    This notification pertains to permissibility of import. Duty exemption is not covered here.

    How long has it been since it was shipped? It may take up to a week for the tracking information to be updated sometimes.

    Update: Ordered a kit worth $82 from Aliexpress. Called the post office today and I have to pay around 1690 as duty i.e. approx $25.That's freaking crazy. Almost 30% duty is ridiculous. Positive side is that it's still cheaper than what I would have got in the Indian Market.

    Still rules on customs are not clear and not mentioned anywhere clearly... doing under invoice is also a good option condition the website should agree.

    Damn... I just happened to check that the assesed value is 4000 rupees and they charged 1690 rupees on that. This is unacceptable. 42.25% duty. Insane...

    You should order smaller pack at a time dont order products more than 30$ and if the invoice says 20$ and the package is huge in weight and size customs will open the package check each products price on google and then slap a duty max 50%

    I only ordered one kit bro. There was no declared value on the package only assessed value. The package was not opened though.
