Import: To streamline import of automotive lubricants, the Department of Trade has made it mandatory to avail a separate licence for import of lubricants.
According to trade officials, enterprises and automobile workshops have been importing and supplying various brands of lubricants without a valid trade license, which is not allowed.
The department has requested regional revenue and customs offices in border towns to clear the import of lubricants only on the production of a separate “trade license for lubricants only.”
Officiating director Dophu Tshering said project authorities and agencies would not be allowed to award lubricant tenders to enterprises other than certified dealers. Importing directly from manufacturing companies or purchasing from the open market in India is not encouraged, according to the department.
