      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.

      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?

      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.

    Pitch It ! Amazing Book, innovative, interesting and a perfect blend of Management and Cricket

    Pitch It ! is an amazing Management Book. Innovative, interesting and absolutely fascinating and a delight to read. Devoid of boring management jargons, this book is refreshingly different. It has 60 very interesting cricketing incidents and these are seamlessly knit with corporate case studies. A very good ‘light read’. Superb !

    A new idea - an interesting read

    Cricket is one of those things to which Indians can relate to instantly. That makes it one of the most useful medium to convey a set of ideas easily to the Indians. Mr. Dev Prasad did a fabulous job of using cricket to describe complex corporate case studies in a lucid and palatable manner. The book appeals both the mass and the class. Kudos to the author.
