Send them a written clarification that you intended to import the drone for personal use and not to be flown in areas here prohibited. Try and clarify that it was supposed to be used for entertainment purpose and nothing else. Try to be very polite in the letter and make sure you make them understand it's just a simple toy and can't carry any kind of load other than the drone itself. It's better if you appear in front of them and explain instead of a letter.

It happened to me and I faced the customs officer, I even argued with him that drones were sold openly in the market so why am I being questioned. On which he said, I know they are being sold in the market, but they are not allowed to be ordered and imported. Though just a few days ago I received another drone which I ordered online. But that's just luck. This was not in India though.

Best of Luck.

Hi Friends,
I ordered a nano drone (no camera, toy drone) on Jan 2019 from aliexpress.
Now currently this package got stuck in customs.

Can anyone help me to clear customs.
As per my knowledge from 1st December 2018, We can import nano drone without DGCA approval and DGFT license.

I ordered this for my child, but while ordering I was not aware about this import issue. But later I checked internet that toy (nano) drones are allowed to be imported.

DCGA has permitted to fly after getting UIN but not permitted import.
All RC toys/drone/Lipo/walkie Talkie like items are banned in India.
If custom officer is a good person them he will charge less penalty and give you option to RTO .

Return to Origin . This will help you to get the refund.
The order will be shipped back to seller on same tracking number.
Contact customs dept on phone and ask why your parcel is stopped and provide details they want.
