Shipping to India also is very expensive, also not all defence products get customs exemption, surely individual or unit level will not. Hell even Navy's Mig 29Ks were not spared by customs.I didn't buy any vest from Oliveplanet, I bought a non-ballistic helmet.
As per the info provided on that page they are selling the vest + 2 x Level-III+ armour plates as a package.
As you said an original Crye JPC 2.0 goes for about 18k.
A single Level-III+ plate from AR500 goes for about 7.5k, so 15k for 2 plates (all prices directly converted from USD retail prices).
That still only adds up to about >35k
Once you add the import duties + profit margin it should be higher, but 55k still seems pretty high. Well, there aren't many sellers doing this in India, so banta hai I guess.
Someone check if GST on ballistic armour is very high or what.
