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 Gandhi.
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.
Mobile phones and the internet are having a massive impact in India so we do often see sim cards being shipped via courier to India.
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 to India for repair, there is no import duty required. India also gives a pass to shipments that are for theatrical productions, filmmaking 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.

Courier reached before the time. I am so happy with service.
You did much better this time I was very pleasantly surprised to receive my documents in the time stipulated. Well done indeed
Good courier service.
First thing I did weight my parcel it was under 10 kg but still I have to pay extra charges for 2 kg which in unacceptable .becos i weight. During booking I have been told it will deliver 24 Jan but it still not deliver .how can we believe it was over weight parcel . Making pepole full ..will never use this service again
Well.. Im not really sure where the blame lies at the moment but on 22 Dec I sent a parcel to India which was received on 6 Jan. Problem is, when the receiver opened the parcel every single one of the 8 items was gone. And replaced with a holdall bag. There were 8/9 gifts in this parcel and my friend received none. Just the greetings card and a bag. Obviously it is very upsetting as these were personal items. None of what I sent was on the prohibited list. I have contacted the Indian parcel courier ( DTDC) and awaiting a reply. So so wrong for people to just take other peoples gifts. Would anyone happen to know how I contact Indian customs. Incase it was taken from there. Ive tried to find on Google but cant find what Im looking for. Thanks in advance
Nice and easy as always.
Parcel reached safely on time.
