The GST Act has defined import of goods as bringing goods into India from abroad. Accordingly, all imports into India will be deemed as inter-state attracting IGST. In addition to the IGST, the import would also be subject to Customs Duties. Thus, when goods are imported into India, IGST would be applied on the value of the goods and collected along with Customs Duty. The Customs Tariff Act, 1975 has already been amended to provide for levy of integrated tax and the compensation cess on imported goods, in anticipation of the GST rollout.
