I planned to visit my native place on Holi (1st March, 2010) and asked Shankar Rao(a travel agent) on phone to book couple of 3rd AC train tickets in tatkal from Hyderabad to Delhi. He promised that heíd arrange the tickets either from Hyderabad or Mahabubnagar. Then he asked me to transfer 1500/- in advance. I transferred the amount (1500/-) in his account as I really need those tickets.
Next day around 8:30 AM, I called him and asked about the tickets. He said that the tickets were booked and heíd call me around 2:00 PM to tell me from where I have to collect the tickets. But I didnít get any call from him. So I called him around 4:00 PM then he told that heíd come near to my office around 5PM to hand over the tickets (It seems he use to book the train tickets from Dilshuk Nagar, Railway Station.). But again no calls from his side, so I tried his number again and again but his mobile was switched off till 9:00 PM. Then later he switched on his mobile but he was not receiving my calls till late night. I sent him lot of messages also but he didnít reply. Then next day early morning when I tried his number from other numbers, he received the call but as I asked about my tickets, he cut the call. I was unable to do anything because I don't know his address or his office.
So in this way, I lost my 1500/- as well as missed the chance of celebrating Holi with my family which is more important then 1500/-
So, I would like to lodge a complaint against Shankar Rao so that he will not be able to cheat anybody in future.
