Department of Commerce; Import of Tea from Nepal

Instruction No. 25/2021-Customs Dated November 24th, 2021

The Department of Commerce received several communications regarding import of tea from Nepal as “Darjeeling Tea”, which is adversely impacting the interests of the domestic Darjeeling Tea Planters. As per the provisions of the Tea (Distribution & Export) Control Order, 2005, any importer importing tea from Nepal needs to have a license and should also have a clearance certificate issued by the Tea Council.

Now, it is provided by CBIC that valid certificate issued by the Tea Board under the Tea (Distribution & Export) Control Order, 2005 is also required besides the clearance certificate issued by the Tea Council of India, prior to allowing import of tea from Nepal.
