Nope.

But I've done it at Chennai Airport.

It was time consuming, as in about half a day, and having a Tamil-speaking wife helped enormously, but it was not complex, and we were not asked to pay any duty on our household miscellanea (nothing electronic) and we were not faced with any corruption.

Sack the agents, take along a friend who speaks the local language, and do it yourself!

(I had a container from UK, on door-to-door, and the shipping agents handled the customs quickly and efficiently, and far more cheaply than I had even dreamed.
