3) drilling ,Filing tools , screws , nuts , bolts , screw driver(For Modifying my drum kit)
4) Some metal and wood articles for modifying my drum kit
For personal use, you can import such items that are not on the banned list. As you are intending to import only musical drums, which I am sure are not on the banned list, you can import. Steps to be taken:
Finalize a reliable supplier abroad
Obtain proforma invoice from him clearly giving all the price and the amount to be remitted, currency of the amount and his account and the routing address like SWIFT code of their bank.
Once the proforma invoice is received, you may approach your bank requesting them to send the remittance. You may submit copies of the invoice etc. to the bank. They shall remit the amount.
In case the overseas supplier shall give you credit, you may inform the address of your bank so that the documents shall be sent through the bank.
Sir, the import item shall be governed by the Foreign Trade Policy (FTP- 2015-20) formulated by the Central Govt/DGFT under the FTDR Act. You can import the said item, provided if the import policy is Free and not restricted, exempted., by paying the applicable BCD, if any.
The import of said item if mandates "Actual User condition" and any other conditions, the importer should comply the same.
You can approach the regional DGFT office for further clarification.
Please approach your Bank who shall normally provide all guidance for making a foreign remittance. Or they shall guide you to approach a nearby branch/office that are designated to handle foreign currency transactions.
