Customs/Import Duty on Camera ordered from abroad?


Super User
I was checking B&H website and they have some pretty good deals on the camera systems and priced less than here.
So if I order from them, will the item attract Customs/Import duty? and how much will such duties be?
Did anyone order anything like this?

Yes, it would attract custom duty if you're getting it here through a courier company. If someone is bringing it undeclared, then it will likely go through without a hitch.

As for custom duty rates, here you go Indian Custom Duty | Import Duty Chapter 90 | Optical, photographic, cinematographic, measuring, checking, precision, medical or surgical instruments and apparatus; parts and accessories thereof..
This is a lot ](*,)

Say for purchase of 70k, roughly 21k would be the duty :-#
Totally negates the cost difference.
