sir i am anil. i have a query about customs taxation. if i want to import a car from europe i have to pay a tax of about 150%in cbu( complete build unit) route. and the car costs around 1 million more than that. but i saw somewhere that if its ckd route ( complete knocked down unit ) its about 30%. now my question starts . if i buy that car from europe and knock it down like engine, gear box, wheels, seats , and many things which is possible. is it legal to do that to avoid this insane tax which is completely insane . and later assemble over here under local dealer ship.

A. Dear Sir/Mam,
The rate of customs depends on how the car is imported.
You will have to pay the duty as per rates prevailing which highly depends on how the import is made.
You can break down the car but then if that does not cover under the warranty as because you have not taken the car as it is. If you break the car down, you will reassemble the car thyen you shall be yourself liable for all the costs that come in your way. If you are ready to bear all of this and ready to accept all responsibilities in this relation then you may.
