IT also decided to withdraw the exemption on social welfare surcharge which was earlier available on the basic custom duty on mobile phones. According to ET, the surcharge is calculated at 10 percent of the basic custom duty. Also Read - Xiaomi, Poco and Oppo phones get a price hike in India: Here's why
