The expression "customs waters" is used in section 115 of that Act. The expression "land frontiers" is used in sections 105 and 109 of the Customs Act, 1962. The expression "customs barriers" has been used in the case-law, including the second Travancore case (as reported in the Supreme Court Reports), and the expression "customs frontiers" also occurs in some of the reported cases under the Central Sales Tax Act.
