Violation of Asean Free Trade Agreement may Cost Sony Corp. INR 3 Billion in Duty

Sony Corp. is in the cross-hairs of a Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) investigation for allegedly violating the India-Asean free trade agreement to import goods from the group's overseas arms without paying appropriate duties, in the latest instance of a crackdown on corporates for abusing trade pacts. DRI officials had visited the company's office to recover documents. Sony's India arm has also been asked to furnish documents from suppliers and statements of officials has been recorded in the case, which officials say has a duty implication of about INR 3 billion. The investigations are centered on the import of televisions from Malaysia in a semi-knocked down condition by allegedly mis-declaring them as parts that attract concessional duties under the India-Asean free trade agreement. The Indo-Asean FTA offers concessional duty benefit to a large number of goods manufactured in the Asean region. However, all imports from Asean countries into India have to meet a mandatory 35% value addition norm in the Asean country from where they are exported to India. Without due value addition, India can deny duty benefits available to goods under the FTA.
