I think if previously your orders arrived without such hassles on same mentioned address there shouldn't be any such reason for such an error.
If this another way of customs to deliberately trouble?

Black Hell! Same thing has happened to one of my shipments... it's heading back! It cleared Kolkata Customs and then got sent to a wrong local PO. They took it out for delivery even (in the wrong area) and then being unable to locate the address sent it back to the FPO apparently. Now it's heading back...



More Details:



I have ordered so many shipments before, never faced this issue till now. I wonder if this now is the heralding of a new trend of screw-jobs?

After the post number #1490 today 21/02 they update a new Retention Reason not to release the parcel which is 'Other' <----Don't know what is this? Below is the screenshot.



At this point, I'm 100% sure if that parcel get the release it will be charged an astronomical amount of custom duty.

Yes, retention reason 'other' may also mean your parcel is under clearance process.

Thank you Guys for the reply - You are right, The parcel release today itself, Let's see what happen as there is a new game introduced by India Post which is 'Insufficient Address'.

Anyhow the screenshot of recent status below.

I still dont understand why the sudden insufficient address thing is started? What the customs or post mean by this exactly?
We all are using same address for years on Ae unless you update.
My address is mentioned in such a detail with landmarks and markings that even a brain hammeriage or mental person will locate it easily.

Any experience with DHL from china? I have ordered a car part from alibaba and shipping the seller said is DHL. Total item cost including shipping is 150$. Any idea on duty to expect? As i guess DHL will always levy duty unlike indiapost.
