Q639.    Taking gold jewelery to India on transfer of residence . . .

Question:  I am a NRI residing in Dubai for 17 years. Please advise how can I bring my wife's and personal gold jewellery which we have made here in this time. Do we have to pay duty for our personal use items jewellery. Regards Sumit Sent from my iPhone Answer:  I can well understand the significance of your question, anyone having lived in Dubai for that many years would have similar question if they were returning to India. While transfer of residence gives a certain amount of relief to those who return to India for settlement, on used household goods etc. Unfortunately, jewelery is not on the list of items where transfer of residency allows duty free import of used household articles. The only duty free allowance that can be availed when it comes to gold jewelery, I believe is the amount available to NRIs returning to India after a one year, which currently is: Jewelery up to an aggregate value of 50,000 for male passengers Up to an aggregate value of 1,00,000 for a lady passenger (Government of India, Ministry of Finance Notification No. 25/2013-Customs) Any gold jewelery over the above limits will attract customs duty in India. In case you also have jewelery on your return that was taken out of India originally, then you may be able to get an exemption from paying duty for the jewelery taken out of India.
