Importing to India requires adherence to the country's rules and regulations and importation rules are administered by the Central Board of Excise and Customs. 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:
If you’re sending a gift to India, gifts of up to Rs 5,000 intended for personal use are exempt from customs duties.
The Government has been considering removing the duty exemption for gifts, due to some online retailers misusing it for duty-free imports to India, but currently, if you’re sending a gift to someone living in India that's valued at Rs 5000 or less, it’s duty-free.
Some items do not require any additional import tax. For defective items that 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.
