Notice of non-loading or re-landing and return of duty thereon
134. (1) If any goods mentioned in a bill of export or manifest be not loaded or be loaded and afterwards re-landed, the owner shall before the expiration of fifteen clear working days after the conveyance on which such goods were intended to be loaded or from which they were re-landed has left the customs-station, give information of such short-loading or re-landing to the appropriate officer save where the latter has occasioned the short-loading or re-landing.
(2) Upon an application being made to the appropriate officer within one year of such short-loading or re-landing any duty levied upon goods not loaded or upon goods loaded and afterwards re-landed shall be refunded to the person on whose behalf such duty was paid:
Provided that, where the required information of short-loading or re-landing is not given within the aforesaid period of fifteen days, the appropriate officer may make refund of duty contingent upon payment of such penalty, if any, as he may see fit to impose.
