Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 2-3 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 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.

'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.

'Out of Stock'

Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.

'Imported'

Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

'Back In Stock Soon'

The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

'Temporarily Unavailable'

The product is currently out of stock and is not available for purchase. The product could to be in stock soon. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know when it is available for purchase.

'Permanently Discontinued'

This product is no longer available because it is obsolete and/or its production has been discontinued.

'Out of Print'

This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

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 INDIAN CONSTITUTION (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 166

The Oxford India Short Introductions are concise, stimulating, and accessible guides to different aspects of India. Combining authoritative analysis, new ideas, and diverse perspectives, they discuss subjects which are topical yet enduring, as also emerging areas of study and debate.

Giving identity to over a billion people, the Indian Constitution is one of the world’s great political texts. Drafted over six decades ago, its endurance and operation have fascinated and surprised many. In this short introduction, Madhav Khosla brings to light its many features, aspirations, and controversies. How does the Constitution separate power between different political actors? What form of citizenship does it embrace? And how can it change? In answering questions such as these, Khosla unravels the document’s remarkable and challenging journey, inviting readers to reflect upon the theory and practice of constitutionalism in the world’s largest democracy.

Madhav Khosla studied law at the National Law School of India University, Bangalore, and Yale University. He is currently a PhD candidate in political theory at Harvard University.

Reviews

‘Written in clear, jargon-free prose, this critical study will be a marvellous resource for lawyers and non-lawyers alike.’

—Justice Ruma Pal, Former Judge, Supreme Court of India

‘A wonderful introduction to an exciting subject. Khosla presents an analytical and deeply insightful account of one of the landmark constitutions of our time.’

—Justice Aharon Barak, Former Chief Justice of Israel


‘The Indian Constitution anchors India’s political identity and has shaped the country’s destiny—though not always in ways the founders anticipated. Yet, for all its formal centrality and its easy invocation by disparate political projects, the ambiguities of its commitments and the vicissitudes of its history remain little understood. In this remarkable book ... Madhav Khosla compels us to think seriously both about the fitful evolution of constitutional interpretation and about the place acquired by the Constitution in our democratic life. Khosla’s outstanding book is far and away the most stimulating introduction to the life of our Constitution: and it signals the arrival of an important new voice in our intellectual life.’
 

—Sunil Khilnani, author of The Idea of India

Something apart from the usual rhetoric!!

Book is in the form of essay, with divided topics and perhaps most basic ones existing in the contemporary constitutional debates in India. Author is succinct, clear and cogent in writing. Requires basic understanding of the subject. Presents an academic view point.

Not for the layman

A refreshingly new book on the Indian Constitution, through the lens of case-law - in just over 160 pages. But as is claimed, the book is not totally jargon-free, and is definitely not recommended for the uninitiated. Though, a preliminary study or understanding of the constitution perhaps, shall suffice. Also, keep a bare act of the Constitution handy while reading this book. All in all, a good and sprinty read, but this definitely SHOULD NOT be the first book you read on the Indian Constitution. ( Perhaps one can start with Subhash Kashyap, or D.D. Basu- though the latter is quite exhaustive…

book with new taste

There are plenty of books on the constitution of India but this book gives a new perspective about readings in constitution. The book is not any typical book but picks some parts of the constitution and elaborate it adequately.The book is divided in four chapters discussing the separation of powers and federalism in good length.Worth purchasing.
