      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.


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

      'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

      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.

      '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.

    Good for starters

    Ordered it on 25th November, received it on 27th morning. I have ordered both Paper- 1 (this one) and Paper- 2 books. I'm still in college and I don't go for coaching or anything and I started preparing recently. So, I thought I should start my journey from this book. It was priced 971 and when i checked two days later, it was priced 1026 (I did get 8% discount though).
    About this book:
    - It is big and tad heavy.
    - Print and paper quality are average but good enough.
    - Simple language.

    Let me give my opinion on this book.

    1) Useful for quick review for those who already has some level of preparation
    2) Covered almost all areas, no no need to refer to multiple books at last movement
    3) Gives a good number of questions to solve and helps to check our level of knowledge

    1) No clarity on many concepts
    2) Indian economy was badly dealt section (focusing only on contemporary issues, no basics of economy)
    3) Polity was only about facts, no concepts
    4) Fist time read...

    Good Book but not a substitute

    Its a thick book, which gives you a detailed overview of all the topic for the exam. This is not a substitute or a quick guide to success for the Civil Services exam but its a good book to fill the gaps of your NCERT reading. Read it along with the latest NCERT books and it will help you cover the basic syllabus for the exam.

    good..but not enough as solo source..

    Its probably the best manual available..but if you are serious about your preparation you will depend on other books for most topics,especially ncerts.. The positive in buying this book is the endless number of questions available at the end of most chapters..Plus it will be easy to revise close to exam due to good number of tables and all..must buy.. but do not expect full paper 1 information from it..

    A nice book you can rely upon

    After discussion with other aspirants of CSAT I decided to purchase this volume of GS manual and I think I have made the right choice as what I was looking for I got in this book. Obviously going deep in any subject/topic is possible only by searching reference and study material. However for CSAT-I point of view, this is a perfect book. One has not to waste his/her valuable time after searching and collecting study material. It almost covers everything and each topics are explained in exami...

    Good Book

    It's General Science content is crisp and well organised. Also, the questions given at the end of each section are extremely helpful. But the issue is JBH is giving this book at 750/- only ie more than 40% discount. I think Flipkart must review its pricing criteria.
