  1. Hello sir,

    We are planning to import few machines to manufacture solar PV modules in India. Is there any import duty exemption currently available for us? Or any other things to be taken care of before importing?

    • Import of Machine for initial setting up of solar power projects is exempted from Additional Custom Duty and the total custom duty leviable has come down from 9.35% to 5.15%. Rest depends on the country you are importing from. You can check the policies of “ministry of heavy industries and public enterprises”.
