I have ordered a DAC from hong kong. This site says my packet has left for destination - which is Noida, India - Hongkong Post - Mail Tracking

However, the link given there for Indian web site doesn't work - damn! Wasn't that expected of our government systems!!!
So I am left without a way to track the packet. I tried all track link on speedpost site but it has no information for my tracking number. I tried the numbers listed on the site - if they are landlines, no one picks them up, and there was one cell number. Isn't it obvious it will be switched off? I picked up email addresses from there and sent mail to 5 different address - isn't it obvious that no one would bother to respond? It has left HK on 17th Aug and there is no sign of the package. I am sure it would take another month of so for the Indian govt employees to clear it - if they ever do it.

Well, does anyone has any idea how to track this packet? Is there any thing I can do to wake up the sleeping postal department of India?

Depends...
In India it is tough to find the status unless its by private courier who will let you check the status online.

You could try contacting the seller and check with them if they can provide any additional info.

This is always the problem if you get stuff by EMS,USPS or any postal service tied to the Indian Postal service. There is no tracking within the country. Typically it can take anywhere from 2-3 weeks to 2 months till you get a notification. Since you are in Delhi its likely to be on the shorter side in terms of a wait. Contact your post office and find out the number for the customs wing of the postal service in your area and call them. They will in turn give you a local tracking number which they will always refer to. Till you get a notification from the Indian post you have no way to get any idea of timeline.

I had ordered Blu Rays on 27th July from Amazon UK, but received them only today. It can take upto a month sometimes. Have patience. I understand the frustration, been there.

You will get in 10 days Max !! You can track in their website only...why India's website ?? Even if the website is able to show the tracking data, it will be will be always be slow. You can still get to see the tracking data long after you receive the package !!

in hong kong post site - the link I have posted. It says the packet has left HK for its destination. Fruther tracking to be done on country specific site. But the link for Indian post is broken there.

bro the ems tracking option on the indiapost website does not work - meaning there is no trackign in India.

Recently I ordered/received 3 pieces from HK

1. Beta Brainwavz + E5 amp - dispatched on 7th August, received on 17th August
2. FM transmitter - dispatched don 13th July, received 28th July
3. MiniWatt Tube amp - dispatched 2nd July, received August 2nd week.

The trackign works till India customs - after that zilch. Wait for your stuff and pray that the stuff does not get broken, stolen etc. India post and the customs are notorious for mishandling stuff

Tracking within India is also done by the Hong Kong Post !! Ironically it is not done by India Post :lol:

btw, are you buying the Lampucera(modded) DAC board or the plain DAC board in Ebay ??
