Main Country Facts
India has been an extremely important trade partner for the United Kingdom for centuries. The Asian nation has the seventh-largest area of any country in the world. In addition, its 1.2 billion population creates the second-largest citizen-base in the world, with no other democratic country beating its numbers. While India's wealth was claimed by Britain for over a century, the country became independent in 1947 after the now-famous non-violence campaign led by Mahatma Ghandi.
India ranks number ten when measuring the nominal GDP of the country. However, only three countries can claim a higher purchasing power than India. India is a nuclear nation and has a strong military force. The country operates as a federal constitutional republic with a governing parliament. India has a wide variety of political competition, with at least six viable political parties. India is friendly with most nations, including the United Kingdom; most conflicts the country engages in are with their Asian neighbours. India has partnered specifically with France, Israel, the European Union and the United States to protect their interests.
Since the early 1990s, India has had an open economic policy. Strong industries include the service sector, agriculture and industry. India ranks fifteenth in world-wide imports, making it a crucial market for shipping. India is known for its strong production of cotton, fabric, steel, potatoes, chemicals, cement and oil.
India has long been closely connected with the United Kingdom, making trade between the two nations important. Still, importing to India requires adherence to the country's rules and regulations.
Importation rules are administered by the Central Board of Excise and Customs which publishes the website found here: http://www.cbec.gov.in/cae1-english.htm. While their website is full of information, be prepared to dig a bit to determine exactly what items can and cannot be moved. As a member of the World Customs Organisation, the importation process is fairly quick and straightforward.
India prohibits specific items and products from entering the country. This list includes:
Some items can only be shipped by specific importers; these items include rice, oil and many cereal grains.
Other items are restricted by the Indian government, and licensing or permission is necessary to move them into India. Restricted shipments include:
do not require an additional import tax. In addition, if defective items are shipped into India for repair, there is no import duty required. India also gives a pass to shipments that are for theatrical productions, film making and mountaineering expeditions. Some engineering prototypes and commercial samples can also be sent without paying duty tax. Gifts remain exempt only if it is a personal shipment sent by regular post and the value does not go over INR 10,000.
We also have information regarding Burma, China and Bangladesh in the region.
Have used to send documents to India. Very good value for money. Costs slightly more than royal mail international signed for - but faster, reliable and trackable.
I paid for a 2-4 days service but it was a total shambles as I was not able to print a document to scan at the drop off point nor was I able to access my account due to technical issues at purchase. Finally I had to go to the office of PM and give the parcel over but the lady there did her best for me. I am told the parcel has still not been received. I do hope by the deadline of the 11 Nov it will be there otherwise I am going to expect compensation.
No issues and it went like clockwork :-)
Good and speed to India
Great service,pick up on time & delivered on Time.
Parcel sent to India arrived on time. Good service as always.
Delivered on time and reasonably priced. Will use again.
The website was user friendly however the service was stated as 2-4 days and my parcel still hasnt been delivered and we are now on the 5 days with still no delivery date in mind. I used the faster service as my package needed to be delivered on the 4th day and this has failed. On that note I am only giving the site 3 stars.
