      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      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'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Available'

      Products listed as ‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

      The product is not released yet. You can however ‘book’ an order for this. Shipping happens only after the product launch.

      '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?

      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 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 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.

    A Classic

    I've used the OALD ever since I can remember using dictionaries. It is perhaps the single most resourceful book you will ever own. I lost my copy while moving houses a few months back, hence the new copy.

    This edition has everything that a learner of English might need, irrespective of her/his level, really. The Oxford 3000 is a wonderful tool for beginners. The detailed yet concise 'how-to-write' guides at the back cover everything from CVs and presentations to reviews and summaries. Not a ...

    its good, but....

    For example, a simple word like 'tumid' is not included in this dictionary, which is included in even the oxford concise dictionary. There are many unecessary entries, and many words missing. I would suggest that people go for the concise instead, because this is more for students in school and college. Its constructed that way, and believe me I like this dictionary, but I just wish more sentences with examples were provided. I would recommend the cambridge advanced learners instead. Its muc...

    Magnificent.

    All time great ! A life long companion ! I've been using this since 1979. In every four or five years later - I only buy the revised and updated version. It consists almost all the requirements - pronunciations, examples of uses in sentences and many more that a dictionary user may need.
