    After the union budget 2014, Free baggage allowance for air travelers has been hiked to RS 45,000 from the existing 35,000.
    This means you can shop more on your next international holiday or trip.
    Waiting for some more details to update further.

    Nope. TVs of any sort are still not permitted, so if you bring one in, you'd have to pay a lot of duty on it. (See my earlier thread about ban on LCD TVs in Aug 2013)

    Here's the official note from the Customs department (on the back of declaration form) -

    So according to this document, the free allowance is still 35k, not 45k. Maybe waiting for a change in forms?
