I hope this will act as a deterrent in other states also and this menace of fleecing the customers by the dealer and companies turning a blind eye to this loot will come to an end.
Many of the dealerships are going to be owned by people with political pull and anyway, it will end up being challenged in the courts for sure, regardless of its legality. Let us see how this drastic measure (suspension of trade license) works to curb this practice.

The trade licence is issued by the Commercial Taxes Department and not by the MVD.The MVD can however recommend Commercial Taxes Department to suspend trade licence of the erring MV Dealers.

More to the point MVD can refuse to accept registrations through the dealership or make owners come personally if they buy from that dealer.

Dear Friends,

Our lawyer, after peer review has decided to file a petition before National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission,Delhi (National Consumer Forum) since this menace is spread all across India.

Any Judgement passed by this forum is applicable for the entire country and not limited to a particular state.

The draft of the petition will be ready by next Saturday and we aim to file the same by 15th February 2016.

I will keep you all updated on the developments.

Waseem.....

Waseem you are a beacon of hope for the rest of the country.
We wish you all the best and our good wishes are with you in this fight against illegal charges and extortion.
We all need to do our bit and refuse to pay these illegal charges to send a message that the customer can't be taken for a ride any more.

Bought New Safari Storme 400nm without Handling charge which was 7.5K.

Mailed the Delhi courts judgement to Dealer & they canceled the Handling charge.

We need to educate our Family & Friends on this ''Organised Racket'' so that they do not fall prey while buying vehicles.

Hey guys,

When I had gone to a Mahindra showroom to enquire and TD about the XUV 5OO W10, I was handed the price list that had Rs 7000 as handling charges.

Is there anyway to get this off the price in the OTR?

Yes.Send them (dealer) an email with the newspaper articles of SC observations made by Justice Jain.(After u get the required discounts).

If they don't budge,send an email to the customer care with all the details and it should be sorted out.

Last option is to tweet Anand Mahindra and everything will be taken care.

Waseem.

Done. @Silverwood, very recently, Kerala RTOs had done a massive crackdown stating this is illegal and had suspended the license of the dealerships involved. You probably could use that piece of info to build your case / petition?

Done.

Mods - maybe this petition should go on the home page so that it garners a large number of votes.
