"Points that need to be taken care of while dealing with Is it really EMI free?"

An article titled "Points that need to be taken care of while dealing with Is it really EMI free?" had appeared on this blog, the link of which is

The letter states "as per Rule 71 (ii) of the Delhi Motor Vehicles Rules, 1993 that 'No advertisement device, figure or writing shall be exhibited on any public service vehicles, same as may be permitted by the State Transport Department by general or specific order' . However, no advertisement can be permitted on private vehicles. The policy on commercial vehicles for advertisement is also under review by Transport Department, GNCT of Delhi."

EMI Free Car Pvt. Ltd. has not got any permission to display advertisement on the cars/ vehicles- Perspective buyers may be careful.

EMI Free Car Pvt. Ltd. has not got any permission to display advertisement on the cars/ vehicles- Revealed under RTI- Perspective buyers need to be careful.

An article titled "Points that need to be taken care of while dealing with Is it really EMI free?) has appeared on this blog, the link of which is 

As referred in point No. 4 of the article, I had submitted applications under RTI Act 2005 to Ministry of Transport and Transport Department of Govt. of NCT of Delhi. The basic information that I intended to seek was whether has taken any approval from the transport department to display advertisement on the cars/ vehicles as the display of the advertisement on the car is the basic prerequisite if at all there is a scheme of reimbursement of EMIs. I am quoting below the text of the RTI reply of Delhi Transport Department:

"No permission has been given to M/s. EMI Free Car Pvt. Ltd., by this branch."

Hence it is clear that the company has not taken any approval and hence there scheme of EMI free Car  if at all is existing is misleading and is likely to dupe the public. The perspective buyers may like to be very very careful while dealing with this company.

Do we really dreaming India to be world class country with Bullet Train in the network of Indian Railway system?

Do we really dreaming India to be world class country with Bullet Train in the network of Indian Railway system?

It seems to be a million dollar question.

Our Government popularly known as Modi Sarkar headed by Hon'ble Shri Narendra Damadordas Modi as Prime Minister is dedicating himself to make world class cities in India. I do not know whether it is a political dream or is an actual dedication.

I have a chance to visit New Delhi Railway Station (NDLS) on 10th July 2014 and wanted to reach platform No. 2 from Ajmeri Gate side by using escalator being unable to walk through staircase. There have been certain observation which I thought to write them over here:
1. The scanner checking for luggage: It was working. Two police men were sitting to monitor but seen gossiping. Surprised to note that the monitor through which scanning was being monitored was lying switched off. Tried to take snap but the policemen preferred to hide from the camera.

2. Escalators installed at Ajmeri gate side entry were seen not working. Barricades were kept just on the approach side. Tried to find out from two policemen and a staff. Was told that the escalators are not working since last more than six months. I recalled immediately that I had visited at least four times during last one year but the escalators were not seen as  working even at those time also. I thought at that time might have been switched off. But this time surprising part was the placing of barricades at the approach of escalators.  Barricading this time compelled me to think that these must have been now permanently closed. Snap of the escalators are attached with this post. All senior old aged people were seen climbing the staircase. 

3. It was very difficult to stand at platform No. 2 being smelling very heavy.

4. Our Prime Minister time and again have been pretending to be technology savy. But that seems to be only during the election 2014 in a bid to create the atmosphere for vote banking. Tweeted number of times the condition of New Delhi Rly Station to PM office, Indian Railways, Newspaper and electronic media like ABP News, Zee News, Aajtak and few important personalities like Anjana Om Kashyap and Dibang who recently covered Bullet Train story in China. Surprisingly they never reacted to the tweets. Why the media is so biased could not be understood. probably guessing that electronic media must have been made BJP spokes media without realising that spooning and buttering is dangerous for the development of the country. Criticism always improves upon quality.

Oasis Resource Management Pvt. Ltd.- Are you planning to avail their Immigration Consultancy?

Prevention is better than cure- Oasis Resource Management Pvt. Ltd

Oasis Resource Management Pvt. Ltd. is stated to be in the business of HR and Immigration Consultancy. Few of the perspective clients who wanted to avail their services sought the view as to whether it is adviseable to seek their consultancy services for which the company is charging heavy amount ranging from Rs. 1.5 lakhs onwards. The company is promising various services against the payment. 

While visiting the public domain, it has been observed that there are number of people who are complaining against their services but are not being provided any redressal. The nature of the complaint and modus-operandii of the company in getting the money from their perspective clients is almost of similar nature.

The author has sent them a mail seeking some information about the company at their email id listed on their web-site  . The telephone number of the company remain unresponsive and hence email was written. The content of the email mailed to them on 26th June 2014 are reproduced below:

"Dear Sir,

1. I would be grateful if you could provide the details of the complaint redressal Officials along with their email ids.  
2. Please provide me the details of the countries to whom you are registered as immigration/HR consultancy/recruitment agency.
3.I am also wondering if you could share the details of Directors and Promoters of the company as such details are not stated in your web-site.

I am quite confident you would have no hesitation in sharing the requisite details. 

With regards"
 It would be surprising to state that the company has not even preferred to response by sending such information. One person who happen to contact on mobile refused to share any of the information as sought above. He was requested to respond to the email by stating that no such information can be provided. The same was again refused.
The question arises as to why the company should not share the details of the customer grievance officials who could be contacted if the customer faces any problem/complaint. is it not the right of the perspective client to know before investing as to which are the countries to which they are approved immigration agencies. 
In view of above, anyone who wanted to avail the services of M/s. Oasis Resource Management Pvt Ltd. may like to take care of before deciding to pay the heavy consultancy fee. "Prevention is the best cure"

Illegal charging of VAT on discounted prices by brands/retailors

An article titled "Is "Ritu Wears" adapting to Ethical Business Practices? probably "No". appeared in this blog on 09/02/2014 and another article titled Why VAT being charged by Aditya Birla Nuvo on discounted MRP when MRP is inclusive of all taxes?. on 10/02/2014. This article pertains to the illegal charging of VAT by the many traders including Ritu Wears including Park Avenue, Aditya Birla etc. in a case where the traders are giving discount as %age of MRP. Since the MRP is always inclusive of VAT and no additional amount is chargeable, the discounted prices are also MRP and are inclusive of VAT. Any additional charging of VAT is not chargeable and it is felt that one of the VAT is being pocketed by the traders. In that scenario there is a possibility of tax evasion.

The issue was also brought to the notice of the Department of Consumer Affairs, Govt. of India. Department of Consumer Affairs, Govt. of India have requested State Controllers of Legal Metrology to take necessary action for the violations of Legal Metrology (Packaged Commodities) Rules 2011. A scanned copy of their letter No. WM-10(28)/2014 dtd. 23/06/2014 is posted here for wider awareness of the consumers. 

The consumers who are charged VAT extra on the discounted prices are requested to report the matter to their State Legal Metrology officials with a copy to the Trade and Taxes Department of your State.
