I find each international shopping site quoting different amounts as "Import Duty" for computer hardware (like processor, RAM and graphics card).

Amazon's global store calculates it at 40 to 43% of the product price. NewEgg's global store was calculating at 21% up until and a few weeks ago but have changed it to 45% now.

The customs tariff page on the government website doesn't mention anything about computer hardware.

So what is the current import duty on computer hardware?


The import duty on most electronic components is zero. However these items still require to pay iGST of 18%.

  • Thanks for the answer. Do you have a source for this? I'd like to know what type of electronics attract an import duty and which are all exempted. – theimporter Oct 29 '17 at 11:16
