Tracking shows the following after reaching India :-

1/23/2013 9:40:00 AM INDIA KOLKATA FOREIGN LCAO Receive item at office of exchange (Inb)
1/23/2013 10:48:00 AM INDIA KOLKATA FOREIGN LCAO Send item to customs (Inb)

Does anyone have idea how long it will take for the item (Android Mini-PC MK808) to return from Kolkata customs. I am from Bhubaneswar. I rang Kolkata PO and asked them about the usual timeframe and they said they can’t say anything. It depends on the customs dept. how long will they take for clearance.

Any info in this regard is appreciated. I found few complaints about Kolkata customs on the web. Some of the parcels took 2-3 months for clearance sad evil

Call Indian post toll free number 1800-11-2011. They will tell you the real status of your parcel. If it is stuck with any post-office or custom, they will tell your their contact number and you can check with them why it is stuck.

by default china based sellers sends item as gift or under valued. you have to understand load custom department has, dealing tonnes kilo of items and checking value, making records and sending them to post office after clearance. on the other hand dhl or aramex or fedex has own custom agents and they declare value and put clear invoice and bills to make things easy and fast. they are clear and open in items being cleared unlike China or Hong Kong imports. thus you get item late. either save money by fraudulent manner of avoiding tax or pay tax and get item quickly. choice is yours. https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif

Hello dear friends, I have purchase 2-3 items form aliexpress and my experience is as :
1. the status of tracking no. RC……CN =INDIA, KOLKATA FOREIGN LCAO, Send item to customs (Inb), means Items has been received at Foreign Post Office the branch of General Post Office,(in my case Items received at foreign post office Jaipur) and there are Deputy Commissioner of customs and custom staff also working with postal staff, customs inspector scrutinize the each and every parcel for custom duty if they found items are applicable for custom duty, Item not sent to customer and sent a letter to addressee to produce Invoice/Bill IC card for custom duty purpose, in my case Item cost was $16.23 and I follows govt procedure first produce Invoice/order copy and IC card after that file open by clerk then custom inspector assessing the value of Items in file and after that Dy.Commissioner calculate the custom duty (35% plus 2% and other)after that I pay Rs 440/-(custom duty) +30/-(Postal charge) and received my parcel from postal staff.
2.tracking no.RC……CN not mentioned by customs dept. as postal dept. entered a new local number on parcel hence no tracking after received in foreign post office. you should go at your city GPO foreign post office and search your parcel if it undelivered due to customs duy, as per Dy.commissioner of customs they told verbally that below Rs.100/- is exempt from customs duty.
3. I waste 2 days for this exercise. some other 3-4 days.

don’t contact customs. that should be last thing one should do. always wait. its just 20 days and you are feeling insecure? people get parcels in 6-7 months even.

your item will be released whenever it is valued accordingly. they might have sent you a postal notice asking for documents like bill and id proof which if had happened should come by 3rd week of retention. if not just relax. don’t panic and give yourself some meditation time.

if you call them chances of getting item 2-3 days or utmost a week earlier will increase but add to it sure custom duty to be payable. if you don’t call them and leave item like that it won’t get missed, ideally 99.9% items doesn’t get missed or lost in transit as claimed by sg post (check its faq section) so have faith on postal department.

It is not stuck. Return item from customs means it has cleared custom and has been returned back to the post office for further delivery.

Next status can be/should have been “Send item to Domestic Location” but sometimes they do not update and write every message.

It is possible that this has already arrived at your local post office. Do two things
1) Check local post office.
2) Also, try checking the status at indiapost website. Sometimes domestic tracking is also shown in Indiapost and it is more detailed.

Since it has been 9 days, you need to act fast. Else they may send it back to China

Thanks a lot for advising to check for local post status. Checked that and found the below status:

Date Time Status at Status
24/07/2014 02:30:05 KOLKATA RMS (CRC) Article Bagged to CRC DELHI
24/07/2014 04:22:51 KOLKATA RMS (CRC) Bag Despatched to CRC DELHI
25/07/2014 09:33:11 CRC DELHI Bag is Received
25/07/2014 09:39:40 CRC DELHI Bag is Opened
25/07/2014 16:26:46 CRC DELHI Article Bagged to VASANT VIHAR-1
25/07/2014 16:37:47 CRC DELHI Bag Despatched to VASANT VIHAR-1

But I am more surprised now. If the package reached vasant vihar on 25/07/2014, why has it not reached me as yet!!

Local post office will keep your parcel for a week at max and then they will send it back to the Foreign post office. I think it is already late and on Monday, you should visit the local post office at the earliest.

Let us hope so https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif
I think they will send it back to Delhi Foreign Post office only, so it should be easy to track down.

No Luck…. Called up Vasant Vihar-1, they said for your address the package will go to Jor Bagh Post Office and if we would have got, we would have sent it there already or back to DIMC… Checked at Jorbagh, no package https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_sad.gif https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_sad.gif

Should I go and check DIMC office tomorrow or wait for the package???

Yes, go there & track your parcel ASAP. B’coz our indian post as too lazy employees. the parcel will get lost either in indian post dept OR it will return back to the sender,.

Note that, the International parcel will be delivered to the only person on whose name the parcel is sent to. If your friend/family in behalf of you wants to take the parcel also, the postman will not hand it to them, you should be there to receive it in personal.

While tracking international parcels, if you don’t understand the status of tracking, then just check whether it is (otb) or (inb). Otb → outbound (still your parcel has not reached your country OR has reached your country customs) & Inb → Inbound (Your parcel is within your country, either with customs/post office).

Did people at Jor Bagh or Vasant vihar actually checked the status in their computers?

Postal employees have access to a different tracking website which is sometimes more detailed than Indiapost or ipswebtracking. We need a login id, password to check status in that.

The only option left is to act:
1) You have to visit any of the post office and check the current status of the parcel in their website.
2) Visit DIMC at the earliest. Online Status will also confirm that it has been returned to DIMC.
DIMC keeps the parcel for 15-30 days only. If you do plan to visit DIMC, then the actual custom deppt will not help you. There are other deptts that take care of this, they are more helpful as well and they told me that they keep records for 30 days only

I once lost a package myself. I visited Delhi 2 months afterwards and nothing could be done then. So i can’t say how much chance you have of tracking this parcel.

Hi

Am reading all the posts. I too have ordered a music pod from singapore. Please help me out which tracking sites you are using.
I am currently tracking on:
http://www.17track.net/en/result/post…ml?

It is giving info as

Local Date and Time Country Location Event Type Mail Category Next Office Extra Information

i am now scared by reading all above posts. This was supposed to be a gift for my husband & even the vendor site & various other sites assured delivery within 14 days. But now i am really worried.

Can someone help with any other tracking site infor. And does the above status mean that my package has reached Kolkata? Can anyone share helpline nos.
