I’m purchasing Bitmain Antminer S9 from the Official online store of Bitmain. According to Bitmain,” you research and prepare in advance for customs’ clearance in your country to avoid delays or unexpected costs.” Furthermore, What is the procedure of importing Bitmain’s Antminer to India
Before starting with the process of mining cryptocurrencies with Antminer ensure that there is surety of selling your Bitcoins and Altcoins. Since Cryptocurrencies are banned in India and there is no other way to trade than selling bitcoins locally or escrow trading.
Importing Antminers in India has been restricted as Bitmain told in a Twitter post “Hi! The Indian Custom authorities have informed us that they will not allow importation of cryptocurrency mining hardware unless they receive a clarification about it from the @dgftindia
So, we are currently not selling miners to India.”
It is not easy for a Cryptocurrency mining hardware manufacturer to distribute their products worldwide. India is not alone there are many regions in the world where Bitcoin mining hardware is controversial. India is still working on regulations regarding cryptocurrencies and has no plans to change their orders.
If you are interested to purchase Antminer you can buy from any e-commerce site supporting that product such as Amazon. The Procedure of importing Antminers directly from Bitmain will be risky and long. Follow DGFT for further reference.
