Regarding Subscription

Dear Sir/Madam,

Kindly find herewith file containing my subscription details inorder
to subscribe for HT copy for the year. Also enclosing, bank statement
copy.

You can see that the cheque had been issued on 09-12-2010. But the
same had been deposited on 30-12-2010. Since I did not have
insufficient funds in the account on 30th December, I was fined for
cheque bounce Rs. 386/- for the same. How would I know that HT won't
deposit the cheque within few days. Sachin, the person who visited my
place did not inform me of any such thing.

I really dont understand why did you not deposit the cheque within
next 2-3 days after the same had been issued. The details of the
person from HT who visited to collect the cheque is given below:

Name: Sachin Sagare
Employee ID: T18X58

I spoke with Sachin, he said he is not responsible for the same and
asked me to take up this matter with you. I also sent SMS but received
no calls.
Request you to do the needful and refund the amount of Rs. 386/-.

Thanks & Regards,
Chanak Doshi

Coupons not received

I had given the subscription for Hindistan Times for Rs. 199/- during December 2009 and the cheque was debited from my Punjab National Bank Account on 13 Jan 2010. No coupons have been received so far. Also the assured gift of tupperware tiffin set not received.

Written complaint given to your rep. who visited our house through the newspaper vendor during May 2010 has also not helped in getting us the coupons as well as the gift.

Please reconcile and do the needful.

Fraud by advertising contests

Dear All,

Please don't reply to contests published in Hindustan times, they are merely making money by each SMS costing Rs. 3.0 Minimum. After reply they can say that you have won, & SMS again to give your Name & Address.
I have 2 such SMS saved in my mobile phone in which they said that you have won the gift, but so fat no gift is received after several reminders to them thru email.
Details are as below:
1) In the month of June'09, HT placed ad of its own regarding some cricket related contest, in which I sent SMS & received a message back on 12th June'09 that I won a gift, no gift received so far.
2) In an'2010 a contest of Fiama Di Wills published, I sent SMSs for it, I received a message on21.01.09 that your prize will be sent within 15 days, so far no prize is eceived.

Hi, I talked to Ms.Tabassum today at [protected] and got the same response that my coupon has been sent to my...

Non delivery of newspaper

My father in law had subscribed to Hindustan Times News Paper vide "Form No:R133966" for two years. Subscription was in the form of monthly coupons to be given to news paper vendor on monthly basis. Of the two years subscribed we had received coupons only for first twelve months. HindustanTimes was supposed to give the remaining 12 months coupon at end of first year term. But Hindustan Times did not give the coupon so I promptly called up the customer care on [protected] / [protected]. The response from customer care was highly irr-responsible and negligent. Initially they said the coupons were dispatched to the newspaper vendor directly. So we conveyed the same to the vendor and in anticipation of coupons he supplied the news paper for two months. Even then the subscription coupons were not delivered. So we had pay the vendor separately for two months.So we had to incur a loss on the differential amount we paid to Hindustan Times and what actually the news paper costs. Then I called up the customer care again they said there was a delay in dispatch and they were sorry about it and would be dispatched immediately. But till date we have not received the coupons and the money for one year of subscription has also not been re-funded. Now it has come to notice that Hindustan Times has delivered the coupon to vendor directly instead of the subscriber. Vendor is forging the subscribers signature in the coupon and claiming the money. On talking to people in HT we are still being promised the subscription will be started but we have not received the paper till date and we see no action from people are Hindustan Times.

    Subject: Coupons not given by HT to the Vendor.

    Reference
    Coupon number: 423829
    Payment made on 31st October 07
    Vendor's name: Santosh S. Ghogare
    Depot: Byculla

    To whomsoever is concerned.

    We had applied subscription for HT paper in my Dad's name and have been receiving the HT newspaper till last week. The Vendor stopped giving us the paper and told us that they have not received the coupon from HT office to carry on for the months ahead. I rang up HT customer helpline and informed the executive about it and he told me that they will need to get back to me.

    I have been trying to call the the helpline and is just continuously ringing, no answer. Its just about 8 and half months that we are receiving the paper, whereas the commitment was to be for two years.

    After calling on two numbers 6776 4242 and 6776 4248, there is no response absolutely.
