Hey, there are various other websites like Flipkart where you could get a good deal. Also you can go to a retail store in your city to buy one. I would suggest to use Flipkart and go for a assured seller.
Buying retail may have a plus point, that you can check the edition of the book before buying. Always prefer to buy the latest edition as it is the most updated one.

PLEASE INFORM ASAP What is necessary CLAT score for GNLU general, as I will be appearing for CLAT 2021 and I want to pursue Bcom Llb (Hons.) from GNLU. MOHD FAAIZ HAYAT
Your score totally depends on the kind of paper that comes, what really matters is your All India rank, that is what you should be worrying about.
You see my point, score does not matter what matters is your rank . Total number of all India seats in nlus is around 1400 excluding reserved seats, you should aim for those seats and not worry about your score if you have a good rank.
A score around 130 is considered good if you are looking for GNLU . Always aim to be in top tier.
Hope this would help you.
