Cancellation & Refund Policy

IMR Media Pvt Ltd and IDYB Publications Pvt Ltd believe in helping their customers as far as possible, and have, therefore, a liberal cancellation and refunds policy.

Cancellation of Subscription

Subscribers may cancel their subscriptions at anytime and obtain a refund of the residual value of unfulfilled subscription cost paid.

The residual value will be calculated after taking the full cover price of all issues supplied. This subscription availed cost will be deducted from the subscription amount paid. If there is any balance due then same will be refunded.

For example, if a subscriber has paid Rs 900 for a full years subscription and cancels after 6 months, the cost of six issues supplied at the cover price comes to Rs 600 @ Rs 100 per issue being the cover price of one issue. Hence Rs 300 will be refunded.
