@varkey Thank you. :) This will probably be a noob question, but is there any site or anything which shows the HSN code for every product and the duty applicable to them?

@agsbond I don't know if there's a better one out there but I use this. You can search either via product or HSN code. It lists all products that match the string so you might have to scroll down (or ctrl+f) a bit to find the correct one.

I don't think we care about the world's opinion or trade anymore. If we can rank 142/180 in press freedom, 168/180 in the environmental index and 94/107 in the hunger index and get hundreds of people jobless by banning Tiktok/Shein etc, then we can definitely do better by raising the customs duty even further. Don't stop at 100%. Get it to 250% or something.

@varkey Now, ECCS is showing this:

Assessable Value716.94 (INR)
Total Custom Duty268.63 (INR)

So, the amount I should pay is the sum of these 2 values, or just the total custom duty?

@agsbond looks like the seller declared a lower value on the invoice 😅 You'd have to pay the total customs duty however that's the value as filed, if customs officers during the process changes the assessable value or the category this would vary. You'll need to wait till status says Exit Scanned to know the final value.

There will be another 300+tax as Aramex's handling charge as well.

@varkey Well, its just a phone case. Nobody will think twice about the value, I guess :p Good seller. I never asked him to declare it as low value or anything. :D
