I average around 23 secs using Fridrich, and I only know:
-Intuitive and Alg F2L
-All PLLs
-Only Beginner's Method OLL

Seriously, you gave us nothing to work off of, to know what you should improve on.
How do you expect us to tell you what to work on, without us knowing what you're doing bad?

Also, you should probably focus on getting sub30, instead of sub20, first.
Especially if your average is nearly 40secs.

You're already using Fridrich, might as well just continue. That'd probably be the easiest way to get sub 20, or at least most efficient way.

You don't understand. You blame your speed on the cube alone - "bt due to my cube i hv a slow solve." It's not your cubes fault you didn't solve it fast enough. Order a cube online. Then practice. Then practice more. Time your first two layers. If it takes you more than 12-14 seconds you haven't practiced enough.

I got a 33 cent cube when I was in South America, it's probably the same type. It's a really bad cube and you're probably not going to get much faster with that type of cube.

There are plenty of places you can buy good cubes from cheaply. I would recommend lightake.com but they are having a minor situation at the moment.

If you are living in India you can order from Rack The Brain . You can mail them at [email protected]. They will give you a Lan Lan. The stickers are really bad so order a set of stickers also. It is a fast enough cube. Far better than that 20 rupee one. It will cost you something around 500. You can make the payment through a bank transfer. You would be atleast knowing someone with a bank account if not a credit card.

You can also get Funskool cubes from stores. Go to any Landmark store. They have them or pester your nearby gift shop. They will get it for you. But you will need a silicone lube to get that smooth for which you can mail Pidlite or Rackthebrain.

By the way join the google group speedcubingindia. There you can get more details of competitions and available cubes in India.

Also where in India do you live?
