Security and prosperity to our nation which is at stake now

AN EFFORT TO FIRST REFORM THE INDIAN CUSTOMS FIELD FORMATIONS TO ENSURE SECURITY AND PROSPERITY TO OUR NATION

The maintenance of the security of India is the first and foremost purpose listed u/s 11 to prohibit importation or exportation of goods. Customs plays an important role as border controlling agency.  The customs is obligated and mandated to function more or less as defence forces 24 x 7 in the entire border.  Global Financial Integrity’s Illicit financial flow (IFF) reports reveal that there is a whopping outflow of  >Rs. 2000 crores  every day from India.

Indian Customs could not stop even a fraction of the illicit outflow inspite of efforts such as the Tax Administration Reform Commission (TARC). It is because root cause analysis (RCA) has not been done suitably.  Failures of the officers of customs in the field formations who are responsible for implementation of the customs law and procedures escaped their notice, because the actions of the Customs Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) and those connected with foreign trade is opaque on account of  vaguely worded or archaic law and procedures. 

These articles, on selected sections of the Customs Act, 1962, throw the brightest possible light on the last mile customs law enforcement and help those in policy making to set things right to ensure security and prosperity to our nation which is at stake now.
