debit card never delivered
dear sir i m having student account with icici bank vashi branch acc no 015101024041 since 2003.
Recently while doing some transaction thru net banking a request went for new debit cardwith grid (i dont know how?) free of charge. Thinking that its ok, i didnt take any step.Now when after around 3 months when i didnt get the new one and old one also stopped working i asked customer care. Their reply is quite disgusting as they are saying that it was sent by OVERNITE XPRESS and your address was out of coveragre so we destroyed it and you want again apply for a new one and rs 300 will be charged .
Surprisingly they have one branch of icici bank in the same town whom they are saying out of reach and is it my mistake if they are unable to deliver? atleast they should inform me or at leat send me an email?
hear is some extract from their email
dear customer care officer
it is your resposibility to deliver any paper/ card to the mentioned address not just if it is returned by some courier service then destroy it and even dont inform customer and sit nicely.it cud have been sent by speed post also.Or at least u cud have bothered to inform me by sending one normal email.
i think any address within india is accessable by you and no where in your terms and conditions it is mentioned that it has to be sent only by OVERNITE EXPRESS .What type of customer friendly attitude you are showing that is beyond my thoughts.
If possible activate my previous debit card, i am quite happy with that and yes i m not asking you to provide me grid no, i have this much basic sense that it is not safe to provide grid thru mail.
Why should i pay for any new debit card when the last one was not delivered only to me?? i neither destroyod it nor returned it, it is your headache to get it delivered in any mentioned address or update your bank terms and conditions that it only covers regions which are covered by OVERNITE EXPRESS .
See Mr. customer care officer, i know tactics used by ur good bank to raise charges on every small and big issues like not sending card then saying out of delivery area.FATEHPUR has one icici branch i hope your courier service is reaching there otherwise god knows how do u running that bank??
I want either my previous card activated or send me another free of charge other wise i am bound to visit RBI and /or consumer court coz i can not accept such silly reasons of OVERNITE EXPRESS.
