Can gold jewelry be taken on the transfer of residence

Question: Can gold jewelry be taken on the transfer of residence?


Raju Kanumuri: No, gold jewelry cannot be taken under transfer of residency, transfer of residence allows duty-free import of used household goods.
The only duty-free allowance that can be availed when it comes to gold jewellery, 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
