I did not expect Team BHP to officially take up a protest. But if some of the visitors here, esp owners of Tata cars, do that on their own.. As a discussion forum ideas may be exchanged which the forum itself is not responsible for, unless they are outright illegal. Peaceful protest is quite legal and even encouraged in a democracy, and if the TV crew from say Aaj Tak happened to be around it would be very effective too. If only one knew where to begin.

There are cases of many web forums that have taken quite activist roles in the past. So I'm guessing its just the Team BHP policy to not be activist rather than a legal problem.

I agree with your comments. Peaceful protest is quite legal and members having TATA cars can do this...As long as team-bhp name is not there.

Hi Varun,

IF i recollect, this item pertains to a case that was decided a couple of months ago. if so, u could do the following:

If you or any of your friends knows a lawyer, ask them to look for this judgement in Supreme Court Cases or All India Reports or Cosumer Cases Digest.

Most lawyers get these journals and if the case is reported in hte press, the chances are that it would have been reported in the journal as well.

A copy of the entire case as reproduced int he Journal would be binding on the consumer courts since it is a SC judgement. They may not give any weightage to merely a newspaper clipping.
If you need any help, please get in touch with me on himanshu_goswami@xxxxxxxxxx or on xxxxxxxxxxx. I will be glad to be of any help.

I need all your good wishes. Hopefully, Truth shall pervail and I think everyone in the Autumobile industry would wake up and learn to value their customers. The fooling game has been going on too long.

So long.

Default Updates on my case.

The case has been posted to 10.04.2006 on my request, since my lawyers were busy with another case outside Bangalore.

I have consulted my Lawyers about putting up the proceedings of the case on this forum and the good news is that I can do so. I can even put up the information ( posters ) on the car, which I had put earlier during the Vahan Yatra period, because those were hard facts supported by documents.

So long....

Hi everyone,

The lawyers for Tatas did not appear today. I have filed a detailed Affidavit with all facts and supporting documents. The next date is 18.04.06 when the arguments will start. Should be interesting from now on.

On the workshop front, these guys have changed the Front power window regulator RH and the Speedometer assy. In the mean while the Power window regulator LH is broken.

In the court, the tatas have claimed that;

1. I have been spoiling these( power windows regulator ) because of
misuse and bad handling. Now
everyone knows that these are internal components that are operated
by a switch.
2. The Brake liners that were replaced at 4000 Kms were also due to
excessive braking and had to be replaced because they were worn out.
But surprisingly the front brake pads and the tyres are not worn out.
3. Even the Jack was damaged by me.
4. The Lumber support have a cable mechanism that break due to
enormous jerks caused by applying sudden brakes.
5. The clutch Plates and clutch parts were changed only because I had
arm twisted them into changing them.
6. Body tilt of 35mm is normal according to them.
7. They have denied that the rear springs were replaced even though this
has been mentioned in the Service Manual.
8. The Starter motor was not overhauled, while thier computer statement
shows this was done.
9. They have denied the No. of visits to the Workshop even when their
own Job cards show these visits.
10. The seatbelts that were changed 4 times never had any problems.
11. The power steering gearbox costing about 30K was never replaced,
all this when their statement says "Replaced Pwr Str gear Box provided
by RANE". Steering column assy. replaced twice also denied.
12. Total cost of replacements made so far to the tune of Rs. 1,50,000/-
was also denied by them.

So long....
