Indian customs authorities can be very strict about the commercial transactions of each shipment. This includes the origin of each transaction, payment for the goods, and the ownership of the goods in-country. For instance, goods are often subject to revaluation at customs. Revaluations of your shipment can have dire consequences for profit margins.
Additionally, various restrictions are placed on IT goods being imported into India. All wireless goods require a Wireless Import Permit (WIP) permit to ensure they meet compliance standards. A Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certificate is then required for all electronic equipment. It is now also compulsory for all listed IT hardware entering India to have a Mandatory Testing and Certification of Telecom Equipment (MTCTE) certification. Most of these permits and certifications have lengthy lead times. However, TecEx either has these or can source them on your behalf.
Despite the prominence of trade, India is considered a high-risk lane. It is, therefore, important to investigate comprehensive liability cover for your goods.
