India Implements Authorization Requirement for Imported Laptops, Tablets, and Servers to Boost Domestic Manufacturing

In a bid to promote domestic manufacturing and reduce reliance on foreign imports, India has announced a revision to its import regulations, affecting laptops, tablets, all-in-one personal computers, ultra-small form factor computers, and servers. As per the recent amendment to the Foreign Trade (Development & Regulation) Act of 1992, these devices will now require a valid License for Restricted Import for entry into the country.
