30-35% if you aren't watching closely.... Service technicians are always finding means and methods to make extra bucks..... Buyer beware is the only way where poverty is rampant!!
Its just not possible to get rid of employees or tweak company policies beyond a point! more  
Look of a spare does not indicate its condition. It has become a trend now-a-days to refer all individual grievances of similar nature to the Local Circle as if it is a grievance redressal organisation, which fails the very purpose of creation of the organisation to collectively review and suggest solution of various national issues under different heads. Instead, majority of the posts we receive every day pertain to personal matters alike of the present one.

In your matter, it is simple that in the event of being cheated by the supplier and his failure in honoring the terms and conditions of the sale and the given warranty, the affected is required to approach the legal agencies for justice. more  
Please issue a notice to the company and lodge complaint with consumer forum more  
Most of the cheaters have he back up support from politicians . This is the sad part of the life now.
Many traders stamp MRP on their own and every month you will find the price increase. Absolutely NO ACTION by Govt. more  
Yes, this new practice has been initiated by some service centers recently. It has no vaidity. Such cenres are cheating customers as hotels had been doing intially. I advise to write it to concerned authority and place the service center in trouble so that it can never cheat others. this will also work as a message for others to take a cautionary note. more
