Interwing movement of goods.--The Federal Government in exercise of the powers conferred by Section 19 (now Section 16) of the Sea Customs Act issued Notification No. 66-C, dated 19th December, 1954 directing that except in accordance with and subject to the conditions of a permit issued by the Chief Controller of Imports and Exports no exposed cinematographic film of standard size (35 mm) of foreign origin, including film thereof, imported into the Provinces other than East Bengal shall be taken by sea, land or air out of such Province, and brought into East Bengal, nor shall any film or prints thereof, imported into East Bengal be so taken out and brought in the provinces other than East Bengal. The Customs Authorities in pursuance of the said Notification did not allow a film of Indian origin imported in East Pakistan to be taken to West Pakistan in the absence of any permit issued by the Chief Controller of Imports and Exports. The petitioner challenged the order of the Customs Authorities in the High Court. It was held that the trade between the two wings in regard to imported films had not been "prohibited" but "regulated" by the Notification. It was further held that the Notification did not interfere with the fundamental right of freedom, trade, business or profession as given by the Constitution of Pakistan, 1962 (PLD 1966 Dacca 138).

The interwing trade and movement of goods from one wing of the country to the other wing were also governed by the Interwing Trade Ordinance, 1964, the Imports and Exports (Control) Act, 1950 and the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act, 1947 etc.

"Books issued" by person, include books written as well as published by him.--The meanings given to the word "issue" is "that which proceeds from any source". The phrase "books issued by M.N. Roy" in the Notification issued under Section 19 (now Section 16) of the. Sea Customs Act would include books written by him as well as books published by him. (AIR 1937 Cal. 49).

Vague description.--Under the Act, the Central Government can prohibit export of specified articles or things but description of different commodities ejusdem generis under vague description, is not enough. (AIR 1915 Bom. 232 = 40 Bom. 301).

Import and Export of Currency--Indian Case Law.--The petitioner was travelling on board a ship from Colombo to Genoa with his car, on board the ship. The ship entered the port of Cochin en route. The petitioner was asked by the Customs Authorities to make a declaration as to the currency, foreign and Indian, he was carrying with him. He accordingly made a declaration that he had a certain amount in both currencies. The amount was found on his person. On a search being made of his car, a great deal of undeclared Indian and U.S.A. currency was found concealed in a secret chamber of the car. He was about to leave Cochin within a few hours and there was no intention on the part of the petitioner to land at Cochin. It was held that there was import and export of currency on the part of the petitioner. The petitioner imported and exported foreign currency in contravention of Section 19 (now Section 16) of the Sea Customs Act, read with Section 8 of the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act, 1947 and relevant Notification. Though the importation of Indian Currency did not contravene any provision of the law, its export was in contravention of Section 19. (AIR 1960-Ker. 170). Currency is included in the word "goods" as defined in Section 2 (I) of the Act.

Therefore where an attempt is made to export or import currency in contravention of the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act, the offender is liable under the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act as well as under the Customs Act. (AIR 1964 Cal. 347 + AIR 1954 Tripura 7).

Under the Act, there are no restrictions on the export of silver. Its export when allowed requires to be declared on form 'E' prescribed for export by the State Bank and the export proceeds are to be repatriated within the stipulated period.

20. Retention of Foreign Currency in Pakistan by Pakistani Residents.--In pursuance of Notification No. S.R.O. 1016(I)/79 dated the 17th October, 1979 issued by the Government of Pakistan, all persons resident in Pakistan, and all other persons who are is Pakistan, are permitted to retain in Pakistan any foreign currency held by them provided such foreign currency does not represent foreign exchange released from Pakistan for any purpose and foreign exchange which has been acquired as sale proceeds of goods exported from Pakistan, earnings of the residents on account of services, earnings/profits of the overseas offices/branches of Pakistan firms, companies and banks etc.

Horse-power.--Both the Government as well as the trade understood the expression "horse-power" in the Import Control Notification as meaning "brake horse-power only" and not "indicated horse-power". Though it was no doubt true that the question whether engines which were subject-matter of the proceedings were over 20 H.P. or not was a question of fact, the engines were admittedly capable of developing over 20 H.P. It was not stated in the Notification that it was the minimum horse-power that would be produced by an engine that determined the class under which it fell. In the absence of such indication an importer ought not to be penalized when in fact the goods which he imports, fall according to the trade into a category which are permitted to be imported, and the order of the Customs Authorities holding that the goods were not covered by the import licence was not, authorised by law (AIR 1955 Mad. 187) = ILR 1955 Mad. 1248 (DB).

Import of goods against expired licence.--Person importing pethidine injection ampoules under expired licence contravenes provisions of Section 7 of the Dangerous Drugs Act, 1930 and is guilty of offence under Section 13. Goods imported must cross customs frontier within period for which the licence is valid. (State vs. Rashid Ahmad PLD 1972 Kar. 51).

"By land" also includes "by air".--The words "by land" used in Section 19 of the Sea Customs Act, 1878 (now Section 16 of the Customs Act, 1969) include "by air" (PLD 1958 S.C. Pak. 118). Now words "by air" have been specifically incorporated in Section 16 of the present Act.

Taking of goods across Customs frontier.--(Position under Section 19 of the Sea Customs Act).--Owing to the peculiar geographical position where the two wings of the country are about 1200 miles apart with the foreign territory of India intervening (as the position prior to fall of Dacca in December, 1971), the taking of goods by land or air from one wing of Pakistan to another necessarily involves the crossing of the Customs frontier. The scheduled route, by which the Orient Airways Plane was to take the appellant with the gold, was across that frontier and would infringe the Notification, if it was to be taken without permit. (PLD 1958 S.C. (Pak.) 118).

Determination of legality of a Notification by a Court of Law.--Court has no jurisdiction to determine legality of a Notification issued under this section. The bar provided by Section 226 of the Government of India Act, 1935, is absolute, and the Court could not go into the question whether the Notification was within the scope of the section or not (PLD 1955 Sind 397). But under the present Constitution vires of a Notification issued or the Rules framed under an Act can be judged.

Vehicles imported on "Carnet-de-passage".--The entire object of the concessions under the International Convention known as Customs Convention on temporary importation of private road vehicles being to facilitate development of international touring. The scope of the articles contained therein has to be appreciated in the context of that object. A reference to the articles of the convention indicates that the concession is limited to the personal and private use of the car by its non-resident importer or non-resident third person duly authorised by the holder of the importation papers. Consequently use of a car imported under "Triptyque" or "Carnet-de-passage" concession by person not normally resident outside Pakistan amounts to violation of Articles 2(I) and 11 (I) of the Customs Convention, for breach of the conditions relating to re-export within the stipulated period. The vehicles will be deemed to be imported in contravention of the Customs Act and the vehicle so imported is liable to be forfeited under the Customs Act (AIR 1962 Mad. 404).

Buyer of a Registered car--Liability to pay duty.--See Notes under Section 18.

Import licence.--An import licence obtained by misrepresentation does not make the licence non est, with the result that the goods should be deemed to have been imported without licence. Assuming that the principles of law of contract apply to the issue of a licence under the Act, a licence obtained by fraud is only voidable; it is good till voided in the manner prescribed by law. (AIR 1962 S. C. 1893).

Breach of condition of the licence.--A power to issue a licence includes the power to impose conditions in respect of such licence either generally or individually. A licence-holder acting upon a licence issued by the Chief Controller, subject to express conditions, is acting in contravention of the law and inviting sanctions if he fails to comply with the express condition contained in the licence. (PLD 1966 S.C. 201).

Penalty after producing clearance permit.--The clearance permit issued without prejudice to any other action means the waiver of confiscation of the goods only. Personal penalty can be imposed upon importer or exporter who imports or exports goods in breach of the prohibition or restriction though the imports and exports authorities have issued clearance permit (PLD 1979 Lah. 246).

Penalty for import of reconditioned machinery which is prohibited.--The Supreme Court refused to interfere where penalty was imposed on the import of reconditioned machinery which was a prohibited item when the penalty was reduced by the Central Board of Revenue (NLR 1982 S. C.J 267).

When the Customs Authority is not clear about the classification of the goods.--When the Customs Department itself is not clear as to classification by Imports and Export Authority of disputed item allegedly imported without valid licence, then the Customs Authority is required to make a reference to competent authority under the Imports and Exports (Control) Act, 1950 for classification of item in question instead of taking inconsistent pleas. Penalty in such cases cannot be imposed (1982 P. Cr. L.J. 258).

Prohibition must exist on the date of offence.--It is not difficult to believe that some of the goods which are including in the category of imported goods may not so remain tomorrow owing to a change in the import policy. Therefore, it is necessary for the Customs Authorities to prove that import or export of an article was prohibited at the time when the offence was committed by contravening the order of prohibition. Any subsequent order of prohibition would not prove the guilt of the accused (PLD 1968 Lah. 1183 = PLR 1969 (I) W.P. 454 = 19 DLR (WP) 39 =20 DLR (WP) 301).

Export.--Except to the extent of prohibition or restrictions by an order made under the Imports and Exports (Control) Act, the export of any goods out of country is not prohibited. Where the export of a commodity is not absolutely prohibited, a person holding an export permit may export it with impunity as there is no prohibition upon him on exporting that commodity. (AIR 1961 Bom. 234 (DB).

Offences and penalties.--See Clauses (8) and (9) of Section 156(I).
