At Vritika Lifestyle, we strive to make sure you have the best experience while selecting and buying your favorite Indian Ethnic Outfits. Despite our best efforts to keep our customers happy, there are times when you might feel the need to return your product for circumstances beyond your or our control.

We have listed everything below about our Cancellation and Refunds policy so that in case you do decide to cancel your order or seek refunds, you do not face an iota of a problem.

Q: Can I cancel my order in case I change my mind after ordering?

Yes, you can choose to cancel all Non-Ready to Ship products, only if done within 24 hours of placing it. We will initiate 100% refund of your money and a confirmation of the same will be sent to you via e-mail, though we would have loved to have added a new Ethnic Fashion statement to your wardrobe. Please be apprised that Ready to Ship orders are not eligible for cancellations as they are despatched within 24 hours of the receipt of order. Order of Stitched or Customized items can only be cancelled within 24 hours. And in such a case, customers will not be able to return the item.  

Q: Why a "24 Hour" deadline?

As soon as your order is confirmed, an action is initiated at our end. The process of picking, packaging, customizing and logistics start, and the ordered product in most cases has already passed through a couple of phases. In case a garment has to be ready, or customized, the process is already underway.

Q: Could there be a delay at Vritika because of "unforeseen circumstances"?

We try our best to assure that your ordered products are shipped out to you in the promised time, but at times there are chances of delay in processing due to unavailability of stock, or other unavoidable circumstances. In such a situation, we will send you a formal communication requesting you to:

Accept a Gift Card of equivalent value which you may use to purchase an alternate Ethnic Fashion Statement

Opt to receive a refund of your money.

Q: But if I am unable to find an alternative Ethnic Fashion Statement?

In such cases, we ensure that a complete refund (inclusive of the product cost and shipping charges) is initiated at the earliest sans any deductions. We also offer a compensation by way of a gift card or discount coupon depending upon the order value and delay in communication.

Q: Oops! I "missed" adding a critical detail while placing the order. The possibility of correcting it?

No worries. Such situations are often encountered when customers forget to:

1) Update their complete shipping details;

2) Update measurement attributes; or

3) Verify or give their consent if required on certain pending notifications within the requested time As a policy, we try and reach out to our esteemed customers via their registered e-mail address. In case of non-receipt of any response, we try and give them a call. If we do not get a response in 15 days, we issue a Non-refundable Gift Card against cancellation of the order which the customers can use to place future orders with us. We share an update on the same via email as well. Remember, we try and keep our customers posted at each and every stage of their order with us and it really helps to have your inputs at the right time.

Q: I received the order. But there's an issue. Can I return my ordered items?

Yes, you can. At Vritika, we don't believe in making customers, but strengthening our family with happy family members. We take stringent measures to deliver Fashion Delight to our customers globally, in the best possible condition but there's always a possibility thata. Item(s) may get damaged during transit, or

Q: How soon should I get back to you?

Please reach out to us within 24 hours of receiving the order for reporting any complaints with regards to the product received as damaged, found with the manufacturing defect, or any other issues.

Q: In what scenarios would you not accept any returns?

3 - Shipping Back the Items

When Shipping back the items:

As would be advised in our return authorization e-mail, please send the items to us preferably through a reputed, registered courier/airmail service only to avoid any transit-related issues.

Please try and ensure that you retain all the packaging material along with the product. Do not remove tags, stickers, etc. Unless you are sure you want to keep the product. Presence of original tags is a must to process returns.

100% of the value of the goods including Shipping Costs and Stitching charges (as applicable) will be ensured.

In any case, the refunds will not exceed the actual amount paid by you.

Q: But I had to pay the courier service for shipping the item back!

If we end up making an error in spite of best efforts, the extra shipping cost incurred during the return of the product will be refunded. In any other case, the Shipping Charges and other expenses would be borne by you.

Q: That’s great. But are there any reasons you might not provide me with all 2 options or no option?

Vritika's Customer Care representative will reach out to you with limited alternatives for below cases:

If there was a Delay due to God’s or the Government’s Intervention

There are times when the delivery of the goods is delayed due to unforeseen circumstances such as natural calamity, public holiday, etc. In such a case Vritika shall not refund, return or exchange any order on request.

In case you realize that you might have made an error while ordering or providing measurements, we would ask you to bear the additional charges of shipping and stitching, and in very rare cases cost of replacement of fabric, if any.

Q: How long does it usually take for Returned Items to reach back to the Vritika Warehouse?

International shipments usually take between 6 to 8 weeks in transit if done through postal service. Any shipment returned within India takes 3-4 days to reach if sent through DTDC. Exact time taken for transit would depend on the nature of the product and your location.

Q: I'm thinking about seeking a Refund. Are there any specific points to know?

The Refund will be initiated within 2 (business) days if you choose this option, which will be credited back to you as per your bank/credit card guidelines.

Q: And how long will the refund process take?

Payments and Transfers are dependent on Banks and Local Laws. We've still attempted to estimate the time it might take to get your funds reimbursed below:

Q: Are there any reasons there could be a delay at the Bank/Credit Card companies end?

For transactions made using Debit/Credit cards, the time taken for refunds depends solely on the service provider.

For customers transacting via Nationalized Banks, please expect a bit of delay in processing since they tend to have longer lead times.

Please be apprised that Banks send an SMS to customers for a credit amount of more than INR 5000 only. In case your refund is less than INR 5000 kindly check your bank or credit card account confirmation receipt of funds.

In case you used a Coupon Code or a Gift Card to place your order, the refund will be made in the same form. No cash refunds can be made in such a case as per governing laws.

Q: What about charges levied for International Transaction Fees and Local Taxes?

International Transaction Fees:

Cross-Border or, International Transaction Fees, if any charged by the respective bank from your credit or debit card will not be refunded. Please note these are hidden charges levied by your bank on you, and not by us. Customers must contact their bank for additional information on these charges

Local Taxes :

The VAT / Custom Duty / Local Taxes / Import Duties are borne directly by the customer as per local laws, to be paid at the time of delivery as advised by the respective courier partner. We will not refund any such charges, if applicable during order delivery.
