If you like to carry a satellite phone when you travel, don’t even think of bringing it to India without declaring it or you could be arrested and thrown in jail. Even if you do declare it, you should be able to prove ownership and give a good reason for carrying it. You also have to get a license for it from the Department of Telecommunication.  A friend of a friend has been languishing in jail for the last six months just because he likes to carry one with him when he travels to remote areas (he was planning to go trekking in the Himalayas).
