In the case of shipping within Hyderabad, deliveries will be done in the time slot and date selected by the customer.  A person should be available at the given address to collect the shipment.

In the case of shipping to the USA, the shipping would be done on behalf of a relative or friend of yours residing in India. Products won’t be shipped from Vellanki Foods directly. So, for this we would need a local address and an identification card supporting the address for US shipping. The local address and ID should be submitted within 24hrs of placing the order. If not, the order would automatically be cancelled. Read cancellation policy for information related to refunds.

Please note that the delivery timing depends on a number of factors like: weather, unforeseen events, traffic conditions, customs clearance( in case of US shipping) and other special events. However, we will always endeavour to complete the delivery as early as possible and keep you updated in case of any changes. We are not responsible for any delay caused by any unforeseen time lags by the courier companies in delivering the parcels to the customer, or if the customer is not available at the time of delivery.
