1. The particulars of the organisation, functions and duties: -

a) Background :

In the pre-independence era, a Tariff Board existed in the Ministry of Commerce “to advise the Government on measures required for protection of domestic industry”. This was converted into a Commission by The Tariff Commission Act 1951. The main functions of the Commission were to undertake various studies and recommend to the Government, requisite measures for protecting Indian industries, necessary reduction in customs and excise duties in respect of specific industries and remedial measures against dumping of goods. The Commission also undertook suo-moto studies.

The Tariff Commission set up in 1951 under the Ministry of Finance was wound up in 1976 by the Tariff Commission (Repeal) Act of 1976 based on the observation of the Second Fiscal Commission that the functions of the Commission were largely similar to those of the Bureau of Industrial Costs and Prices (BICP) which was set up in 1970 on the recommendation of the Administrative Reforms Commission. The BICP was bifurcated in August 1997 and the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) was carved out and placed under the Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers.

In 1991-92, the then Finance Minster in his Budget Speech said,

“…I believe that the time has come to evolve a more transparent institutional mechanism for fixing tariffs and domestic prices in sectors where there might still be need for protecting Indian industry against foreign competition and for the determination of administered prices, particularly in the area of public utilities. For this purpose, we propose to restructure the Bureau of Industrial Costs & Prices and to transform it into a Tariff Commission.”

Further in 1996-97, the then Finance Minister said in his Budget Speech of 1996-97.

“… In keeping with the promises made in the Common Minimum Programme (CMP) … Government have initiated action to set up an independent Tariff Commission.”

The present Commission was established on 2nd  September 1997. In 1999, the BICP alongwith its core functions was merged with the Tariff Commission.

b) Organisation

The Commission is headed by a full time Chairman of the rank and pay of  Secretary to the Government of India and assisted by Member Secretary. in the rank and pay of  Additional Secretary to the Government of India. There is also a provision of two part-time members to be drawn from persons of eminence from relevant fields including, finance, economics, industry, commerce and science & technology.

The Commission has three specialised functional divisions in the areas of Economics, ‘Science & Technology’ and ‘Finance & Costing’. In addition, it has got Administrative, Secretariat and Electronic Data Processing branches to provide Administrative, Secretariat and EDP support respectively. The Administrative branch consists of sections dealing with Establishment, General Administration, Cash, Hindi, Vigilance, Court Cases, Training, Library and other miscellaneous administrative matters. The Secretariat branch provides all in-house requisite secretariat support on various matters including those pertaining to the completed and on-going studies. The Electronic Data Processing Unit deals with all matters pertaining to Information Technology inter-alia including uploading and updating of the information on the Website, providing support to the officers of the Commission on Computer related matters including procurement of computers.
