A Special counter veiling duty known as Additional Custom Duty (Special Additional Duty – SAD) at the rate of 4% and is leviable under sub-section (5) of Section 3 of the Customs Tariff Act, 1975 for all the imports to India. This is charged on the total value of imports including CIF + Basic Customs duty + CVD. This duty is to countervail sales tax leviable on the sale of goods in India. This gives a level playing field for the internally produced goods by the domestic industry.

This refund is known as SAD Refund in commercial parlance.
Any import trader who sold their goods in India without changing the good can claim SAD. The goods sold will have to be sold and either VAT/CST which ever is applicable should have been paid by the importer. The selling should happen within a year of import. Refund is not available to manufacturers who consume these goods in manufacturing process or are the end consumers of goods.
The cost can vary from 5% to 15% of the claim amount. It will depend on the claim amount and the amount of documents to be processed. The payment schedule is as follows, 20% on completion of the documentation, 30% on submission and 50% against the release order (RO).
