Arrived early to airport. Was dropped at airport by family.
Checked the flight flight details, Waited outside for sometime as I was early. check-in counter had opened. I had printed the ticket before coming to airport as entry is allowed only to passengers with valid ticket. Passport was checked by security.
Check-in queue was short as I was early. Check-in bag was underweight, I got boarding pass for both flight and bag would be received in Sydney.
After completing check-in, proceeded to security check. which was completed in few minutes.
Immigration queue was long. Took about 30 mins to clear immigration. I was asked where I live and what i do by immigration officer. He stamped passport and was allowed in the departure area.
I decided to have food before boarding. India had introduced GST in July 2017. Bill below paying GST for 1st time. CGST - Central GST, SGST - State GST.
