      Import Duty on Corrective Spectacles - Importing from China into India


      I am in the process of opening a eye hospital in India and have plans to provide free eye sight glasses to poor people (after checking their eye sights). I have inquired the Chinese ready made glasses and that is the most cost effective solution.

      What kind of import duty will the Indian Government have me pay on these specs? Any answer or pointers will be very helpful.

      Thank you!

      Hi Visshukl,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      All imports into India have to be classified into groups and sub-groups in order to levy the customs duty. You can use the Customs Tariff Act 1975 to find the correct classification for spectacles.

      Listed below you will see the correct HS-code to classify corrective or non-corrective spectacles:

      HS-code Item Description
      7015 Import Duty on - Clock or watch glasses and similar glasses, glasses for non-corrective and corrective spectacles, curved, bent, hollowed or the like; not optically worked; hollow glass spheres and their segments, for the manufacture of such glasses

      HS-code Item Description Basic Duty CVD SPL.CVD
      70151010 Ophthalmic rough blanks 10.00% 5% 4%
      70151020 Flint button 10.00% 5% 4%
      70151090 Other 10.00% 5% 4%
      70159010 Clock or watch glasses and similar glasses, curved, bent, hollowed or the like, glass spheres and segments of spheres for the manufacture of such glasses 10.00% 10% 4%
      70159020 Glass for sun glasses 10.00% 10% 4%
      70159090 Other 10.00% 10% 4%

      We also recommend the New Import Duty & VAT Calculation | DutyCalculator to calculate the precise duty for your spectacles imported from China into India.

      We also suggest contacting customs officials to get more information about importing spectacles from China.

      Hope this helps
