Hi,

Sorry if this is a repeated question, BUT

I want to know if I can carry a bottle each of rum and vodka (750ml each bottle) from Bangalore to Chennai by train (Just carrying sealed bottles without consumption).

Will I run into any problems at all?

Thanks!

There is no definite yes or no. If the baggage is checked and they find the bottles it can be confiscated. If the baggage is not checked then there is no problem.

I am not sure of the legal angle but I haven't seen anyone checking. I have brought for my personal consumption many times. Never had issues. So its your call

Isn't it mentioned in every compartment that carrying inflammable material is illegal?

Oh yes! Sorry, I missed the safety angle. Then its definitely illegal. I was looking it only from the duty/tax side. Thanks for correcting.
