Octroi @ Mumbai, Maharashtra.


Friends,

Any Mumbaite here, who ordered anything from abroad via BHPhotovideo or borderlinx or Shopyourworld.

I want to know if you paid, what was given fiixed/approx. landprice in Mumbai / Maharashtra? or had to pay 5% more after paying customs.

Would it make any sense if I get the delivery in some other city where there is no octroi for eg. Delhi.

Thanks for your time.

regards,
K

Likely Not A Good Way To Save Octri

I think it is not wise to get delivery in another city to just save octri, to get the item back here will involve courier charges and the risk of lost, damaged, etc.

However i think if address is given of new mumbai, there could be scope of no octri. Hemant, can comment on this as he stays in new mumbai.

Re: Octroi @ Mumbai, Maharashtra.

Customs duty is charged on the sum of actual invoiced price, plus cost of insurance and freight.

Octroi is charged at 5.5% in Mumbai on sum of invoiced price, plus cost of insurance and freight, plus Customs duty.

AFAIK, Navi Mumbai and Thane have no octroi. This is the reason why so many companies including Mumbai-based car dealers have warehouses in Bhiwandi or Panvel belt.

Re: Octroi @ Mumbai, Maharashtra.

Thanks guys.

I called Shopyourworld and asked, for their delivery in Mumbai, if there is any octroi to be paid apart from what they list, their answer is no. How come they manage to do away with it, or they charge extra on the product to begin with cos the customs they charge is 28% only.

I called UPS today and clarified if there is octroi outside Mumbai to which they replied that there is no octroi beyond Mulund naka or dahisar naka.

On my curiosity if I myself pick the delivery from airport which is consigned for navimumbai, the octroi 5.5% will be charged.

Although 5.5% doesn't appear to be a lot but on the whole the amount is going steep.

I have asked SYW to match the quotation I have from BHP lets see if they can do it. Or else I will have to find an address to deliver in Navi Mumbai or Thane.

Thanks for your inputs and time.
Cheers!

Re: Octroi @ Mumbai, Maharashtra.

You have made a very interesting question. Though I am not sure if I have the answer..

Only yesterday I have received my LG blu-ray player BD530 in Mumbai, directly from Amazon USA:
I had paid Amazon as the following breakup:
Item(s) Subtotal: $69.99
Shipping & Handling: $27.93
-----
Total Before Tax: $97.92
Sales Tax: $0.00
Import Fees Deposit $30.43
-----
Total for This Shipment: $128.35

So I did not have to pay any money on delivery. And the only payment copy I have received is of Brihanmumbai Mahanagar Palika signed by the Octroi Inspector (NIPT/SAHAR). The octroi ws charged at 5.5% on Rs. 23148.00. .i.e. Rs. 1273.00

Hope this provides at least some insight..

Hi,

I am a thanaikar, and live in the "Octroi Zone". in no case have I had an octroi reciept submitted to me.

Amazon- only cd/BDs/books
Amazon standard--I have ordered directly from amazon normal shipping (which comes via post office) - in some cases paid duty against a custom slip (no hard and fast rule- paid duty on lower value consignments and not paid on higher value consignment)

Amazon priority (comes by courier) - paid duty in every case - but no reciept given (octroi may have been added)

vpost (amazon shipment) - duty paid at chennai - no octroi paid

borderlinx- (electronics) - seems to add octroi to the duty calculation coz it;s higher than santhol2 paid for the same shipment (umc-1) - again - recieved door delviery without the need to make an extra payment.

I guess that with borderlinx, it may make sense to redirect to a non octroi location if - the value of shipment is high and it's not heavy and you can wait the few extra days that would be required for someone to bring it to mumbai.

I for example could never imagine shipping my UPA power amp to any place other than home coz it weighs so much.

Hi Reju,

As far as I gather from your post is that you got the receipt of Rs. 1273/- along with your shipment but you didn't pay anything that you had already paid for i.e. USD 128.35. Wonder if 128.35 which is shipping fees had in the cost included customs - 28% + octroi - 5.5%.

Thanks.
