    Default Customs Import Duty in Airport for LED TV


    Dear Sir,
    I'm an Indian Citizen working in Singapore for 4 months assignment.
    I bought a 42" LG Smart LED TV with 3D in Singapore. I plan to take it to India(Bangalore Airport) by next week.
    One of my colleagues who bought a similar TV took it to Bangalore and during Customs Clearance the officials calculated and told him that the amount legitimately to be paid is 14000 INR; they asked for a bribe of 6000 INR, and he had to pay it.

    To avoid bribing when I take the TV home next week, kindly help me in knowing the information as to how much is the legitimate amount that I should pay for this. If they ask for more with receipt, what can I do in view of the rule/regulation?
    I found in CBEC website and also from Union Budget the following:
    Sec 85.6 Full exemption from Basic Customs Duty is being extended to LCD and LED TV
    panels for 20 inches and above. [S. No 432 of notification No. 12/2012-Customs dated
    17.03.2012 refers]
    Does it mean that I do not have to pay for this? Please help.

    Many thanks in advance. - Satyameva Jayate

    File an RTI application to the CPIO of CBEC giving a description of your item and ask for the certified copies of rules regarding

    a) The excise duty payable for your item.
    b) if no excise duty is payable, then the copy of the notification regarding the same and the date from which such notification comes into force.

    Waitl till you get the requisite information for your rti application and then you can bring the item. At the airport, if the officials demand any thing, then you can show the information so obtained via RTI.

    The application fee is Rs.10/- by Indian postal order in favour of the accounts officer of CBEC.

    vsprajan,

    The poster says he is coming to India "next week".

    There is no chance he will get a RTI reply before that.

    When you land in India, do not pay bribe.
    When Customs officer asks you for duty, ask him the method of calculation as well as the copy of the rules and regulations as per which he has calculated the duty amount. All customs offices located at airports are supposed to have those rules.
    If he refuses to listen, ask him to call the senior most Customs officer on duty at that time.

    All this is possible, if you refuse to pay the bribe.

    AS you land in India , keep ready an RTI Appl proforma [ suitable to your subject - pre-empting problem with customs ] with Rs.10 IPO . If you face problem at clearance , immediately submit the RTI Appl seeking information on queries related to harassment and as suggested above in post 2 and 3 .

    Dear All,

    Thank you for the valuable information. Where do I submit the RTI form in case of trouble? Where can I get it downloaded? Usually how long will it take for the authorities to respond in case if request for info is filed with CPIO?

    Thank you.

    Your post has been merged with another thread on the same topic/subject.

    Read the full thread above.

    This is only a discussion portal. No one can inform you about customs duties. Refer to the Customs website.
