Times of India Newspaper / Newspaper not delivered

1 India Review updated:

I am Nikhil and a resident of Madhapur,Hyderabad.Last couple of weeks ago i had taken a special offer subscription of Times of India Newspaper in which the agent charged me a sum of Rs 175 for a period of 6 months, which i paid. But unfortunately,i never get the newpaper and even if by some way it reaches me i never get it on time. Every morning i call up the agent atleast two times to know the reason.Alas! for a newpaper of Rs2-3,everyday i am spending Rs2-3 on phone calls.
Is this the way this newpaper company handles its businesses??Or was it my fault that i paid the money before i receive the newspaper??I wish TOI gets back to me and resolve this issue.

    I am Pavan KPHB RD#3. I have same problem with Times of India News Paper I paid Rs 175 on 03-30-2008 for 6 months, But still now nothing. But some times the Times of India People will call and tell " From Tomorrow Onwards You will Recieve The Paper" it never comes. Every time The area(Road #3, Kphb) Manager Mr. Krishna says "i will Pay you money, if you wont recieve it tomorrow".

    Is this the way this Newspaper company treat their NewsPaper Readers

    Yes, I fully agree with the complaints, I myself being a victim.
    I was told that TOI finally launched the News Paper in Chennai w.e.f 14th April, 2008. I had subscribed to this as early as during first week of February, 2008 ! But didn, t get the paper even on 1st May. Repeated phone calls, as a complainant reported, were of no avail. I do understand the so many difficulties to be faced before launching a News Paper that too internationally reputed one like TOI. Perhaps the Management set up at Chennai is not of experts.

    In the month of Dec'09 some of your employee called me up for renewable of your subscription. I agreed for renewable with new schemes. I had paid Rs 390/- (TOI) & Rs 9/-(for Sunday TOI) The two order nos. are mentioned below:

    The Times of India - Order No. RTOY 3090563

    Sunday Times of India - Order No. RTOY 3190563

    Booking date : 06/12/09

    Till date I haven't received the one year subscription coupons & my newspaper vendor is shouting for payment. Its really painful service which I am facing for last two years. In the back of the receipt you have mentioned two nos. 033-22137076/85/86 but this nos. are not at all working for past two years.
