    It differs...but slightly...$2-5....PPOBox clears the Customs for you...you've to pay the customs to PPOBox's India partner website, iccworld.com, after that they will send it to you by BlueDart.

    Ok..
    I think the custom duty is approx 17% on bill amount ...telling from personal experience..
    You said ...Customs (USD24.43)(+12.36%) INR 1620.00
    I guess duty is approx ( if bill amount is $350 * 60 ) --> Rs. 3570/- total

    Please re verify with the link --- http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/

    Thanks

    It's 7% and I'm sure about that.. Your parcel must have been marked as "Electronics" that's why 17% was charged. It's 7% for "Mobiles". I've searched about it in the internet hours before getting my Nexus5.

    It is marked as CellPhone ..I have bill ... and also customs bill...with details breakup.
    That is same as http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/
    For Item marked as Mobile Phone...
    I am sure also.... since I got details in my hand in recent time.

    But customs may vary... wish your calculation to be right ... that will help others.
    But I have strong doubt ...

    I registered with PPOBox and I got a call from Aakash for verification and guess what !?!?

    PPOBox is also promoting 1+ One and they said they would deliver it within 5-7 days promptly and total cost would be around 3 - 3.4K INR all inclusive, and they are even aware of the INVITE system ;)

    I wanted the package not to be opened even for inspection as it is going to be a gift, they said they will not open but the customs might open for inspection. Also he suggested to opt for insurance as it only costs 2%:)

    Hoping their service would be good, I told them if they deliver my product promptly I might promote their services to other 1+ Indian members in this forum.... ;)
