Shipping Policy for Domestic Orders (within India)
Shipping Policy for International Orders (outside India)
All international orders (outside India) would be processed within 2 working days and shipped through an international courier company or Indian Post services as per the availability of services.
Customs Clearance for International Orders
For some countries, if the need arises, our carrier will have to get customs clearance for your goods before delivering them to you. Any additional taxes, import duties or customs charges levied in this process will be charged to you. You are liable to pay the carrier for those charges in such cases. So we recommend that you be aware of the laws and regulations governing the import of goods in the country where you want the items shipped. The customer is responsible for customs clearance within the stipulated time failing which the goods would be destroyed by the customs department and no refund would be made.
Remote Area Surcharge (RAS) for International Orders
According to the policies of the international carrier, an additional surcharge may be levied if the shipping address is defined by the carrier as a remote area.
This Remote Area Surcharge (RAS) would not be charged at the time of placing the order. Instead, it would be informed to you before shipping the goods. In such a case, you have to pay the surcharge through the website. If the surcharge is not paid within 3 days after our notification, then we would cancel your order and refund the amount paid towards the items in full.
