          Re: Import Laws

          from what i hear the customs here is clean in Kochi. I mean the only reason i think the package was detained in the 1st place was they felt that the package was grossly undervalued by Fasttech @ 10 usd declared which made them suspicious. But 1 thing i learnt from this is the duty will be applied to the whole package and not only for the electronic items in the package. It will be levied on the receipt value. in my case 30% of USD 36. So its fine i guess at the end of the day. I still have not received the package yet tho. hope it reaches tomorrow :-\

          On a sidenote i just received my Sony VTC5s x2 18650 and 2x18350 ultrafires which i had completely forgotten bout yesterday after like 3 months in shipment

            Oh, great. You had also ordered some from Yaeliq, isnt it?
            Yes, this is usually just a notice to charge customs. Maybe its good to place multiple orders, but small ones, not too many items at one go.

              Keep your orders below $35 and you won't have any issues with customs bro.

                    Re: Import Laws

                    I got a notice today from assistant drug controller. My vcv order is stuck with them. I send them the invoice etc to the email mentioned in the notice but they are making me run in circles. They gave me another number to contact and when I contacted that number they are saying I have to sort it out with the drug control office

                      Re: Import Laws

                      Hmm that sucks! Don't know what's going on with customs. It's not like you were trying to import gallons, it's such a small quantity stuff and even then they're going all butthurt.

                      Should check with Abre what he did and if he got his stuff. I'll send Abre an email and request him to reply on this thread.

                        Ah, typical Indian system
                        Anyway, do keep us updated Anand - hope things get sorted out quickly.

                          Oops, didn't read above, Abre did mention that he got his stuff. So nothing to worry Anand bhai, I'm sure you will get it but will have to pay some customs fee.

                          With that said, I guess VCV doesn't mention the price of the merchandise anywhere on or inside the package. That's why customs may have stopped it. Can't think of any other reasons.

                            Re: Import Laws

                            My only thought in the matter is what are the laws in Mumbai?
                            I believe i had read somewhere that ecig or eliquid is banned in Mumbai - not sure what that exactly implies.
                            And drug control is not customs, i think.
