      What is the tentative delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      • 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.

      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.

    India in an actual account

    This book is a content of facts and figures beyond somebody's convenience. It has a wide and broader approach. It is beyond the drama of national politics and democracy. Unlike a biography is is an experience written from a literal foci.
