Customs charges are based on which H code your product comes in. There are many sub divisions for elecrtonic items and the duty varies accordingly. Take time and browse in below website to know more on the calculations.

You can buy literally anything and if the size of parcel is small then you won’t get charged.

They have internet and google to know the price,best way to escape custom is order from gearbest and choose priority line(india line not india ecommerce),it will be shipped through gati and reach you within one week with no custom duty,ordered Xiaomi Yi 4k,SJCAM SJ6,android tv box and many low priced items.

what is the diff between india line and india line ecommerce? Today I ordered an android tv box and selected india line. Hope I get it soon

I ordred MI TV box from aliexpress and the seller sent me the chinese version instead of global version, what shall i do? Aliexpress agreed to refund the total amount if i ship it back to customer, i have paid the customs of rs 1450 for this parcel. It’s useless to me. can any of you tell me what is the best way to return the product to china, is it safe via india post?

Be it India Post or DHL or FEDEX or any logistics, you cannot negotiate the customs fee. This is the fee charged by Indian Customs department which is borne by the logistics company temporarily until they extract the same from the customer. If you reject paying that amount the package won’t be handled to you.

Customs duty vary and depends on what you purchase. Most times, at least with mobile phones, even if you get a great deal and purchase it at a much lower price than MRP the customs duty is charged depending on the valuation they have internally. This is because most people declare a lesser value to escape customs duty so these guys standardise prices for each product for their internal use.

so can these customs charge be estimated before itself?

i too have to buy some things bt afraid of their charges m not doing so.

Very difficult. If you struggle you might find the standard customs duty for each category but the end duty might vary by the valuation they consider for the product.

Go for e-commerce sites such as amazon.com where you prepay customs duty. They never charged me excess of that and most times I end up getting a refund as the actual duty paid by them is lesser. Also, you get to know up front as to what you need to pay.

I don’t know what to do then. But u have to think positive for positive results, have to take our chances as we don’t get such boxes in India.

govt. is not looting you. you are paying the tax fixed by the govt. which is proportionate to each and every on. If any one trying to cheat govt. they should be hanged
