India Government Has Implemented a Goods and Services Tax
Please be advised that The Indian Government has announced a Goods and Services Tax (GST) that will impact import and export clearance, effective July 1, 2017. India-based shippers and consignees will need to comply with the new changes by providing some additional data to GST Network and Customs before Custom clearance for all Non Doc shipments.

Details about GST can be found on the following website:

This is a significant nationwide change in India's tax policies, and some modifications will occur over the next few months.

Please note the following:
GST Identification Number
To comply with the new rules and payment of GST, every India importer and exporter must have a GSTIN (GST Identification Number), which needs to be provided to DHL India before any shipment is imported or exported. Shippers and consignees in India can visit for a one-time update of their GSTIN for Customs clearance.

Duties and taxes

  • Bona fide samples up to a value of INR10,000 (approx. USD155) will continue to have a duty exemption. The content of the sample (s) must be well defined.
  • Gifts are expected to be charged the GST as per the preliminary interpretation of rules. This is being reviewed by a logistics industry association; we will provide more information when received.


Accurate ZIP / Postal code on the waybill and shipper invoice becomes even more important for GST compliance.
