Make in India: Curbs on computer imports
SummaryImporters will need permits to bring in laptops, tablets, servers
India imposed import restrictions on laptops, tablets, and servers to establish the country as a hub for electronics manufacturing amid surging imports. Effective immediately, importers will need permits to bring in laptops, tablets, all-in-one personal computers, ultra-small computers, and servers, a notification by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said. Personal computers (PCs) designated “capital goods" may be exempt, the agency added.
