I am planning to purchase one Computerised (electronic/digital) racket stringing machine from China for my badminton team members.   It is purely personal use but some times will be used for stringing of rackets of our team.  I need the following information. 

01. Is it necessary to have Import License.

02. What will be the Custom Duty on Racket Stringing Machine.

As some sports items are duty free, I would like to know whether stringing machine is free from duty or not. 

A quick information wil help me a great.
