Yup things are alright back here in the old country ;)

You definitely do not need to cart your favourite kit all the way back. Chances are you will be able to get all you need delivered to your doorstep. Most of the dealers here do speaker setups as well. Dealer support here completely rocks anything you may have over there.

Hi,

Warm welcome to the forum and to the country !! have a pleasant stay here !!

Please do share with us the set-up you had in Canada and the proposed set-up here !!

India has moved quite a bit interms of technology so we no longer are a backward country ( though the implementation of these is a different story and out of the context here)

As others have said please read the already existing thread of the similar topics and then post your query ! this will not only help you to gather some information but also may give a ready reckoner to your problems !

Regards.

You don't need to but projectors cost a little more here right now. Get what you want in but you may have to cough up some change at customs.

Saw a review for a Viewsonic Home Theater projector in this months 'Digit' magazine, with a MRP of Rs.36000. Review comments indicate it is good value for money.

im an indian living overseas and was also surprised to see all the brands available in india when i joined this forum, though expensive due to customs, low turnover etc etc. if you come on transfer of residence you are allowed one music system / ht free of customs duties

i wish it was true all i could find was that if someone comes home after stay of over 5 yrs the family is allowed max. tax free stuff worth 75k indian rupees and even for that i am a little weary of customs ..how they are going to process me at the airport if they tax me at my invoices then it is fine if they go by the msrp then i will be in for a shocker....so the plan was to get one oppo 983 ,one projector and maybe one avr across but if it is just slightly expensive or as you put it a proj for 36 k i might as well just travel light.... thanks.

check again, because if you come on transfer of residence you are allowed to bring one of each item (fridge, tv, music system etc etc.) my cousin had moved back 2 years ago and there was no problems

Afj,

Any idea how your cousin managed the customs clearing process - through a clearing agent? Am assuming the stuff came separately via freight.

A friend has moved back and is in a similar situation.

Thanks

he brought in a container. applied for t/r - transfer of residence. they stamp it in your passport etc. did it through a clearing agent. most clearing agents should be able to assist
