Indian Baggage Rules

Indian Baggage RulesThe baggage rules in India are almost the same as they are in the rest of the world with just a few exceptions. The Indian baggage rules are quite stringent and are implemented with a firm hand. So when you visit India, make sure you are acquainted with Indian luggage rules to avoid any confusion. Mostly, passengers get a duty free allowance, which enables them to bring their baggage without paying any duty. Personal and household items are treated as baggage only and can be brought along without any restrictions. There are some specific items on which one will have to pay duty. There are also certain restricted goods that cannot be brought. Read on further about those restricted items.
