I find in India that there is rampant cheating done by several business and the consumer looses his life savings during many instances and no one cares and it seems the Govt facilitates this.
I had a stock brokerage with kotak securities and they have been showing me wrong balances that I held when I sought clarification no one answered so one find day I wanted to close my account because their charges were absurd and were no in line with any of their competitors. So I asked what is the balance money I would get when I close my account they have clearly stated that I would get about Rs 15000 by reply mail. I wanted to clarify this clearly over 7 to 8 mails and they said that is what I would get at the end they gave me about Rs 780 and said that is it putting me into lot of trouble. When I said that I have been cheated they have shown me this statement
