I am B Ramanjaneyulu Reddy, a middle class person having two chits running with sriramchits at Ameerpet branch, Hyderabad. I am in need of money urgently so i went to bid the amount, but i was shocked after facing situations there.
The manager himself with the staff staff creates dummy bidders and bids for the chits and takes the money. The agents at shriram chits are also bidders, where they are not supposed to bid.
When asked for bidder details they try to manhandle me. They spoke very arrogantly.
The person who does all this is Srinivasan. I even complaint this to the manager, but the manager has not taken this matter at all seriously, he just said you people do not know the rules of the company, so better bid your chit in coming month.
This is one of the cheating company, I request concerned Govt. authorities to raid on this company to undig the cheatings done at every channel right from the agent to the Manager, and even in the website developed by them has no complaint option. This shows that cheating is their logo and motivation.
These persons here are cheating the public. Please do the needfull.
Yeah i already faced this situavation with the idiotic company, The same thing happened, while one of my friend has been cheated in the same way.I had lost faith with this company. The only measure is the Govt. should take necessary action on all the chit companys in the state, to safe guard the money.
During Auction, hardly 2 or 3 real bidders participate. But, while drawing the lot, the agents bid all the chits. Moreover, if a bidder is declared successfull prize winner, the company will take more than 1 month to release the prize money.
So, I request the compalinants to make a appeal to the Registar of Chit Funds (i.e., local Sub-registar office of the concerned area). The Sub-Registar is the Competent authority to look into the matter. Alternatively, one may take help of Consumer Court.
In my view, the Chit Fund company should ensure the following.
1. The agents should be STRICTLY be disallowed from bidding on behalf of their clients.
2. If the real bidder is cannot attend the auction, he should authorize his representative with duly filled and signed authorization form.
3. On receipt of Sureties, Verification should be conducted on top priority basis.
4. The company should not sit on the money for a longer time. They should ensure early disbursal after due diligence.
In addition to lodging a compalint online, I request you to write to the Branch Manager, Registart of Chit Fund and Consumer court. So that such situation do not recur.
NAD Kotha road Branch people are chating members by not accounting the receipts remitted in service centres and issuing legal notices. When the member approaches, the Branch Manager and lady staff are arguing very badly forgetting the corporate image and collecting the amounts for which the staff is at fault. In the case of VNMO 37/50 they have threatened the member who is not well educated and collected Rs. 12000/- vide receipt no 119858 dt. 06.04.2009 for a meagre amount of Rs.658/- the penalty amount levied and not communicated during chit period. In order to avoid the litigation the member has paid and we do not know how much amount was accounted in the books of accounts.Imagine if the member files a suit against the company for collecting such a huge sum for a meagre amount and go to the press. This will lead to slowly loosing customer base and I am amazed how the top management is allowing or encouraging this type of cheating at the cost of future business. Please remember that you are loosing the reputation with guarantors and other their known friends and relatives if a suit is filed for Rs.658/-. It is better in such cases of small amounts to send a copy of statement to all guarantors and ask them to arrange for payment. I advise the Management to give punishment to the Branch Manager and the lady staff concerned. Let me see how sincere the management is in dealing this issue.
when openend the chit a/c some 3 years ago, i was told that some one will come home and collect the chit subsrcription. but this never happened. i receive chit payment notice by post invariably late. as such i was forced to visit their office to find the amount and make payment. with the kind of trafic and lack of parking near their office i find this to be an ordeal. as such i resorted to find the subscription amount by phone and post a crossed cheque. sometimes the cheque is encashed in less than a week and some times they take nearly a month. the latest notice dt. nil was received on 24/10/09 for payment due on 10/10/09 since i found the amount on phone and posted the cheque dt. 6/10/09 the same day, i was feeling that there will be no dely. but to my surprise the cheque was not encashed even on 28/10/09. when queried on phone i was told that the cheque was not received, it is very convenient. i gave the cheque no. and asked them to write to me that they have not received, so that i can post another cheque. i hope they will respond without claming penalty for late payment. in this situation i am forced to demand that they send their person to collect the cheque from my residence.
Yes, Pl. don't believe Shriram, they are not sedning bills properly and I had to give the payments once in a five months after completing 30 months they asked me to close the chit as it was removed already as not remitting payments properly. without reeiving payment how one can pay . it's not chit compnay it's cheating company.
I am also one of the person cheated by Sri Ram Chits, Thoothukudi Branch, Tamilnadu. Yesterday (16.2.2010) i went to bid the money for my urgent need. But the manager and the agents syndicated with each other and conducted a dummy bidding. After that i argue with them for that cheating they were spoke very arrogant. One of the agent challenged me, no one bid the money without the help of agents. The agents are bid the money with the help of the manager for their clients in commission basis. Some of my friends were also experienced that this chit company is running by agents only. The manager and the administration also supported the agents not the clients.
Dear Ramanjaneyulu here i also faced the same problrm
