出口印度再添阻碍！玩具、纺织、鞋类、电子等350种商品增加收费！Obstacles to export to India! Toys, textiles, footwear, electronics and other 350 kinds of goods increase fees!
随着印度经济下行，政府正在力推“Make in India”政策，发展国内制造业。12月3日，消息称，印度将对350种被视为“非必需品”的商品增加进口费用。
6月，孟买海关查获了约500件Sino India Etail公司的快递（该公司是中国电商平台SheIn上的官方印度卖家，主要销售服装和电子产品），并且还查封了公司的仓库。海关给出的理由是，申报的金额过低，并且错误申报。孟买的海关也已经将此信息同步到了管理避税的国家风险管理门户，提醒其他海关也注意此类情况。随后，印度海关全境停止快递清关，中国卖家大批货物被卡海关，苦不堪言。
今年早些时候，RSS 联盟 Swadeshi Jagran Manch 和社交平台 LocalCircles 已致函印度财政部，强调中国电商运营商逃税的行为，与印度当地同行形成了低价竞争优势。
Obstacles to export to India! Toys, textiles, footwear, electronics and other 350 kinds of goods increase fees!
Worried about the impact on various industries in the country, in early November, India officially announced that it would not join the RCEP (Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement).
Why did you shrink back? An important reason is that if the agreement is signed, India will gradually reduce tariffs on 80% of Chinese products, and also reduce tariffs on other countries. 2. Tariff reduction and exemption for Korean goods.
According to Indian media reports, Indian Prime Minister Modi has explained in the country that RCEP will cause damage to the interests of India's "farmers, traders, professionals, industries, workers and consumers". For example, Indian farmers worry that dairy products from Australia and New Zealand will have an impact; Indian factory owners worry that cheap industrial products from China will "inundate" the Indian market.
Trade protection intensifies
As India ’s economy declines, the government is pushing for a “Make in India” policy to develop domestic manufacturing. On December 3, the source said that India would increase import fees for 350 types of goods deemed "non-essential."

It is reported that India has established a specific list, including toys, electronics and textiles. In addition, India will add a "quality check" for these products.
The Indian government's first step will be the quality control of toys. In India ’s $ 1.5 billion toy market, products from China account for 90%. This measure may be to restrict Chinese products from entering the Indian market and protect domestic industries.
It is reported that the samples will be randomly selected from each batch of goods and sent to the laboratory for testing, and the customs will fulfill the quality inspection requirements according to the testing situation. Obviously, it has not thought about giving the relevant enterprises a transition period. This will cause many production enterprises in China to be unable to adjust production and shipment in a timely manner. Failure to comply with the new regulations will not result in customs clearance in India and may even be destroyed at the expense of the importer. Some Chinese enterprises have learned that they have stopped shipping related products to India.
Official notification from India
The Indian government also believes that increasing import tariffs on televisions and mobile phones will boost domestic manufacturing, with electronics accounting for most of India's trade deficit.
Cross-border e-commerce encounters ambush
The Indian e-commerce market has huge potential. According to Statista statistics, the Indian e-commerce market size reached US $ 16.07 billion in 2016 and US $ 20.06 billion in 2017. It is expected to reach US $ 25.08 billion in 2018, showing a growth rate of over 25% It is estimated that by 2022, India's e-commerce market will exceed 50 billion U.S. dollars.
However, in terms of policy control, India is becoming stricter. India will step up its review of e-commerce imports and is also moving forward with the revision of its e-commerce regulations.
In the middle of this year, China's cross-border e-commerce sellers encountered a large-scale ambush from India.
In June, Mumbai Customs seized about 500 courier deliveries from Sino India Etail (the company is an official Indian seller on Chinese e-commerce platform SheIn, which sells clothing and electronics), and also sealed the company's warehouse. The reason given by the customs is that the declared amount is too low and the declaration is wrong. Mumbai's customs have also synchronized this information to the national risk management portal that manages tax avoidance, reminding other customs to pay attention to such situations. Subsequently, the Indian customs stopped express delivery across the country, and a large number of goods from Chinese sellers were blocked by customs.
In August, the Indian government asked the customs and post offices to focus on carefully considering the volume of sales transactions. DPIIT (Industrial and Internal Trade Promotion Agency) issued written notices to ports from across India asking for careful verification of the goods to determine if they were truly "gifts." Under Indian law, Indians are not required to pay tax as long as they send gifts worth Rs 5,000 or less.
In fact, this storm has begun from the end of 2018. At the time, the Indian government accused Chinese e-commerce sellers such as Club Factory and SheIn of sending gifts to Indian consumers in the form of "gifts" to evade taxes.
India believes that ordering products from sites like Amazon is not a big problem-they pay duties and taxes when they buy them. However, many importers or distributors on Indian e-commerce websites use various methods such as transshipment to evade tariffs, and the actual value of the goods is not reported truthfully.
Earlier this year, the RSS alliance Swadeshi Jagran Manch and the social platform LocalCircles have written to the Indian Ministry of Finance, emphasizing the tax evasion behavior of Chinese e-commerce operators and forming a low-cost competitive advantage with their local counterparts in India.
The latest data show that in the third quarter of this year, India ’s GDP growth rate was only 4.5%, a 6-year low, lower than the 5% in the second quarter; compared with the high of the second quarter of last year (8.2%) , It is even a sharp decline.
In the face of a sluggish export market, our suppliers must pay close attention to policy trends and avoid risks.
