Times of India / Default in delivering the newspapaer

1 India Review updated:

My name is Y. Srinivasa Rao. I have subscribed for The Times of India Dhamaka Offer ( 6 months package ) vide consent no. 60846 / dt 17.7.07 and Sunday Times Dhamaka offer vide consent no. 62018 / dt 17.7.07 by paying Rs 175 . My date of implementation was 1.8.2007. I started receiving the issues from 1st August. Later on , the delivering of the news paper has become very irregular. till date , I have nearly missed about 10 to 15 issues. I contacted the concerned vendor ( Narsimlu ) who was supposed to deliver at my place ( vasanthanagar, Kukatpally, Hyderabad ) . Once or twice he responded that the incharge boy has forgotten to put the newspaper. Then onwards , whenever I inquired, He said not call him but to inquire from the Times office. As per his explanation , my name was not in the subscribers' list . Then I inquired with the Times Office - customer care . I first booked the complaint on 26 th of Oct 2007. But there was not response and the default continued . I again on 31 st oct 2007 booked another complaint , and even then Iam not receiving my Issues . The Times of india people , being so irresponsible are losing the customer trust . I hope The Times of India management will wake for this complaint atleast and be prompt in their action !!!!!!!!

Hello Sir,

We had subscribed to times of india through the executive who visited
our home D1/80, Janakpuri. The order no that we placed is 6696. He had
promised for a free gift also, which has not been delivered yet.
Please look into the matter.

Hi Everybody,

Unknowingly I subscribed Times of India in Chennai for 6 months, I ordered this stupid on the Month of February (where else the news paper started publishing only on April 14th) but so far today is 13th of August I have never received a single news paper.

I called these customer service people for more than 20 times (but it was just a waste of my money and time) and even I have sent more than 5 emails but I haven’t received even a singly reply mail from them IT’s REALLY A VERY VERY VERY VERY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE... Every time when I call them they say that it will be delivered by tomorrow morning but nothing happened so far.

I really don’t know where to go ahead and complain about this ### news paper.

EVERYBODY, PLEASE DON'T EVER SUBSCRIBE TO THIS NEWS PAPER...They really don’t know that they are doing there.

Because IT SUCK's... I thought of writing more indecent words but since its an public forum... That’s all about it.

Times of INDIA - Un Responsible, Cheats to customers.
I had TOI subscription for 6 months and after 2.5 months, they have stopped delivering papers.
Filed a complaint -- Number 202135 to local TIMES office (ph. no. 040-23355335) couple of times but no action taken, they feel sorry but don't do anything.
They gave me couple of numbers but no one acts on this complaint.
