Can I buy a bike in India while I am travelling here, and take it back to Bangladesh?

If yes, then how much will be the duty charges for a bike? (Price ₹60000-70000)


There's a tax and duty calculator at Customs Duty Free that will give you an estimate of the taxes and duties payable. I've reproduced below the calculation for importing a bicycle valued at 70,000 taka (about INR63,000), no insurance, no shipping.

The total taxes and duties payable on import are approximately 39,000 taka.

You should perform your own calculation based on actual values, and be aware that this site may not be authoritative.
