Laptop ban

Earlier this month, the Central government issued a notification putting immediate restrictions on imported laptops, tablets, and personal computers. As per the new regulation, any entity or or company seeking to import the above mentioned electronic devices in India, will have to secure a “Valid Licence for Restricted Imports”.

“Import of Laptops, Tablets, All-in-one Personal Computers, and Ultra small form factor Computers and Servers falling under HSN 8741 shall be ‘Restricted’ and their import would be allowed against a valid Licence for Restricted Imports,” the notice issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade read.

Top brands such as HP, Acer, Apple, Asus, Samsung and others faced the brunt of these restrictions due to the demand of their laptops and PCs in India.
