Re: LCD/LED from Dubai...

List price is just one factor. Yes, the set may be cheaper in Dubai. Some of the things you must consider besides price:
  • Shipping cost: Such a large item cannot go as your baggage (it is 40" and the laden box weight would be close to 35 kg). The excess baggage cost of $25 per kilo will be horrendous. It must be sent as unaccompanied baggage or cargo. Still it will be quite a bit.
  • Customs duty: The customs people will have their own value of the item. They will check your valuation with their own and consider the higher value. Then they will verify the shipping cost with your challan and add that to the price. They will also add 1% as local handling charges. This will form the base value (A) of the product. Remember that if you have sent the item as cargo, you will not get the Rs. 25,000 benefit. That exemption is for accompanied baggage only. So on the base value they will charge 30% as customs duty (B) on (A). If you bring the goods via MH state (read Mumbai airport), a further 4% octroi will be charged on (A+B) - call this (C). So your total cost is A+B+C.
  • Warranty: International warranty does not work - believe me. So you will have no warranty.
  • Finally, you will have to engage some local transport to bring it home.
  • If you wish for any wall mounting, you will have to pay for that too.
The whole affair is not worth. Even if you save, it may not be much and the hassles are too many.

Re: LCD/LED from Dubai...

If goods are brought in under the "transfer of residence" scheme then duty structure is completely different. But that does not appear to be your case.

Whatever I mentioned above is the official route. You know what the other route(s) mean.

Re: LCD/LED from Dubai...

You can easily get 40" LCD/LED TV from there. One of my friend got Sony Bx400 LCD (which is older and still going for 50K in India) cost him 28K and 3K for customs (other route!!!)
It's standard in Hyderabad airport that LCD 3K, LED 5K till 40", afterwards it is 10K and depends person to person.
Hope it helps.

Re: LCD/LED from Dubai...

46" will be very big to carry as accompanied baggage by air. Also the risk of screen breakage is too high. Better to buy in india for warranty issues also. The dealer will safely deliver the tv to your place with demo.

In my opinion, any TV will be too big to carry as accompanied baggage - unless you are going to Dubai with just a carry-on. The free allowance is just 23 kg.
