Federation of Indian Export Organizations has informed the Indian government that in a retaliatory move customs authorities at Chinese ports are holding back Indian consignments. It pointed out that customs authorities at Indian ports had ordered examination of Chinese consignments without any official word from the government and this had led to retaliatory measures from the government in China. FIEO said “While the Indian government has said that there is no official communication, the examination of consignments from China is leading to the piling up of imports and in response Indian exporters have complained that customs authorities at Chinese ports are holding back export consignments.”

He added "We have been given to understand that customs is physically examining all imports from China which is delaying clearance, adding to the cost of imports. We have found that at Chennai and Mumbai ports, Indian customs are opening and checking all containers of China, although there is no written instruction or circular from CBIC regarding that."

The unofficial checking of consignments from China at Indian ports comes in the wake of the deterioration of Sino-Indian relations since the clash of the military forces of both countries at the border early this month, resulting in casualties for both sides.
