I am an Indian citizen residing in Canada for the last 4 months. If I carry two new handbags to India worth $300 approx, would I be required to pay import duty. I checked the website and it says that you can bring valuables worth Rs.35000 (approx. $600). I just want to make sure that new handbags won't be a problem.

  • Total value. And no other dutiable goods in my opinion. Its just that one of the bags is a designer bag which I nabbed for a really good price. I am just concerned that they might consider the price back in Indian rather than the price I got it for. – TheNoob Apr 9 '15 at 2:36

    Yes. Although I bought these online and you never know with Indian officials. They are not exactly the reasonable type. – TheNoob Apr 9 '15 at 3:27

Is $300 more than $600? I think you just answered your own question there.

    +1, but zeros are a relatively late arrival. So perhaps not. – Gayot Fow Apr 9 '15 at 0:13

    On the other hand, zero as a number was invented in India, so you'd figure Customs there would have heard of it. – jpatokal Apr 9 '15 at 1:39
