Major destinations are serviced by known national courier companies and deliveries normally take 1-4 days. You can track the status and location of your book parcel after dispatch on the respective courier’s website using the book parcel’s tracking code. Remote locations get serviced through India Post, a Government of India undertaking. There is NO online tracking currently available for book parcels sent by Registered Post. Delivery through India Post normally takes longer and could extend to more than 2 weeks for some locations in rare situations. Kindly be patient – inform us if there is an inordinate delay and we will follow up with Indian Postal Department.
When you place an order, the estimated shipping/dispatch and estimated delivery time will be specified based on the availability of the item, your delivery location & coverage by our empanelled couriers.
