 Eastern Book Company — Practical Lawyer
The word "octroi" originating from the French word "octroyer" means "to grant" and in its original use meant "an import" or "a toll" or "a town duty" on goods brought into a town.
It would, however, be seen that the word "octroi" has not been used in our Constitution; instead it refers to taxes on entry of goods into a local area for any of the three purposes mentioned in Entry 52 List II, which in common parlance has come to be known as octroi.
Therefore, whether octroi is leviable on goods brought into the octroi area or not depends on the meaning of the key words "consumption, use or sale therein".

 THE OCTROI DE MER: BOUYANT IN THE WAKE OF THE FREE MOVEMENT OF GOODS [FRENCH AND EU LAW], 04/06/05, Aleko
Yet the tax always had a munificent objective: the terrestrial octroi was levied at the entrances to cities whose other revenues were not sufficient to cover their public needs.
Though the octroi de mer was not applied in the same way, since the French colonies were at the time governed by private companies who could spend the revenues they gained from the octroi de mer as they saw fit, the principle was the same.
Not least because it was the exclusions to the octroi de mer rather than the octroi de mer itself whose lawfulness was in question these rulings were perhaps a somewhat uneccessary and unhelpful circumnavigation of the frontier between art.
