Dear Sirs

In line with the below email, please be informed that facts against our complaint No.7069693 dated 2nd Sep 2011.

3. The issue has been addressed to all level in IFB customer service portfolio.

3.a - Customer Care cell(044-39004321)

3.b - Our Area Territory Head, Mr.Nandha Gopal (Mobile No - 0 9382128400);

3.e - An Email written to customerservice@ifbglobal.com (below email).

Also please note, since the existing compliant has been closed by your authorized service agents, another fresh complaint has been taken by your customer care cell(044-39004321) against the wrong closure of customer complaints. The compliant No.7317921 Dated 4th Oct 2011.

Please note We as a customer has to get regular and proper after sales service, which is your duty to meet the consumer rights. But in addition to proper service, your agents are not responding to us in time and even no transparency in escalating the issues to their high level. Also when it is been taken up with higher officials, there is no call back to customers even from customer care centre or the higher official (to whom the complaint was escalated) to know the real status of complaint being addressed.

In this scenario we as a customer have been taken to ride by your service agents, mislead to wrong information, false commitments, We were pushed to all kinds of high level mental pressure and physical difficulties to meet our daily needs with the IFB washing Machine. Moreover, our family people (My Mother) where pushed to severe physical difficulty even under their poor healthy conditions, which has affected here health condition severely. Also we have spend large amount of mobile calls which is unnecessary expense to us. These are the few difficulties to address and there are lots more such complaints prevail with us due to improper service providing of your authorized agent, which shall be in detail while addressing through legal note.

please note as per our below email, we are forced take legal action against the above ill treatments by your authorized service group.

This is for your information please.

Thanks and Regards

Dear Sir

Ref: Complaint No;-7069693
Product/Model No:- Digital 7KG DIRECT DRIVE & SR No. KW10YB62820384

This is to bring to your kind notice that IFB customer service in our locality (Thanjore, Tamilnadu) is totally absent/not active as required. Please note the complaint No:- 7069693 registered through 044-39004321, which is almost a month due to address the machine fault. Also note the machine was bought very recently on 28th Jan 2011and with this short span of time from purchase kindly look at your service capability which in sorry/worst position. We as customer doesn't want to know your efforts, also do advice your people not to count their efforts rather please produce the result/output as required.

The same is also brought to notice of your customer complaint cell several times through Phone No. 044-39004321 but no results are sighted.

This kind of worst customer service will spoil the brand image of IFB in rural market. Please understand the rural market is strong in its word of mouth marketing technique and this behavior will certainly bring down the market share.

Hence request you to consider this a personnel note to know the reality in addressing the customer grievance by your authorized dealers/franchisee and ensure corrective action is taken to safe guard the brand image "IFB" and do also address our complaint very soon.

If still the action is not taken, sorry but with no option we are forced to take legal proceedings against non fulfillment of consumer rights.

I Strongly demand after sales service has to be at least to meet the basic criteria and looking at this detailed scenario of complaint, worst service manner is practiced and it has to be highly taken to legal proceedings on a/c of consumer rights complaint.
