Further in Kiran Shipping Mills v Collector of Customs8 warehouse goods, the customs barrier would be crossed when they are sought to be taken out of customs and brought to the mass of country.

The passenger has to declare the contents of his baggage in the prescribed Indian Customs Declaration Form At airports the passenger has the option of seeking clearance through the Green Channel or through the Red Channel subject to the nature of goods being carried.

For the purpose of Customs clearance of arriving passengers, a two channel system has been adopted i Green Channel for passengers not having any dutiable goods. No duty on pilfered goods. If any imported goods are pilfered goods after the unloading thereof and before the proper officer has made an order for clearance for home consumption or deposited in warehouse, such importer shall not be liable to pay the duty leviable on such goods.

However, where such goods are restored to the importer after pilferage, the importer becomes liable to duty. Conditions to be satisfied for the exemption on duty: 1. The imported goods should have been pilfered 2.

The pilfered should have occurred after the goods are unloaded, but before the proper officer makes the order of clearance for the home consumption or for the deposit into warehouse. The pilfered goods should not have restored back to the importer. Circumstance in which pilfered can be claimed: In order to claim pilfered the following conditions should exist: 1. There should be evidence for tempering with package 2. There should be blank space for the articles in the package and 3.

Missing articles should be unit articles. However, in some circumstances, it may so happen that the pilferage may be observed only at the time of removal of goods by the importer.

In such case, the order for clearance, or the case may be, for bonding would already have passed. Therefore the importer has to ask for the service either by steamer agent or by the insurance surveyor and the report issue by them would form the basis of claiming remission.

As in such circumstances, the duty would already have been paid.

The remissions allowed in the form of refund. Merit considerations: 1. If the goods are pilfered after the order of clearance is made but before the goods are actually cleared, duty is leviable 2.

Section 13 deals with only pilferage.

Provision of section 13 would not apply if it can be shown that pilferage took place prior to the unloading of goods. In Bharat Earth Movers Ltd v Commissioner of Customs,13 in case of pilferage only section 13 applies and claim of refund under section 23 is not permissible.

Section 13 applies to the goods which are under the custody of custodian under section The goods, even though the custodian appointed by the collected by the collector, are held by him for the purpose of custom formalities.

Section 13 and Section 45 are independent provisions. It is important to note that port trust authority is the custodian of imported goods. Section 13 enables the Government to collect duty on the goods which are pilfered goods from importer.

Thus Section 45 enables the Government to collect the tax from the custodians of cargo.

Under section 42 of the Port Trust Act, the Board has got power to take the different services from any other authority or other person. Also section 43 of the Port Trust Act, provides that Board will not be liable for the destruction or loss of goods if no such receipt is provided by the Board. According to section 45 of the Custom Act, the person having custody of goods is made liable to pay duty for the pilferage of goods.

Thus, the imported goods unloaded in a customs area of the Port Trust came to their possession not as an approved person under the Customs Act, It will not be possible to hold that the Port Trust is an approved person or can be notified as an approved person.

The person referred to in section 45 1 of the Custom Act, , thereof can only be the person approved by the Commissioner of Customs. It excludes a body of persons who by virtue of a law for the time being in force is entrusted with the custody of goods by incorporation of law under another enactment, i.

Thus the liability to pay duty is on the importer of the goods. So long as the goods are in the customs area, the goods shall remain in the custody of such person as may be approved by the Collector of Customs.

Thus it can be said that any imported goods are pilfered. Hence, under section 13 of customs Act, the importer need not to pay customs duty on pilfered goods but port thrust authority or export authority have to such custom duty. As per section 13 of customs Act, , if any goods are pilfered after the unloading thereof and before the proper officer has made an order for clearance for home consumption or deposit in a warehouse, the importer shall not be liable to pay the duty leviable on such goods.
