Since the passengers have to carry LCD and LED TVs on domestic and international flights, the airline clearly mentions the rules of their carriage.
IndiGo allows a maximum of 2 such TVs to be carried on its flight per passenger and the maximum size of each TV acceptable is 55 inches (139.7cms). More than 2 TVs and TVs of more than 55 inches dimension are not allowed to be carried. Even as it allows 2 TVs of 55 inches dimension each, there are certain conditions attached.
If a person is carrying only 1 LCD/LED TV and if the total weight of the baggage (including that of the TV) is more than the free baggage allowance, then excess weight is chargeable as per given rates above (note that these are different for domestic and international flights, as given in table above). In case the TV is more than 39 inches but less than 55 inches, then there is a levy of additional handling charges of Rs 1200.
In case a person is carrying 2 LCD/LED TVs and if the total weight of the baggage (including that of both TVs) is more than the free baggage allowance then excess weight is chargeable as per given rates (note that these are different for domestic and international flights, as given intable above). There is a general rule that the carriage of 2nd TV will always entail additional handling charges and for this the dimension of the TV would be immaterial. The rates at which the additional charges would be levied are the same as are levied for a TV having more than 39 inches (note that these are different for the domestic and international flights, as given in grid above). This situation can be understood as:
Both TVs not exceeding 39 inches (99.06 cms) dimension: Excess Baggage Weight Charge + handling charge for 1 TV
One TV having more than 39 inches but less than 55 inches, and second TV not exceeding 39 inches: Excess Baggage Weight charge + handling charge for 1 TV
On domestic and international flights of IndiGo, free cabin baggage allowance of 7 kg is allowed for infants. There is no check-in baggage allowance for infants.
