In exercise of the powers conferred by section 157 of the Customs Act, 1962 (52 of 1962), read with section 18 of the said Act, and in supersession of the Customs (Provisional Duty Assessment) Regulations, 1963, except as respects things done or omitted to be done before such supersession, the Central Board of Excise and Customs hereby makes the following regulations, namely:-

1. Short title and commencement.-

(2) They shall come into force on the date of their publication in the Official Gazette.

2.  Conditions for allowing provisional assessment.-

 

(1) Where-

    a)              an importer or an exporter, as the case may be, is unable to make self-assessment under sub-section (1) of section 17 of the Customs Act, 1962 (52 of 1962) and makes a request in writing to the proper officer for assessment; or

    b)             the proper officer on account of any of the grounds specified in sub-section (1) of section 18 of the said Act, is not able to verify the self-assessment or make re-assessment of the duty on the imported goods or the export goods, as the case may be,

 

he shall make an estimate of the duty to be levied (hereinafter referred to as the provisional duty).

(2)        If the importer or the exporter, as the case may be, executes a bond in an amount equal to the difference between the duty that may be finally   assessed or re-assessed and the provisional duty and deposits with the proper officer such sum not exceeding twenty per cent of the provisional duty, as the proper officer may direct, the proper officer may assess the duty on the goods provisionally at an amount equal to the provisional duty.

3. Terms of the bond.-

(1)        Where provisional assessment is allowed on request of the importer or the exporter, as the case may be, the bond referred to in regulation 2 shall contain an undertaking that he shall pay the deficiency, if any, between the duty finally assessed or re-assessed, as the case may be, and the duty provisionally assessed.

(2)        Where provisional assessment is allowed pending the completion of any test or enquiry, the bond referred to in regulation 2 shall contain an undertaking that he shall pay the deficiency, if any, between the duty finally assessed or reassessed, as the case may be, and the duty provisionally assessed.

(3)    Where provisional assessment is allowed pending the production of any document or furnishing of any information by the importer or the exporter, as the case may be, the bond referred to in regulation shall contain an undertaking that he shall produce such document or information within one month or within such extended period as the proper officer may allow, and the person executing the bond shall pay the deficiency, if any, between the duty finally assessed or re-assessed, as the case may be,  and the duty provisionally assessed.
