Misleading ads

request consumer affiars to ban such ads. 1000 off it says on an order. Most people go sign up. In fine print it says 1000 off across 10 orders so only 100 per order. They could have very well written 10000 Rs off too.

Ban such ads and companies if they are repeat violators. Bad business practice to cheat consumer. more

Do we already have a government agency who can take complaints from the public by all modes: paper, phone (voice call & SMS), and online on inappropriate advertisements? This agency must also reply back to the complainant the actions taken and punishment given.
If not, it is necessary to create such agencies in each city. more  
Even the Big Sale event is also a kind of Loot, MRP 4000 and discount 80% , so question is who verify the MRP that is the product justify the MRP.
Really the cost of that product after discount is much less. Stop making fool of us !!! more  
This is a fact or the reality of the life that where ever the greedy and avaricious people live,the cunning and shrewd people rule upon them and they need not to struggle for their lively hood.The 'Ads"are full of tricks.One has to think calmly.Again we must realize that the seller is not going to pay a single penny from his pocket even he may announce 95%discount. more  
We should make law for advertisement "All advertisement font must be of same size except title of advertisement. Why small font for terms and conditions?. It must have big font than other contents . more  
Amitesh Tyagi : It is not Bheek like Bhekari. Discount offers are all over world so it is not like what you are thinking. Companies give discount to attract people/customers and people take discount for cost cutting. It is not at all Bheek. So kindly request to you "Think" before posting. more
