[Resolved]  Vishal Retail Ltd(102418) / INALSA Emergency Light-Sunny — Disgusting Service from Indiatimes Shopping and Bad Sellers.

I have purchased 5 Items from Indiatimes shopping online portal - and I never had any complaints about 4 (four) items I received. Even I have received a big product like Bionaire Tower fan - it was big enough to get damaged.
I bought another Emergency light from e-Commerce India - that was also not at all damaged...
I bought a very damageable product - Laptop cooling pad - and I received in very good condition,
I bought a Utility trolley - it was also not at all damaged -
But there is a Cheating company "Vishal Retail Ltd(102418)" - who is bothering me a lot and cheating with me - and the problem is Indiatimes Shopping is not at all taking a positive role in solving the problem. That Cheating company "Vishal" sent me a completely Damaged Product and after talking and writing a lot they changed that - and when next time time I opened the pack - I found the same damaged product they sent, and above all that company is claiming that they have sent me a good product this time.
I have asked Icare to blacklist this company immediately and take necessary action - but it seems they are not at all ready to take any responsibility.
Now I have found all the relevant Ministry Officers mail id - and I am going to sent a mail with all mail attachments to them complaining against Indiatimes shopping and that Cheating Company "Vishal".
Here is a part of our mail conversation with Icare and "Vishal"
I want to ask everybody to stop shopping from Indiatimes Shopping immediately - otherwise they are also gonna be cheated and disturbed a lot in future.

Here is the mail list :

Whats your next step?

Why you guys are not saying anything?

Why you have this kind of Cheat companies listed in your Web page?

Why you don't take any responsibilities after selling an item?

The One and Only answer may be that - you are the same kind of cheating organisation.

Yet another lie.

I found the same damages - and the same gum patches - where a sticker was fixed
The same transparent packet - with same opening.and all the same marks...

What do you think - we, the buyers are enough to not understand your cheap cover ups????!!!

It is completely clear - that you have sent the same damaged product once again.

Yes - one thing is new - that is the packaging.

I am not sending back that product any more - it will help me to produce the evidence before Any Government official from Consumer Grievance Cell.

I have purchased 5 Items from Indiatimes shopping online portal - and I never had any complaints about other 4 (four) items I received. Even I have received a big product like Bionaire Tower fan - it was big enough to get damaged.
I bought another Emergency light from e-Commerce India - that was also not at all damaged...
I bought a very damageable product - Laptop cooling pad - and I received in very good condition,
I bought a Utility trolley - it was also not at all damaged -

All the problems is with a cheat company like you - and I strongly ask Icare to blacklist you immediately.

Dear Sir,

We have dispatched you the New Piece and this time special care was taken, that it is not damaged in transit but we are very sorry to hear that again you have received it broken.
You can get your money refunded and kindly send it back as we have to claim it from the logistics company.
Its just a case of mishandling by logistics company.

Dear Icare Official,
I have received the product yesterday.
And I was quite surprised that the same broken item has sent to me in a new pack from Vishal Retail.
What a cheating company - my god.
And these company should be punished.
You should have been black-list this company long back.
As I believe this cheat organisation must has done this kind of cheating previously too.
And they may not faced a guy like me before - and they and you guys thought I may give up sometime in between.
But you should know - everybody is not same - and I will going to end this cheating business of yours and Vishal.
I am going to lodge a complain in Indian Govt. Customer Grievance Cell (http://pgportal.gov.in/)
And I am also sending mail to :
Ministry of small Scale Industries : Shri K.S.Ludu, Additional Development Commissioner
Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution : Smt Rinchen Tempo, Joint Secretary
Ministry of Company Affair : Shri Jitesh Khosla, Joint Secretary,
Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises : Shri S.S. Negi, Director(PG), Public Interprise Bhawan,
Ministry of Law & Justice : Shri R. Ragupathi, Joint Secretary & Legal Adviser,
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions : Smt. Shyamalima Banerjee, Director (PG), DAR&PG, Sardar Patel Bhawan
and to few others... you just don't know how far I can go with this kind of cheating.
And its a deliberate cheating - and I will go as far as possible to punish the cheater.
I no longer need this item, and I am not returning this item - as I am really tired with mails and return mails, but am keeping the broken item for further investigations if done by India Govt. officials.
Have a great day.

Dear Mr Amit,
I have tried to talk to you many times with the numbers provided by Indiatimes Shopping -
But it seems one of the numbers - no more exists
One of the number is the Fax number
the other two numbers never attained - except only once - and then I was told that your customer care cell would call me the next day - but that "next day" never arrived...
I bought 5 items from Indiatimesshopping at a time - all the other four items reached me safe and in good condition.
But Order number[protected], Sub Order number 2144712, Item number 1926660, Item title "INALSA Emergency Light-Sunny" - reached me in completely broken condition - and it seems that it is sent like this - because all the seals inside are broken, the main plastic cover inside, is tored off, one light is not working, the battery cover is broken and it remains open thus... and so on - the overview is, you tried to send me a junk item that was lying in your godown or backyard.
I asked Indiatimes shopping to black-list a company like yours, to prevent others from this kind of suffering and trouble.
I regreat to say you your company is the worst I have ever seen - I have made many online shopping from different companies - rediff-shopping, e-bay, baazee etc... but never experienced this kind of things ever.

Hi, I regret to say that I am quite upset with one of the item I ordered.
The Order detail is as follows: Order No. :
[protected] Sub Order No.: 2144712
Merchant Name and Number : Vishal Retail Ltd(102418)
Item Number / Product Number: 1926660
Item SKU No: INALSA_Emergency_LightSunny
Item Title: INALSA Emergency Light-Sunny
Price: 1148 (with shipping charges)
I received that Item yesterday through "Overnight Express" - and what I think it is not only their fault - as it is quite clear that a previously damaged product is sent to me by the seller.
Many parts are broken, one bulb is not working, all the seals are broken or torn, some switch are not working, the main polythene pack that covering the product inside the box is torn - and the product is completely damaged. The seller should be black listed immediately.
I know I have nothing to do if you do not replace this immediately, but what I can do is I can tell everybody I know by person or by mail or by phone and I will circulate this news to everybody that you are supporting some third graded seller and I will ask everybody not to buy ANYTHING from Indiatimes shopping.
Another thing is, you have given me a mail saying that another order, no.[protected], sub no. 2144710 is already shipped but I have not received that yet. And another order (sub order 2144709) you have not shipped yet. You should not maintain any link with this third graded seller “Vishal Retail Ltd.†anymore to avoid this kind of feedback from other buyer. Otherwise you will lose all your prospective buyers. Take action immediately. Or I am going to circulate this everywhere. I am completely disappointed.

INDIATIMES SHOPPING / VISHAL RETAIL LIMITED — Cheating on Customers

This is to inform you about the 2 Companies, namely : INDIATIMES SHOPPING & VISHAL RETAIL LIMITED.
I had placed an order on Indiatimes Shopping for a SONY VAIO LAPTOP, Model No.- VPCW216AG on the 26th of March 2010. As per their terms, the said order was to be delivered within 7 days.
After I had waited for 7 days, I did not receive the product and instead I received a call from Mr Shadan Ahmed of Vishal Retail Limited saying that the product is out of stock and they would be able to deliver the same on the 10th of April 2010. I agreed to the same.
On the 10th of April, I again received a call from Mr. Shadan Ahmed saying that the product is still not available in the market and hence Indiatimes will cancel the order.
After that, I called up Sony India Limited and confirmed with them that the product is available in the market.
On 12th of April, I called up Indiatimes. The person said that they cannot do anything regarding the same harassment I had to face as the supplier is not having the product and so they will cancel the order.
Later I called Mr. Shadan Ahmed of Vishal Retail Limited. He said that the price of the product has increased and henceforth they will refund me the amount and I have to rebook ot at the new price.
This is merely a case of CHEATING UPON CUSTOMER.
The product is still being displayed on the website of INDIATIMES and says that it is still available for buying at the same price as before.
If the product is not available in the market, why would these companies display and advertise the product? is it to harass the customers?
I request you to please take necessary action againgst the said companies if possible.
HI this is not the first case and just one company, this is with every online shoppy they dont have products with them and still the product available in the site's page. I was cheated by Indiaplaza.in I had ordered Seagate 1TB HDD from Indiaplaza.in on 17th March after 10 days when I searched and called Indiaplaza.in helpline they told me that product is not available and they will try to deliver within next 3 working days which I was agreed again I got surprised from them that they still dont have the product and they requested me to ordered alternate Hard Disk of Western Digital. Now the question is, is there any law to stop all this or who will be responsible to take such pain and take action again all these so called Online Shopping services which pretend to serve customers comfort but indeed they cheated them.
