I am sure many threads have dealt with the Nexus 4 in great detail. I am however only laying down the present situation regarding Nexus 4 imports and hoping to clear some of the confusion about the recent rise in customs duty.

To start with, the total cost of getting a Nexus 4 (16GB) in your hand in India is Rs. 23726 (and this is for my specific situation which may vary)

The breakdown:

Nexus 4 (16GB) + shipping + tax = Rs.21500 (if shipped to Oregan then the cost is only Rs. 20020
Shipping to India + customs = Rs.2364 (PPO Box) Shipping, Handling & Taxes: 618 + Duty & Clearance Fees: Rs. 1,746


My order was placed on 3rd March and shipped on 6th March by Google. I used PPO box to ship it to Bangalore.

Since PPOBox does only have insurance up to $200, How safe is it to order that expensive phone? I want to order one but kind of skeptical about the "missing" packet from Custom (dock) stories. :-(

I think he had few cases too along with it.

If customs takes the actual declared value then duty should be approx 3.5k but then you can never depend on Indian customs officers.
