Times Of India - price of paper

14 Reviews
1. I am securing news paper through a local service provider in Banjara hills, Road no4 area, HYDERABAD
2. I take Times of India and Economic times - a combi.
3. I notice that Price quoted on ET that states that cost of the paper is Rs 4 ( along with times of india). This rate is superscribed on the paper i get (which states that this price is applicable for home delivery in HYDERABAD along with times of india)
4. The paper distributor collect Rs 210 monthly for both papers as against Rs 120 per month that is supposed to be charged as per the Economic times top portion states.
5. The distributor says he is paying at Rs 210 to TIMES OF INDIA.
6. I have been paying for this paper for last 4 years at this exhorbitant rate.

This is nothing but a cheating not befitting to the stature of any NEWS PAPER more so for a prestigious publication office like TIMES OF INDIA Group.

Rate of TOI - newspaper

Sir i am a regular reader of TOI.
You r increasing the price of TOI beyond Rs 2.50.
Since i am a student it will effect my monthly budjet.
Please bring the price of TOI at Rs 2 as it is the single paper being sold in very large no. in India.
Plz. take attention to my suggestion.

Not all supliments of Times Of India are provided by local Retailers - Times Of India

My complaint is that local retailer present in khambhat District Anand (Gujarat) are not dispatching complete papers. Like on sundays they are not giving Times Life & on wednusdays no Ascent.
When asked they are saying that this supliments are not for interior towns.
We are residents of Anna Nagar East in Chennai. Our complaint is that the local vendor is delivering only the main paper and the Chennai Times. No other supplements like Ascent and Property are delivered. Even the supplement of the daily special feature(being included since 06.04.09) to celebrate the first anniversary of the papper has not been received by us at all, this despite the fact that I have contacted your local no. thrice. Everytime I am told that immediate action will be taken but the paper is again delivered same way as the previous day. Seems like the Times of India office has absolutely no control over the local vendors. Today when I checked up the same paper with another vendor in our area, I found it was double of what is being delivered to us. Will appreciate if my complaint is attended immidiately. Our order no. is 2001213 in the name of K.S.Mehta.

This practice is followed by your all venders. Inspite of complaint on phone regarding thritning to stop news paper by the vender nothing is done.It shows they are internally protected by the paper publishing authority.

I have been facing the same problem for the last 2 years. The newspaper man (Ram vishal mishra, newspaper & magazine suppliers, ankit vihar 1, chotpur colony, sector-63, noida, mobile no 9871629499) charges anything between 30-35rs extra/month to the cost of TOI. On complaining about the same he has stopped the delivery of the newspaper all together. this is goondaism...and TOI is doing nothing to stop this harassment.

I a, shocked today wen the vendor came to collect march subscription. Every Month I pay 150 Rs for the same and this month he has asked for 165 citing increase in the newspaper price.
He says Sunday edition was for Rs 15 which is neverheard off

I want to have the correct price

I am paying Rs 180/- per month for Times of India irrespective of whether it is month with 30 days or 31 days with 8/9/10 saturdays and sundays. Whereas the price mentioned in front of the daily newspaper says Rs 4.50 on all weekdays and Rs 5 on Saturday and Sunday. Depending on days in a given month and number of Saturdays and Sundays in the month, the price should be at the least should be Rs 139/- to a maximum of Rs 144.50. This is not acceptable. I live in Noida Sec- 40 and I am being duped by Times of India, its Distributor and Vendor for months now. I fail to understand how the price can be same every month at Rs 180/- per month. I hope someone will look into this. My Vendor name is Siya Ram Pal, RC-49/B, Anil Vihar, Khora Colony, Noida
