As per UPU regulations, it is mandatory to attach duly filled-in Customs Declaration form to each and every outward International Mail item.
If the requisite Customs Declaration form is not attached to an International Mail item, it can result not only in delay in delivery of such item but also return by Customs Authorities at the stage of Customs Examination.
Foreign Postal Administrations have also reported receipt of International Mail items booked in India to which duly filled-in Customs Declaration forms were not attached. Ensure that duly filled-in Customs Declaration forms (as mentioned below) are attached to the International Mail items while being accepted for booking:
1. Letters / LCAO - CN 22 (for declared value up to Rs 26,000/-)
- CN 23(for declared value above Rs 26,000/-)
2. Parcels - CP 72
