Carrying a satellite phone without permission is strictly prohibited in India.

There is a clear rule in India which bans the use of satellite phones and even if foreigners coming in with valid documents permitting them to carry such phones, the Indian authorities reserve the right to deny them such permissions. When persons with satellite phones land in India, the mandate is that the phone is first seized by the customs. Only after they obtain a licence from the department of telecommunications, can they clan claim their phones back. (source: Rediff)

For permission, contact Department of Telecommunication at Room No. 1204, Sanchar Bhavan, 20, Ashoka Road, New Delhi - 110 001.

If you are traveling to India, you must be aware, before hand, of the items which you must NOT carry with you when you land at any port (Air or Sea) in India. There have been many instances where people who carried these items to India even by mistake got into trouble with Indian authorities. 

The items include:

  • Maps and literature where Indian external boundaries have been shown incorrectly.
  • Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances
  • Good violating any of the legally enforceable intellectual property rights
  • Wild life products
  • Counterfeit Currency notes/coins or fake currency notes
  • Specified Live Birds and Animals.
