This question already has an answer here:
I am travelling to Australia on SC 400 Visa and have will have a short stay of 40 days or below.
I have to carry an office laptop with me. I also have a personal laptop. I am planning to buy a Macbook from Australia before returning.
Will duty be aplicable in India on return since I would be having 3 laptops with me when I come back!!
As per customs "One laptop computer (notebook computer) over and above the said free allowances mentioned above is also allowed duty free if imported by any passenger of the age of 18 years and above.". Since I will be taking the initial 2 laptops from India I will make sure I take an export certificate. So does this mean the macbook I buy from there will be duty free (since the other two would be in the export list) regardless off the cost of the mac.
Is my understanding correct?
