This question already has an answer here:
While traveling on business to Australia from India, I carried my personal HP laptop (4 years old). Unfortunately, my laptop overheated and I had to buy a new Macbook Pro from Australia. I have the receipt indicating the same.
Later, I traveled to China from Australia; carrying 2 laptops in hand luggage. I got my old laptop repaired and it works like a charm. Now, I want to buy another laptop as a gift for my friend. Can I carry 3 laptops in hand luggage to India?
I've not declared anything on the customs declaration form as the items were not new when I was leaving the country and they are all personal items.
My flight details are - Qingdao
