Yesterday, I signed up for MyTVS Breakdown Service for my car. Cost me Rs. 999 for one year's membership. I bought the membership online via arthamoney.com (a Times of India website).

Apparently, if I don't call them for assistance this year, I will get a 20% discount next year.

When I was in Chennai, I used to get my dad's Indica serviced at MyTVS Velachery. Service was much better than the Concorde service located closeby (at that time) at Guindy. And their customer support centre was also good

Default Re: Mahindra FirstChoice Wheels with MyTVS launch 24x7 Roadside Assistance Programme

I think TVS ought to have better trained personnel or maybe relocate technicians from other sites in places such as Gurgaon, Noida and Ghaziabad where the locals aren't …you know that professional or civilised.
For the first time I had called up ICICI Lombard at 2 am in the night when the car halted and wouldn't start. They then transferred me to TVS. Guess they have outsourced the task to TVS Roadside Assist. The fellow took a while to wake up a local 'technician'. I explained the situation which the TVS employee on the phone understood well. But the 'technician' was a Ghaziabad goon who asked 'kya problem ho ra hai'? I had already told him that the vehicle didn't start and if I know the intricate details of what caused it, I wouldn't be calling him up. He was clearly annoyed for having been woken up at night. Again, if working at night is a problem to him, he shouldn't have signed up for the help and such kind of assistance is only required at odd hours. Had it been daytime, I could have just hired an autorickshaw to bring a local mechanic over to come and inspect or maybe jumpstart it. He then said that it would take him 40 minutes to reach the spot. Though with that kind of traffic, it shouldn't have taken him even 5 mins from where he was at.
Meanwhile a few truckers then stopped when I signalled for help and helped me jump start the vehicle and I managed to reach home. The whole ordeal from the point of ICICI Lombard typing up a trouble ticket to TVS calling me up, assigning someone to do the task and then that person unwillingly arriving at the location – all of this took a good 2 hours. I then received a call from the fellow who said he couldn't find me where I said I was. I told him I returned back home and then I spoke to the TVS guy who was on conference that I didn't like the attitude that this fellow showed and hence didn't see the reason to be waiting for him.
