About buying something from China for India

I want to purchase one tent (mongolian tent) to one Chinese company and receive it in India (Tamil Nadu). This material is made of bamboo material, screws, cotton and pvc covers (total weight around 250 kg). It's packaged in crate. I buy  it for my own usage : Is it import ?

How to know the custom rules for this kind of material : fumigation certificate ? tax ? How long it take to customs to check such crate package ? What is the process ?

Thank you for your help


The details of import duty on such items can be had from the customs web site itself, or you can contact a local imports and exports agent or a consultant who will be able to guide you and let you know other formalities in this regard.

Thank you very much.

I visited this site, it's like jungle for me.

Is there any customs office in Chennai, gouvernemental ones ?

Because I imagine, agent charge high fees or maybe take percentage on the value of the good.
