I would like to share the procedure of obtaining Equipment Type Approval (hereafter ETA) from WPC.
If you want to know what is ETA or why it is required read the following posts;
http://www.rcindia.org/radios-and-receivers/important-new-guidelines-by-indian-customs-for-radio-controllers/
http://www.rcindia.org/radios-and-receivers/list-of-all-radios-with-wpc-approval-so-far/
http://www.rcindia.org/rc-outlets-and-resellers/strict-rules-on-parcel-importing-!!!/msg22616/#msg22616

In short, no license is required to use 2.4 GHz to 2.4835 GHz or 5.825 to 5.875 GHz. However, the equipment need to comply to the following
Maximum out power of transmitter : 1 W (30 dBm) in Spread of 10 MHz or higher
Maximum Effective Radiated Power: 4 W (36 dBm)
The above requirement is specified in the below WPC Notification
http://www.wpc.dot.gov.in/Static/Gazette%20(%202.4%20GHz)_Outdoor.doc
http://www.wpc.dot.gov.in/DocFiles/GR-38.doc
So, to prove that the above the Equipment is to be Type Approved by WPC (ETA). Also, after ETA Approval one should obtain a Import license.

As you see, as per the current system the information of the equipments type approved till date is not available to the public.
Also, ETA is to be repeated by everyone Bang Head intend to import since ETA is provided in the name of the company/person applying for.
I will continue with the First step in the next post.

Disclaimer: I have no intention to establish that you should obtain ETA, import license before import or purchase it from LHS etc.

STEP 1
WPC follows online application process (+hard copy after applying) for ETA.
If the item you want to obtain ETA is in the equipment list, you can proceed with the STEP 2, otherwise you have to get the item added in the equipment list of WPC website.
Check in the following link:
http://wpc.dot.gov.in/equipment_show.asp
Equipment category : Transceiver
Equipment Type : EQUIPMENT
and then select the Manufactrure & Model,
If the item is in the list you can skip STEP 1, other wise follow the procedure below to get the item added to this master list;
See the detailed steps in the following link;
http://wpc.dot.gov.in/demopages/equipment_demo.asp
Fill in the RF Equipment Proforma as per the below file & submit to WPC office along with catalogue of the item
http://www.wpc.gov.in/WriteReadData/userfiles/file/RF%20EQUIPMENT%20PROFORMA.xls

Please note that this process may take upto one month. However, in my case no action was taken even after two months and then I filed grievance on http://pgportal.gov.in/Default.aspx
and action was taken by WPC.
Refer the attachments for the actual documents I used to get the FRSKY products added in this list.

Second step is applying for ETA. I will update with the procedure after few weeks since the application is being submitted today.

Thanks a ton Friend. Salute A great gesture and help to many of us.
People who import regularly , may have done the same process, but no one described the  process in detail. There are many threads regarding import of radios and custom help, but have seen, rarely any lhs have come forward with such help.

wait a minute please. Is this all??? don't one need to verify the item individually testing (that the data one filled in the format are true) by some recognized agency? will WPC then issue you NOC to purchase (from abroad) any item from the list?

Last, can an individual will now buy from abroad any item from the above list?

Sorry, sir. I have not properly mentioned that there are three steps involved in the procedure;
I have explained only the first step till now, which is adding the item to the WPC database.

Second step is the actual application for ETA which needs the test reports. This is to be done online (selecting the item added in the first step) with submission of hard copy. If the item is already in the list first step is not required which is already mentioned in my Reply #1

Third step is getting import license using the ETA obtained in the second step.

Dear All,
I made the application on 21/08/2014 for Taranis X9D+X8R Receiver.
I am waiting for some response from them  Bang Head so that I can explain Step 2 correctly.

I was never able to find who really do the job-"the test reports". no where i found info on that, although there are lot of service providers  but simply they are always out of budget for an individual TxRx import.

Btw, perhaps Import Licence "should" not compulsory if Import is strictly for personal use and not for trade. I remember, customs always ask everybody for IC code  whenever someone found stuck Bang Head. (may be my this  assumption wrong)

1. I used the test reports made for FCC approval from the following link. But, Turnigy transmitters are not found in this database.
https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/GenericSearch.cfm

2. As per current system, my understanding is that import license is required for personal use too.  I feel that it does not matter whether it is for personal use or for trade.  Think this way : Firearms are restricted item for import. Am I allowed to import a pistol without a import license for my personal use?
Sorry, I can't say anything how other import it.

See the following WPC Link where you have to apply for ETA approval / import license  etc.
http://wpc.dot.gov.in/Mics/register.asp
User Type : Individual or Company
You can register yourself as an individual or as a Company.

Regarding IEC Code

I have compiled sometime back a list related to products used by us;
http://www.rcindia.org/radios-and-receivers/approval-for-2-4-ghz-radios/msg168318/#msg168318
The list is result of Step 1 of the procedure explained by me above and it does not mean all items in the list are Type Approved.
For example I have submitted application to add FRSKY products and were added by WPC and the list shows the same.
But, my ETA approval for Taranis X9D is still pending.

Only the person/company/wpc knows it.
Please note ETA is not one time approval. ETA is to be repeated whoever wants to import it.
