NEW DELHI: The government has banned duty-free import of
flat screen television by air travelers in a bid to prop up

against the US dollar.
The government, according to a notification, has decided
to "disallow import of flat panel (LCD/LED/Plasma) television
as part of free baggage allowance" with effect from 26
Air travelers currently can bring a flat screen television
for personal use without paying any duty.
