Some existence results on best approximation are proved without starshaped subset and affine mapping in the set up of $q$-normed space. First, we consider the closed subset and then weakly compact subsets for said purpose. Our results improve the result of Mukherjee and Som (Mukherjee, R. N., Som, T., A note on an application of a fixed point theorem in approximation theory, Indian J. Pure Appl. Math. 16(3) (1985), 243–244.) and Jungck and Sessa (Jungck, G., Sessa, S., Fixed point theorems...
