Why the prohibition on Perishables and Chemicals


Q.  Why there is a prohibition for import of chemicals and perishable goods even of low value?

A. It is not convenient to handle perishable goods through normal courier mode. The system of import or export of goods through courier is designed for very fast movement through the Customs. The chemicals imported may require testing of the same to ascertain its identity which would need some time and would also delay the processing other consignments through courier. Therefore, the import of chemicals have  been prohibited through courier route.
