After immigration, passengers go through the Customs Declaration Counter as the final step before moving towards their boarding gates. Customs usually do no stamping or baggage check; however, in case of suspicion or as part of a random routine check, sometimes your baggage may be examined by customs.
Important points to consider on departure from India:
If you are exporting any high valued items such as jewellery that you would import back into India, consider getting the export certificate from the customs authority, so you are not charged customs duty on these items later when you return.
For export certificates, physical verification of the goods is mandatory.
Indian residents can take Indian currency notes not exceeding the value of INR 25,000 with them.
Carrying currency notes of the following denominations is prohibited in Nepal and Bhutan - INR 500 and INR 2,000. Only INR 100 or smaller denominations are allowed.
Indian residents going abroad can carry foreign exchange, including foreign currency, without limits so long as RBI/authorised foreign exchange dealer has issued the same. Foreign currency notes exceeding USD 5,000 or equivalent, and foreign exchange, including currency exceeding USD 10,000 or equivalent, needs to be declared at Customs Counter.
Tourists/NRIs, while leaving India, are allowed to take with them foreign currency not exceeding an amount brought in by them.
