Postal Imports

Remittances against bills received for collection in respect of imports by post parcel may be made by authorised dealers, provided the goods imported are such as are normally despatched by post-parcel. In these cases the relative parcel receipts must be produced as evidence of dispatch through the post and on undertaking to submit importers should furnish post parcel wrappers within three months from the date of remittance.

If the parcel has already been received in India, the parcel wrapper should be produced in support of the remittance application. Where goods to be imported are not of a kind normally imported by post parcel or where authorised dealer is not satisfied about the bona fides of the applications the case should be referred to RBI for prior approval with full particulars together with relative parcel receipts/or wrappers.
