Customs Officials to Quiz Importers on FTA claims

According to a provision proposed in the latest budget, Indian Custom Officials can now ask importers about imported goods. The provision is applicable to all imports that have happened within the past five-years under the Free Trade Agreement. According to the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence, it will help Indian Custom Officials curb instances of false claims for FTA benefits. India’s deficit has dropped from $148.2 billion in April-December 2018 to $118.1 billion in April-December 2019. The rules of origin serve as criteria to determine the origin country of any imported product. The information will be used by the Indian Custom Officials to determine if FTA claims are legitimate or not. According to the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI), the use of fake documents has been on the rise. Importers often show fake documents to change the origin country to take advantage of India’s trade pact laws. However, industry experts are not happy about the decision by the Indian custom officials. It could lead to harassment even for legitimate importers. The move comes in the wake of the Indian government trying to curb imports in the country by introducing stricter norms. Industry representatives have called the move protectionist citing low utilization of FTAs in the first place.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
