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.
Fantastic service in the UK. The status updates from DTDC India could be better
I used parcel monkey to send a parcel overseas. It was the first time I have ever done this and I was told the parcel would reach there on a specific date. Turns out information given to me was 100% accurate. The only reason I have not given a 5 star review is because this is the first time I have used them. Will definitely use parcel monkey again if I need to send a parcel somewhere.
Perfect timing and will be happy to use next time
The only issue was with DPDs tracker which did not give accurate details on the final destination.
Really happy with the service. Would def use them again
