I had voluntarily declared all the items that I'd lawfully purchased from Dubai and was ready to pay whatever duties needed to be paid. As a matter of fact, the customs department had asked for all purchase documents which were submitted; however, customs is doing the proper valuation for duty which I've already confirmed to pay" posted Pandya.
