    Hema, I think the OP actually means 10 sovereigns(10 pavans)... which is equal to 80 gms... :) because each coin will be 8gms or less...

    maybe she meant pouns that is one sovereign in tamil..

    and hema your thought process gave me a heart attack..seriously yaar..

    and srividya, did you not notice before people ask questions related to @#@ though their location is different..I have got so used to it by now..

    Sinsica, if its 10 coins, i am sure you can take it..but i always suggest keeping the bills with you for a smooth sailing.

    Sorry I forgot to update my location. Again sorry it's sovereigns. 10x8 gms of gold. How much tax will I need to pay in INR ? Some say they won't ask anything some say they will ask 30K. Can you help me ?

    I don't think you need to pay for this, if you are travelling for your annual leave. and the number of people accompanying you also matters. but sometimes, you need to pay 220rsx8 = that is around 1600..and a maximum that is possible is 2400..and not 30k.
