 Thumb Up  
 Why  would  there  be  problems  with  customs?  Andaman  is  a  part  of  India,  not  a  foreign  country.

 I  don't  think  they  will  even  let  you  take  a  shell  from  the  beach.  Check  with  the  local  authorities  to  make  sure  you  are  not  breaching  any  law.

 Beta  is  right.  You  are  banned  from  collecting  anything  in  Andamans.  So  be  careful  before  you  get  in  to  trouble.  Better  ask  when  you  get  off  at  the  airport.

 I  used  to  travel  frequently  to  Andaman  over  the  past  two  years.  There  are  a  couple  of  forest  department  officers  posted  in  the  airport.  I  happened  to  know  one  of  them  personally.  Taking  out  corals  and  forest  products  are  not  permissible  is  what  he  told  me.

 Yes,they  do  not  even  allow  us  to  check-in  with  collected  stray  coral  fragments  that  are  abundantly  found  lying  on  all  the  beaches  (especially  Radhanagar  and  Elephant  islands).
 It  was  my  good  fortune  that  scanning  of  my  luggage  was  carried  out  with  unusual  laxity  otherwise  they  would  have  recovered  enough  dead  corals  to  fill  up  a  20  gallon  saltwater  tank.Maybe  the  innumerable  cups  of  tea  we  shared  with  their  senior  officials  in  our  office  helped  but  I  would  not  bet  on  it  the  next  time  I  visit  Port  Blair.

 i  beg  your  pardon,  but  you  just  set  a  terrible  example.  anyone  who  follows  you  is  will  be  as  equally  guilty  as  you.  i  do  not  want  to  sound  like  an  armchair  conservationist  but  you  are  talking  about  breaking  the  law  here.  
 
 request  mods  to  lock  this  now  before  it  gets  out  of  hand.
