Chingu - Ladakh Handloom and Khaadi Udyog Emporium, Shimla — Fraud in selling Chingu Blankets/Shawls
I wish to inform you about the fraud selling of Chingu shawls and blankets in Shimla (near Halipad). This shop, where our taxi driver recommended us to go, convinced us on the story that government has banned chingu killing and has suggested an alternate way to get its wool by taking it from the neck of a newly born chingu goat which then requires 4-5 years to mature.
For this time chingu blankets are given on rent(not sold), to be returned after 4-5 years with 75% refund. This was complemented with discounts and 6 free gifts. The proposition costed us Rs 32,500 and agreements were signed for two chingu's as per the offer to receive on return - 75% of original price (48000) plus the current price for second (32500). Also, a connection was shown with the Khadi udyog in Lucknow (my home address) where we were supposed to return the chingu blankets after 5 years.
We made an advance payment of Rs. 5000.
When we returned to Lucknow and tried checking with the Khadi Udyog, they told us that this concept is a complete fraud. We called the shop and told them that the lucknow khadi udyog mananger wants to talk to them, they immediately hung up. I tried repeatedly on the multiple numbers provided and got the same result.
