Tension mat le bas Use item ko Gift pack karwa le us seller se aur usko bol dena i don’t want to pay any custom charges.
Mera ek magazine ka subscription h US se, mujhe kabhi bhi custom charges nahi laga.

I have read that AliExpress doesn’t give protection on items marked as Gift. Not sure if it’s true.

Tell him to gift pack with gift wrapper and gift you on your wedding.

Arrey tell him to mark it as gift which will not mention price on package, that’s it.

1) There is high probability of the package been not delivered to you (credit: Indian customs and India post)
2) Just in case you get the parcel, expect a custom charge of 8-10k basis the new policies (the custom charges could exceed the MRP of the product)

Gift marked packages aren’t protected. I’m not 100% confident but @getready seems to be.

It depends on your luck maximum is 20% of product price,if they suspect you intentionally did this expect a penalty also,better dont mark it a gift and use register air parcel,chances of getting it cleared without paying anything is higher in it,In expedited shipping and EMS you will have to pay customs always if product price is more than 10k or if they think product is costly then 10k.

it is based on luck , sometimes they check the items . Dont gift pack it , just declare anyhow that price is low . So in that case no custom charges .

friend buying well known phone brands from aliexpress and quoting for low value is risky. like
mi phones or iphone rates are well known to everyone. if you intentionally quote it as low value. there are more chances to price higher value. they will declare the value as per their mind and you will get customs depend on it. if it is china post then there are more chances. i heard that singapore post is better for shipping to southern part of india. my personnel suggestion is to quote a around 60 to 90$ so as you can skip with a minimum possible custom.

the seller declared the parcel a mp5 player of 20$ value and he did this to many people,many got saved by customs and only few paid nominal charges like 241 rs or 500rs.Thanks everyone for helping and there was only two methods of shipping,1.alixpress standard shipping(1st) and other was 2.DHL (which will cost 29$ more).
So obviously i chose free method.
Will update when i will get the phone.people i india got it in 15 to 20 days,lets see.

It all depends on luck,its not in your hands.

If you are lucky,you might not pay anything at all, if you are unlucky you can pay a lot 2-3 thousand…

There is NO maximum as such. The import duty you see online is for importers ONLY. The ‘aam aadmi’ gets charged more than that. For a headphone imported last month Delhiites paid Rs.2500 those in Bangalore paid Rs.7000 and I was charged Rs.5000(approx) for the very same item bought from the very same source and shipped by the very same courier and delivered by the courier in the very same lot. Go figure. Not to forget that since I don’t carry an importer’s licence I don’t get to challenge the duty charged.
