Does the car pull under braking?

I cannot think of any other reason for this, since the brake forces are distributed evenly between the front brakes, unless it has ABS. Also what is your car make? Does it have ABS?
My car does pull to left, while driving also while in braking, it has gone 2-3 time to correct that. Its a Hyundai i20 with ABS.

Same applies for tyre wear. Hence the importance of regular tyre rotation.

-----------

If the difference is MAJOR -- check your braking system as your LHS pistons might be jammed etc.
As per the technician LH side pad are good and it doesn't need any replacement. But RH need to be changed as it wont last till next service.

Seems like a brake balance issue to me. May be the ABS controller is pumping out more pressure to the RH side brake. Get the ABS unit and all it's allied accessories checked. My dad's ABS swift also had a similar problem and we found a dent in the hydraulic line going to the front LH wheel. Because of the dent the RH side was getting more braking force than the LH side and consequently the RH side would wear out quicker. So get the all the brake lines also checked.

But under normal braking condition ABS will not come to play is it? or i'm wrong?

if ABS not comes into play in normal condition how will be the brake distribution?

I guess we are taking about ABS and EBD here. EBD will ensure brake force distribution depending on many factors like load, road grip, car angle etc under normal driving. ABS will come into picture only when wheels are about to lock. So it might be the EBD which is not doing the job properly (chances should be less though). Just my views.
