Delivery To India Customs And Taxes

Whenever I order from UK, like Cult Pens, I have to pay a ton of duties, around 40-60% in fact on my recent order I paid more than 50% taxes ? [both on DHL courier and normal post, so its not a local post corruption issue]. But when I order from the US [FedEx courier], or other parts of Asian continents like Japan, Singapore I hardly have to pay customs even for an Expensive item ?

 

Can anyone please explain what is going on here ? I was not able to find any clue online ?

 

Thanks and Regards,

GS Gill

I don't know the specifics, but I'd assume there are different business treaties with different countries. And the government is kinda trying to promote stuff made in India, so it makes sense that they would make the custom duties ridiculously high to discourage import of goods.

Thanks for reply Rudra . . .

 

Apparently, Indian Govt charged me about 1.7K for Duties but 7K for GST and Taxes. ??? on an order of about 16K ???
