No more gifts. Govt plans to scrap e-comm ‘gifts’ to curb China imports
Deal Expired

Now policy-wise we’re planning in such a way that the gift word itself is removed,” said the official. “The policy can say clearance sought as gift is not permitted, or in other words, whatever you’re importing you need to pay duties and clear it.”

45%+ GST is not enough
Wrongly marked gift packages are already being charged based on the source. Now they are after gift imports too (Genuine cases).
If “China Imports” itself is the issue, what’s there to scrap the “gift imports” concept entirely? Why not restrict it? No resources to do so? Or they don’t want to make the lazy customs officials do their job effectively?
