Specification about Octorai

What is Octroi?

The word Octroi has its roots in the French word Octroyer which is derived from a Latin word auctorizare, the literal meaning is a local tax collected on various articles brought into a district for consumption. As of 2008, Octroi is levied in Ethiopia and in only one state of India, (Maharashtra).It used to denote a tax levied on goods brought into town, and was collected at the city gates. Since this levy was imposed under Octroyer, that is, a royal grant, it was known as octrois, which later became Octroi. In modern usage Octroi is a local tax collected on articles brought into a town for local use by various local bodies like corporations, municipalities, zilla parishads, village panchayats etc. Levy of Octroi is based on the value, weight, length and number of articles. Basis of levy may vary from State to State or even between different local bodies within a State.


Municipal Corporation of Mumbai is known as Bruhanmumbai Municipal Corporation (Bmc) The BMC used to levy a tax called Town Duty since 1912 for all articles imported into the town limits irrespective of whether the articles brought in were to be consumed, used or sold within its limit or not. In 1965, Octroi a tax to be levied on specified articles at their time of entry into the limits of the Greater Bombay for consumption, use or sale was introduced. The Municipal Commissioner is empowered to frame rules, governing the procedures of levy, Assessment and collection of Octroi, refund and exemption.

  • In case the consignee imports the shipment into Mumbai for export on his own through rail, road, sea or air subsequently the N-form formality will have to be completed by consignee in case he wants exemption form Octroi
  • Incase for some reason the point of exit/export needs to be changed SLPL staff will have to file application for redirection paying the requisite fees.
