I am planning to take a digital oscilloscope from USA to India which I brought on ebay for about USD 500. The usual cost of the scope can be couple of 1000 dollars. Can anyone advise what will the implications and complications at Indian customs during entry. This is not an item which individuals usually bring along with, so I don't have any idea.
As per customs rules which I read, for people who are in USA for long term can take tools and equipment's worth INR 75,000 but those are rules and fact is arguing at customs is like banging your head against huge rock. so if anybody has any experience please share. I will be entering at Bangalore.
