New Delhi: All passengers coming to India will have to fill in a new detailed customs form on their arrival from January 1, 2014, according to official sources.

It will help authorities check duty frauds and cases of under-valuation as well keep a record of gold jewellery and bullion being brought into the country.

Also from January 1, Indian citizens will have to fill up immigration form only when they go out. There will not be any immigration form for Indians returning from abroad, the sources said.

The 'Indian Customs Declaration Form' carries additional fields for declaration of dutiable and prohibited goods and seeks details different from the detachable perforated strip which is part of the immigration card at the moment, they said.

For the first time, travellers would be asked to specifically declare any prohibited articles, gold jewellery (over free allowance), gold bullion and Indian currency exceeding 7,500 in the new form.
