The jurisdiction of the Commissionerate has been divided into several Divisions headed by Assistant Commissioners. Since the work is mainly concentrated on Indo-Nepal border, the Custom(Prev.) Divisions have been created at Motihari, Muzaffarpur, Forbesganj and Patna, for controlling the normal trade and transit of goods. The Assistant Commissioners have been posted at LCS, at Raxaul and Jogbani.

In Bihar two main LCS are functioning for the trade and transit facilities on Indo-Nepal border i.e., Raxaul and Jogbani. However, more than 70% of such work is being carried out by LCS Raxaul alone.

There are in all 9 LCS on Indo-Nepal border for controlling the trade between India and Nepal. The Customs(Prev.) Divisions have been further divided into 15 circles and 11 units.
