Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 13-14 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Available'

For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

The Building Of Gandhinagar (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 207

This book will inform the reader of the thought processes, concepts and technical aspects that went into the designing and planning of Gujarat's new capital city, Gandhinagar. The author was the Town Planner of the project and has therefore the knowledge to provide first hand, matter-of-fact, unbiased information on this sparsely written subject in this seminal work of erudition. The book attempts to serve as a benchmark against which other sincere, knowledgeable, professional and informative books; written on the subject of designing and planning of capital cities; can be compared with. A record has become essential in view of recent attempts by some Consultants, either by design or imbecility, to dismantle and distort the original concept of Gandhinagar.In contrast, readers seeking peripheral information-unrelated to the basic concepts of Gandhinagar planning, such as, the geographical, historical, political and social conditions in Gujarat and India at the time the city was being planned, can look up a myriad of other books. Opinions and accounts of the elaborate behind the scene machinations of, and eulogies to, contemporary industrialists, architects and pseudo town planners are also not in short supply in such books, owing to the ease with which they can be written from second hand information, by biased writers far removed, physically and professionally, from the field of town planning and architecture. This book attempts to correct the imbalance and present the subject in its proper perspective.

The building of Gandhinagar New Capital of Gujarat

The narrative reveals how the plan of the new city evolved and is rooted In the socio-economic traditions of Gujarat. The physical manifestation of this evolution is well illustrated. This distinguishes it from the Chandigarh plan and dispels the commonly held miss-concept that Gandhinagar plan is a copy of Chandigarh plan. The genuine agony of the author at the willful distortion of the plan of the new city by some consultants perhaps in their greed to cash in on the land prices in the area between Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad will touch the hearts of all town planners. The book is a genuine and…

The building of Gandhinagar New Capital of Gujarat

It is really a very interesting book. The first person account of 'wheels within wheels' in administration, so typical of this country has been brought out so vividly. One marvels at the author’s memory as well as the ability to put down everything in words; what and why of how the author conceptualized making of Gandhinagar as well as the politicking behind it. I very much appreciated the due diligence of including so many maps, pictures and statistics that add value to the text.

First to review

The building of Gandhinagar New Capital of Gujarat

Having seen many cities in the world, I have often wondered as to what it takes to design and build a city. What distinguishes one city from another? In the first part of this book, the author starts by describing the machinations and politics of the 1960’s. Eventually, the author on his own merits was appointed as a planner to build the city of Gandhinagar. This, in itself, makes for a very interesting read. In subsequent chapters, the author illustrates in vivid detail, all the considerations that are to be made to make a city, not a lifeless concrete structure but a vibrant and ebullient en…
