I have ordered a laptop from Singapore which costs $332 , currently this item in customs should i need to pay any custom tax for this?
I read something like below
As per a recent notification dated 12th August, 2016, (issued by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry) there will be no customs duty on the import of electronic gadgets with c.i . f. value upto ₹50000. So laptops, TVs, cellphones such as Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, can be imported into India, without paying any customs duty provided, their cif value is below ₹ 50000.
and how long will it take to clear the customs in chennai ?, my parcel is there for more than 5 days.
