Before any parcel or shipment is delivered to or from India, it must pass through customs first. At customs, the officials check its KYC documents to identify the validity of the parcel and give it clearance. The documents are categorised according to organisational level of either the sender or receiver of the parcel.
The onus is on either the sender or the receiver to provide these documents for the customs officials, otherwise the commodities are trapped away by the customs officials resulting in delays.
Parcel World requires all its clients to provide KYC documents when sending their parcels to rule out any delays like those mentioned above.
