Guess what you can do? Sit and listen Tan Ki Baat.
the fact that aliexpress is banned, means its super difficult to get high quality parts. Now you get to buy from resellers here, who will add their own tariffs and your selection will always be limited.Again why, the new rules seem to be a step in the right direction? Seems like it should be easier now
I can't even find replacement earpads for headphones anywhere. Aliexpress had a lot of options to choose from.the fact that aliexpress is banned, means its super difficult to get high quality parts.
Actually true a lot of photography stuff, like adapters and covers are almost 5-6 times the price on Amazon vs Aliexpress. Somehow can't seem to select even singapore based sellers on Ali express (i thought the iasue is only china) and others like DHgate and all have a very small selection.I required a optical to 5.1channel analog seperator for a diy home theatre, it is available for 6999 on Amazon India , and guess what? The same thing is available on aliexpress for 1500. They are literally looting and not allowing imports. Similarly there are many components especially in electronics which are overpriced in india. Some MOSFETs which are not available in india, are available there for real cheap. There is no availability of smd components in india so they need to be imported, and now nothing can be done, except to buy them in bulk from digi-key( some 1000 is minimum oq) which is not at all efficient as not all people are manufacturers, diyers require them in small quantities.
