Default Starter motor problem in Palio MJD

My Palio MJD has completed 15 months and everything was fine but last weekend after a stall in the traffic it refused to start and had to be push started. When I turn on the ignition key it gave a bad screeching sound as compared to a good cranking sound.

I took it today to Green tracks and they say the starter motor seems to have gotten a fault. They are trying to find out if its under warranty or not.
I am surprised how such a serious problem could come in a relatively new car with only 15K on the odo

Before to this it didnt give any indication except that the car failed to start sometimes the first time.

Do any of you fiat owners know what the warranty period for the starter motor is? Have any come across such problems?

Hmm..looks like none of the Palio owners here have faced this issue.
