[Reply your reason of why and how as shown below]
The Obscene good having [consignment details] value Rs [Value of product] Import by [Your Name] should not be confiscated under Section 111(d) of the Customs Act, 1962, Because I was not aware about the law of Custom Act, 1962.

[write what is written in the letter as an apology]
Please forgive me. This is my first time, and now I fully understand the law and I will not break the law again. [write something similar to this – don’t copy paste]
This will not happen again. I had placed orders before from International websites (orders like clothes) but I was not aware about regarding importing of obscene item[Your item description] is not allowed.
Please sir consider my first and last mistake. I am really sorry.
[Explain more to lengthen the letter]
Penalty should not be imposed upon the importer under Section 112(a) [Check your section in your letter] of the Customs Act, 1962.
I bought the goods for personal use and not for the purposes of trade.
I was not aware about this item not allowed in India. Please sir/mam consider my request not to impose penalty. I am promising you as you won’t find this in future from my end.
Kindly accept my apology. I will be careful in the near future
