Keys by mahindra are like,as if they were making them to be sold as toys by a roadside balloon seller
Quality seems to have gone down.
two days ago i had gone to check out Bolero VLX and Pathetic would be a small word for its key,my 10 year old Bolero's key and ignition switch feel better.

Thats right GTO.
We need not follow up with individual parts maker for our issues. In this case, I guess the key might be the culprit! sometimes, we also tend to pull the keys out at an odd angle and if the key is defective can break off!(like in old Bajaj Chetaks!!)

Nokia announces Product Advisory for BL-5C Battery manufactured by Matsushita - TechShout
Nokia Offers Free BL-5C Battery Replacement for Overheating
Why didn't Nokia find these quality defects before it reached its customers? simply because the supplier nowadays are "self certified" this means they declare the products offered by them are complying to all the prescribed parameters. Now regarding the key part, i hope it will be replaced by the dealer under warranty. The part once replaced under warranty is jointly examined by the OEM with the supplier. Now how far these investigation succeed is a point of concern. I hope you understand.
P.S. This is my unbiased opinion, what do you say?

The key was finally changed yesterday. The dealer sent someone home with the new key where the column was fitted and the vehicle had to be driven back to change the remaining locks.

I reiterate that, I as a customer, am paying the manufacturer / assembler. Its not my business to worry about who the vendors are. I have faith in the brand, like the car and make the downpayment. If the car falls apart, I could care less about the vendors. I WILL point a finger to the manufacturer, hold him fully responsible, never return as a customer and make sure to spread the word. Even the courts agree with me and hold the manufacturer singularly responsible. Who loses the most? The manufacturer first, then the vendor. I think its in the manufacturer's best interests to choose the right vendors, and ensure the right standards in part quality. Quality standards - in design, production, procurement, installation etc. - is what make or break a brand.
