      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 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.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      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.

    Best starter for Indian Constitution!

    The name of the author itself gives credibility to the book. Wonderful synopsis, clear views and real examples whereever required!

    A lot of myths have been broken and and doubts have been cleared. One example: The parliament has no power to impeach a judge of high-court/supreme-court. It can only recommend for the impeachment of a judge to the President.

    Good read for a serious reader and a must for anyone preparing for UPSC CSAT. Would be a good read even for those with no knowledge for Co...

    Quick understanding of constitutional law. Buy it.

    This is a perfect book for somebody who wish to understand the constitutional provisions simply. It does not contain unnecessary commentary and list of unending cases. It deals with each topic very precisely without missing out on anything. One can read it along with DD basu if she or he wants to make a detailed study but on the other hand also wants to understand the provisions quickly. I was a little apprehensive before buying it, but it turned out to be a smart choice. Highly recommended.
