Recently i was trying to buy a new laptop. After much research and price comparisons i zeroed in on APU A10 Samsung Laptop. I thought even if i have to pay a bit more its fine but i’ll order from flipkart because of its reliability.
But i was shocked to see that flipkart doesn’t deliver to my pincode. Nor to any pincode in my whole city. Even the state capital Lucknow is not supplied by it.

Almost all other e-commerce websites deliver to my city Allahabad. And its a quite developed city with all courier services present.

can someone pls explain? Any representative of flipkart.com on desidime?

most sites don’t ship high cost electronic to up and wb due to taxes and sales tax/octroi papers that has to be collected beforehand and send to seller failing which your item gets held 7 out of 10 times and poor seller might have to suffer coming to up or WB and releasing it if you fail to do so.

idiots are everywhere, desidime isn’t exception. https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_toungueout.gif

and yes, many of the sellers on ebay or sc ships to up but you’ll not get bill attached on the courier cover. sites that do so for xample most power selles selers on ebay or yebhi or flipkart or hs18 won’t ship electronic items.

here is list of forms/papers required before shipment to be sent to seller (since rule says papers are to be given by shipper) in several state, for UP it’s form 38

Why are you so bothered about a red face then? https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_surprised.gif

you are from UP, hoping that you will understand this: kutte bhaukte hai..hathi mast chalta rehta hai ..

apart from paper work..there is high theft cases in UP and north eastern states…many of those shipping to these places gets your signature before hand stating that they won’t be held responsible for stolen parcels..

These Days Flipkart is sending goods from their own logistics which is e kart they deliver only to those areas where ekart is present, right now they are limited to very few cities of various states, in M.P itself they are delivering in only 4 cities previously they have tie up wid various companies such as bluedart, ff and dtdc so goods will be delivered across all india, they have their own limitations now resulted in less sales i suppose.

same bro…i had to purchase a laptop 2 years back and was shocked to see lucknow isn’t in their serviceable area and same for other electronic items:evil: ….i don’t know much about the paperwork but i have bought electronic items fron snapdeal, ebay, yebhi, hs18, indiatimes and flipkart is way beyond these companies in terms of turnover, so fk should be the first one among them…but it still i am happy with fk cause it delivers mobile to lucknow https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_biggrin.gif
now isn’t mobile an electronic item?

i think they deliver mobile by the name of documents…

2 yrs back i ordered a LG optimus 2x from HS18… they delivered but in the courier receipt said that the parcel contained documents…

if it had mentioned mobile phone then i guess various logistical and paperwork problems…

what i don’t understand is why can’t flipkart also do this…. or best… allow us an option to send them a form 38/39 duly signed by sales tax officer…thus they can deliver…

Similar problem is with Dell. I bought a laptop 2 years back but had to send them Tax forms by courier [from Patna]. They shipped the product only after receiving the form.

I don’t face any problem like Tax Forms or octroi in MP.
Ye UP, Bihar,Jharkhand, WB, Maharastra etc ke Govt. extra smart kyun hain ye samjh me nhi aata. Faaltu me ham jaise logon ko problems hoti hai.

actually they are trying to prevent unauthorised reselling of products… sales tax forms are used to prove that product is for individual use and not for reselling…

Jise jo karna hai wo kar hi raha hai. People still keep smuggling by ordering in nearby states’ districts and then smuggling in by road. Police sab pata hone ke baad bhi kuch nhi karti. Ye sab bahane hai extra tax liabilty impose karne ke.

Yesterday I went to buy slippers to one of Gwalior’s Main Market and there the slippers had MRP as low as Rs. 5-10. Reason given was that these come from China and to avoid tax (which is a percentage of MRP), they quote such low MRP on products. Now which Govt. is fool enough not to understand that 5-10 me slippers nhi milte. Ham jaise logon ko ye open secret araam se pata hai and Police ko na ho ye ho hi nhi sakta.

So in short, they are not trying to stop anything, but just putting extra burden on us. Bas bahane mil gaye unhe.

Bada Market.. beside SBI Main Office. The MRP printed on stickers will be in the range of Rs. 5-30 but they will charge Rs50+. They won’t sell you at that MRP, they are just printed to save on taxes.
