    My old post was deleted. So I'm posting a copy of that for the new users. Cheers..

    I've done quite a lot of permutation and combinations to get the OnePlus One in India and found PPOBox to be the cheapest and safest way.(Considered many parcel forwarding services like Aramex shop n ship, myus, borderlinx, hopshopgo,shipito, bongous,myaddressusa, shoppingusa,etc )

    The weight will be around 600 grams and dimensions are 30cm*20cm*5.5cm
    Buy your 1+1 phone from the Official OnePlus Webstore.
    Make sure to set your Billing Address to your home address (India) and your Shipping Address to your PPOBox address of New York OR New Jersey.

    And one more thing. There will be no more sales tax etc for sending it to PPOBox NY Address.

    Its better not to buy from websites like alibaba, etc who are selling around USD 500. Even if you huge amount you will never know its real or not before you receive it. P.S.- They do not offer return services.

    Coming to the point, PPOBox has no registration fee & very less shipping fee as compared to other services.
    US to India shipping will be done either bu ICCWORLD(Bombay Courier) or DHL and Local. Customs will be cleared by them. After receiving the parcel in their Mumbai Ware house, you will hev to clear the customs due online through thier website, and next day they will forward the parcel to you via BLUEDART. So, its real fast. They take around 4-5 days to get it delivered to your home address including customs.

    Here is the breakup.
    OnePlus One 64gb USD 349
    Shipping(Oneplus) USD 16
    Shipping(PPOBo) USD 16
    Insurance (2%) USD 7
    TOTAL(Excluding Customs) USD 388

    TOTAL INR 22890.00
    Forex (4%) INR 915.00
    Customs (USD24.43)(+12.36%) INR 1620.00
    TOTAL (Including all) INR 25425.00

    Chekout the detail of PPO Box


    For, warranty services, you've to return the OnePlus on your expense to OnePlus' Service center, and you have to get it back also on your own expense. (Remember, Customs will only be applicable on the amount in bill for repair)

    If anybody has any better way of shipping it to India, Please Share.
    And Hope this helps.

    good calculation, but can we trust PPOBox, i mean they will open and test our package items, as mentioned on their site.

    I know its mentioned in their website. While importing my bro's nexus5, they didn't open the package. Some of my friends also ordered after via PPOBox, and their box was also not opened.

    @Sushsich . Man a small request. If you can, can you please keep a note of the procedure. In case I get lucky, i could use some pointers in placing the Invite.

    Especially regarding to forwarding service [how to register etc, and what addresses to fill then in OPO site]. And also abouyt paypal [havent used the service, so what kind of cards for Indians are applicable, and account creation]

    Would really appreciate your inputs. Thanks in advance.
