Infrequent circulation by The Hindu Vendor in Whitefield

Hello,
My subscription number#7760513978, I had taken a yearly subscription for The Hindu through RRE Name Shekhar Reddy (code#CD031007) with vendor Kader, last year on Oct. 2013.
The issue the vendor hardly circulate it in a proper way, either he doest bother to keep the paper on stated place or sometimes he dont even place the papaer( mostly on sature/sundays).

Like today I did n't recived any news paper for 1st Feb. The thing is we have complaint to Mr Reddy (the RRE#CD031007) multiple times about the vendor misbehavior, but he never takes any action on it.

Now a days due to expansion of easily accessible internate & television media very few actually go for the new papers concept and whoever do some of them face a problem like me. Its very unfortunate that due to all the establishment Hindu is loosing its name & fame, and being a outsider in Karnataka state I really feel measable when I see theses happing and dont find anyone actually take any steps against it.

If something can be done would be a great, if possible kindly change the vendor for my subscription (#7760513978).

Best Regards,

Agent not dispatching The Hindu newspaper regularly

The non-delivery of The Hindu newspaper on a regular basis is the menace that we are facing in the Koramangala area in Bangalore. The delivery is very much erratic and there is a sense of unreliability and untrustworthiness surrounding it. Sometimes the newspaper is not delivered even for a week. Only if we ask the person will he start delivering newspaper again. This is the second time in the last 2 months that the newspaper has not been delivered for 7 days continuously.
Some of the burning questions are as follows:
1. Has The Hindu taken any measures to hold accountability to the subscribers who have paid the amount in advance, when the agent in question reneges on his job of regular dispatch of the newspaper? This can become a menace to this reputed institution.

2. When the other national dailies make it a point to resolve these pain points of the subscribers in a bid to widen their subscription base, why is The Hindu not proactive in its efforts?

3. Can it be that the agent is selling it in retail so that he can make additional money, without delivering the newspaper to the subscriber even though the subscription amount has been fully paid in advance?

4. Is it possible to make deliveries through another agent in the same area? The area is Third Main, Bharathi Layout, Koramangala, Bangalore.
The lingering concern is whether this issue will persist afterwards also. Hope The Hindu authorities look into this problem so that it does not mar the reputation of this national daily (if can we call it a daily).

I tried to reach the contact person 970 101 0995 after 1 week of non delivery

He told it will be resolved soon and asked me to contact thursday , I contacted him on friday. he mentioned from saturday we will get news paper.

it is unfortunate. he is not lifting the cals from that day. I waited for 4 days and writing this email

we are not receiving the paper.

without feasibility of dispatch why annual subscription was taken ?

i got a sms for confirmation of subscription to contact 0806 700 8193 this number for complaints this is also no response.

Subscription number: 503811

I am subscribing for Hindu and Business Line for the last 10 years.

Despite my repeated request/complaint with the agent as well as Hindu office at Madurai, till date the issue is not resolved.I kindly request to take further actions in this regard to either continue the supply or refund the payment.
I never expected this sort of response from a big institution like yours.

Non reciept of 'The Hindu' subscrption gift

My complaint is similar to many of the complaints above.

Paid my cheque for Rs. 333/- (12 months subscription)
on 11-Sept-2013
Vendor code ==> CT 03 1896
RRE code ==> CD03 1112
Staying ==> Thindlu, Kodegehalli

The gift that was promised has not been delivered yet. the rep (9008768755) who sold the subscription NEVER receives the call. Looks like the no. is taken ONLY to cheat people and never to answer calls.

People please be careful with
people who come selling the subscription
if you want to subscribe for the same, wait till the gifts are handed out for you. hand over the cheque ONLY once the subscription starts

For me it seems like 'The Hindu' is CHEATING people by appointing false and CHEAP vendors. The best news paper has become the WORST news papers just by their acts.

non receipt of gift

On 09.0813, one Mr Naveen Kumar said to be RRE of The Hindu (RRE Code CD031095)called at us and canvassed for subscription for The Hindu under new scheme. Salient features of the scheme are
a) Rs333/- for 12 months subscription,
b) new improved layout,
c) improved language and d a gift of a travel bag.
I was a regular to Hindu since childhood and discontinued it in 2002 because of the drab language and beaten layout. Now I evinced interest and filled the form (order cum receipt No B g 035368 ) and gave my cheque for Rs 333/-. The above said RRE informed me that though the order form says receipt of gift it shall be delivered only the next day and the delivery of paper will start on 166.08.13 as per policy. next day I did not receive the gift nor any information. On 16th I didn’t receive the paper either. on 17th I found the paper at my door and again on 18th no paper was delivered. Irked I contacted the toll free no and the lady there informed me the PAPER WILL BE DELIVERED FROM 19TH. It did start from 19th and we received a call from the Hindu to get confirmation to the effect and promised that gift will be delivered to us in two days time.

Till now I have not received the gift nor your office contacted me.

The whole thing look a gimmick now as now the toll free no also has gone off and the RRE clearly cuts off my call
Now hereby I request you to stop supply of paper also. People believe media and you profess high standard of ethics and the way you have resorted to augment circulation by false promises pains. pl do not worry about refund of money as I understands your struggle to improve the circulation I am not interested in paltry money or gift but I am definitely keen to amplify deceit to the world in all possible forum through every possible source of communication

supply of news paper daily

In the recent past, the hindu facilitated readers to get the newspapaer for 6 months at a special price. I am one of the subscribers. In june2013 Ist week I shifted my accomodation into new premises which fact was informed to the distributor as also many times and complained by local phone regarding irregular supply of paper by paper-boy and throwing the paper on ground instead of giving at 2nd floor. He is supplying the paper at his convience and on selected days therebt I am not receiving the paper regularly in spite of my best efforts. so, I request to please cause necessary action and see that I receive the news paper regularly in time.

need The Hindu

Dear Sir,
We have shifted from Mumbai last month, when we were looking for the newspaper agent, we were shocked to hear that they were not ready to deliver as the boys don't want to come inside that lane . But they give newspaper for few houses till the main-road, our house is bit inside almost 1 min drive from main road.
And for your kind information My husband is columnist in HINDU BUSINESS LINE for the past 12 years.
Kindly do the needful for the people who wants to read your paper.

The Hindu News paper complain

The national daily - The Hindu, Visakhapatnam has been joining hands with its Agents in hampering its business by not extending its special subscription rates to its readers. As a result some of its old subscribers stopped taking delivery and went for other national dailies who offer lucrative subscription rates annualy/half yearly. One such agent is located in Gajuwaka, Visakhapatnam-530026 who denied delivery of the paper at sp subscription in a PSU - BHPV Township where all other national daily has been giving at Sp. subscripton rates other than The Hindu. The Marketing wing may take sp interest in this connection and if neccessary appoint able eligible Agents which goes to increase business and earn good name and fame. For immediate corrective measures pl.

PAPER NOT COMING

Same is the case with me. Reader subscription no 4011357. Paper was supposed to be circulated from 1st of Oct. But till today (30-Oct-2010) only 2 times it was delivered to us. I repeatedly called the agent Ismail. They say that there is a problem with the delivery boy in this area (Baghameer, Kukatpally) hence the issues. What ever it is its bad the The Hindu is not looking into such issues that are happening repeatedly.
