Two corrections are needed: 1. You need a gerund: as subject: "Not taking off your shoes is …" 2. You need a verb: "your shoes is tantamount to …"

Not to take off your shoes when you enter a house in India in tantamount to insulting the host. > Not taking off your shoes BEFORE entering a house in India s tantamount to an insult to the host/to insulting the host. Always " tantamount to ......." When > at the time "Before" is more precise.
