Computers are known as automatic data processing machines, and are classifiable under HS Heading 84.71. General import of such computers are not duty free. But a passenger is entitled duty free benefits for computers.
For example, a passenger can bring along with him a desktop/laptop computer (with UPS), a computer scanner and a computer printer without paying any duty. This facility is available under the Passenger (Non-tourist) Baggage (Import) Rules, 2011.
