We recently sent 2 packets (1+1), each less than 500 gms. The total weight for both packets were not more than 650 gms. The origination point was a DTDC channel partner shop at Noida, Sector 57, near our office, and destination was Coimbatore, Tamilnadu. The DTDC rates for the national plus service for this weight is not more than Rs160, according to their tariff. I was charged Rs 600 by their channel partner. When I complained, the channel partner connected me to his office (which I assume was DTDC Noida office) who confirmed the rates on the mobile phone. The Noida office personnel who booked this consignment might also be involved in this scam.
Here are the Details:
Details of your Noida branch that serviced this:
Office Name : NOIDA BRANCH
Address : E-21A, SEC.8,, NOIDA
Pincode : 201301
Email : firstname.lastname@example.org
I have written evidence of their channel partner collecting Rs 600 for this consignment (Almost four times the cost of the service).
Always be careful before you do anything with DTDC.
