Please advice if anybody has taken 40"LED TV to India & how much custom duty too be paid at Delhi air
I have taken a 40 inch LED tv to Cochin airport and I paid 4000 Indian Rupees as customs duty as I was traveling alone,you can take an electronic goods worth 25000 INR without any taxes ,if you are going with your family You don't have to pay any taxes as the LED Priice will cover your family members allowance of 25000 INR per person
I think excess of 25k we need to pay 35% as duty if you travel alone
Last december i paid 2750 Rs @calicut airport for Sony LED internet Tv even with my family , they consider it as used tv to reduce the tax but u want to bargain them to make it as used tv even they know it is new one .They have updated list of of tvs and electronics thy=ey will check ur box and find the model and put price.
As per Indian customs rule, baggage allowance has been raised to INR 35,000.00 per person. As per rule, this will be considered individually, i.e whether you are traveling alone or not, it will not have any effect on the duty. So depending upon the officers, you may or may not be required to pay the duty if you are traveling with your family. The duty is calculated as (VALUE OF GOODS in INR(INDIAN MARKET)- 35,000)*36.05%. ie. if you are taking a 50,000 goods value item, you will have to pay (50000-35000)*36.05% = 5407 rs as duty. This is the legal calculation. Also some officers do consider the invoice, so try to bargain with your invoice, if duty is imposed.
