will increase the number of adjudication cases by the Customs and the amount of penalties will definitely rise.
