The Hindu - News paper

I made an online subscription of one year for THE HINDU newspaper from February 17, 2016. Initially, the vendor (Mr. N B Khot) was not taking any delivery charges but for the last 2-3 months, he has been demanding Rupees 25 extra for delivering the newspaper. I refused to pay delivery charges as it is already included in the package, when I made the whole payment for one year. Please look into the matter and arrange for some other vendor who does not demand for extra delivery charges from his/her customers. Or you may please refund my balance amount and take your coupons back.
Please look into the matter urgently.
Thanks

The Hindu - Newspaper

I have made online subscription for The Hindu Newspaper from February 17, 2016 to February 16, 2017 (for a year). The vendor had been supplying newspaper regularly but for the last 2-3 months, he has been asking for extra delivery charges of Rupees 25 /- every month. I was told that the delivery charges were already included in the payment made online for subscription. Now, he is insisting for extra delivery charges. Please look into the matter at the earliest as I have not received the newspaper for the last 5 days and if possible, arrange for an alternate vendor as the current one has stopped delivering.

Thanks and regards,

I have subscribed to annual subscription plan of The Hindu Newspaper. The supply has been very irregular. Even if they 'choose' to deliver, they deliver newspaper at 8 in the morning (It's almost past one hour from my office working time). Number of complaints to Hindu Complaint (Toll Free Number - 180030001878) doesn't provide any resolution. They give lot...

The Hindu - Irregular delivery of news paper

Sir, I subscribed to THE HINDU daily ENGLISH newspaper vide their order no.HYD520365 DTD 03/03/2014 by paying Rs.699/ (FOR ANNUAL ). F or the last 20 days I am not getting news paper. On enquiry the vendor revealed that the paper boy is stopped the job and promised to see the alternative. After few days, I complained to the HINDU customer care, they in turn handed over the complaint to Mr.Vinod, Area Manager, The Hindu. Surprisingly, he is saying my subscription is only for half-yearly and requested me to scan my subscriber voucher. Same has been scanned to him. The Area Manager has handed over this to his subordinate Mr. T.Saibaba (RRE). On my own interest when I contacted Mr. Saibaba, he is asking me to find out who is the paper boy coming to my area. So, I really got annoyed with all this and started purchasing from nearest stationary shop. My complaint is that either THE HINDU Customer care or the Area Manager/RRE no body bothers. Morever Mr.Saibaba is giving a task to me that I have to find out a paper boy and have to inform him. Kindly look into this and help me. Thanking you, R Venkata Subbaiah.
