Default First woman photojournalist to cancel 'Nano' booking EDIT : She's taken delivery

fullstory

India's first woman photojournalist Homi Vyarawalla, who was offered a 'Nano' on priority basis, has decided to cancel her booking for the small car after it was not delivered on time.

"I have written to the Tata Motors to cancel my booking," the 96-year-old woman told PTI.

Vyarawalla was upset to learn that the company has already delivered 16 cars in the city yesterday and her name did not figure in this list.

"I had booked this car after the company wrote to me on April 9, and had deposited an amount of Rs 95,000 for its registration in my name after they assured the delivery within two months," she said.

The ace photographer had threatened to cancel the booking if the car is not delivered to her within a week.

"I do not know how long I will live..

She deserved to be one of the first to be delivered a Nano by Tata's
Hope Tata can deliver her Nano within one week.

Maybe due to the fact that when she got the FIAT they were not partners with TATA

Karl should return the car to her

Just kidding...

Read this in today's local daily. Obviously a few deliveries were made by TATA for Nano and Homi Vyarawalla was not delivered the car. Obviously frustration will set in as she is old and wanted the Nano.

Tata has to understand the sentiments too considering the splash they have made with this car.
A negative point to TATA for this.
