Following US President Donald Trump and the US administration voicing its displeasure over high import duties charged by India on bikes made and exported from US markets, the Government of India has slashed Custom’s Duty on imported bikes.
The import of bikes with engine capacity of less than 800cc used to attract 60% duty while those of 800cc and above used to attract 75% duty. The government has now rationalized Custom’s Duty structure to 50% across range for imported bikes. However, for Completely Knocked Down (CKD) units, duty has been raised from 10% to 15% and for Completely Built engines (CBU) from 20% to 25%.
