Canberra, 10 July 1965

No. CAN/26/1/62

Sir,
I have the honour to refer to the Agreement between the Government of India and the Government of the Commonwealth of Australia relating to Air Services dated 11th July, 1949, as modified by the Notes exchanged at New Delhi on l4th December, 1960.

Following the recent correspondence between our two Governments concerning the customs arrangements under the said Agreement, the Government of India now proposes that Article VI of the Agreement be amended to read as follows :

(A) The provisions of Article 24 of the Convention apply between the Contracting Parties as if they were incorporated in the Agreement.

(B) Fuel, lubricating oils, spare parts, regular equipment and aircraft stores on board aircraft of the designated airline of one Contracting Party on arrival in the territory of the other Contracting Party, or taken on board those aircraft in that territory, and not unloaded from the aircraft without the consent of the customs authorities, if intended solely for use by or in aircraft of that airline in the operation of the agreed services, shall, subject to the latter Contracting Party, be exempted from customs duties, inspection fees or similar charges imposed in the territory of the latter Contracting Party, even though the supplies are used in or consumed by aircraft on flights in that territory.

(C) If, in the opinion of one of the Contracting Parties, the administration of regulations relating to customs, immigration, quarantine and similar matters in the territory of the other Contracting Party imposes an onerous burden on its designated airlines in the operation of the air services pursuant to this Agreement, the other Contracting Party shall, upon request, enter into consultation with it to examine the situation.

If the Government of the Commonwealth of Australia accept this proposal, I have the honour to suggest that this Note and your reply to that effect should be regarded as constituting an Agreement between our two Governments which shall enter into force on the date of your reply.

I avail myself of the opportunity to express to you, Sir, the assurances of my highest consideration.
