    Call 044-24317979 and book your subscription. I don’t think they have an online registration form for subscription.

    Dear all,
    Whenever I contacted times for subscription ,No body responds(for the pat 2 months) in a proper way.I’m interested for a 6 months subscription,while they are forcing me to take the 1 yr offer.I don’t understand what is going on here at times-chennai.If it goes like this,it will be vey difficult for times to get the penetration in chennai and It will definitely dilute the brand value of times..Hope, after seeing this higher authorities will take some appropriate steps.

    It is hopeless service offeres by TOI. The advertisements read “Next change” – I feel it is better not to change. Without even starting the business the service is like this, I do not know what will happen later. Sincere suggestion do not go for this change, I have already SMSed 5 times on 58888 and calling the number 24317979 for past 10 days, but nobody is bothered to pick up.

I have already applied for the one year subscription when their reps. came and collected the money and gave away the coupens. But they said TOI office will call up to our contact no for getting the newspaper agent address from us for daily delivery by the same agent. So far nobody called up. My contact no. 9840707655 and res 22420231

    Worst response. I have given my details to them for subscription 20 days back. nobody contacted me. I called today asked abt status. They are saying subscription was over yesterday. I said already I have given the details. But no proper response. They can’t survive well in the world until they respond positively

    Dear Sir,
    I wanted to become your valid customer and reader Of your Times Of India-chennai Edition.For this, I have booked your News Paper thro’ phone 044-2431 7979. Thet took my call and registered on 30-3-2008 , informing me that they will send somebody from marketing dept to collect my annual subscription of Rs.299 and offered gift also. Till now, nobody from your office came and took my suscription.It is highly surprising that they could not make this eventhough, I am put up at T.Nagar–centre and nucleus of Chennai city.
    How can you make your chennai launch highly succssful ?This type of act will definitely spoil your reputation. May I request you, to set this problem?
    Thanking you.

    They have cheated me though. I signed up for TOI on behalf of my father and he has not received the paper for last two days. The flask is a dysfunctional metallic container. Thats all. Forget the gift. Even the paper is not being delivered yet. No one is answering the calls. I have placed a review comment on about this. Also have sent mails to them. No response.
    My order was placed on Feb 1st (order no: 2019326.). My father was a steadfast against changing from Deccan Chronicle to TOI. I convinced him to change as I subscribe to it at Mysore.
    So much for customer service.

    @those who have subscribed,

    Hi friends, those who have subscribed for TOI paper, have to go and talk to their local newspaper vendor and tell them to send TOI paper to you. and u have to give the coupon given by the TOI agency.

    thank u…


    April 16, 2008 at 2:46 am

    This is not at all toterlable.. Me too booked for 1 year subscription, and I haven’t got a single message or paper from the company. I feel really embrassed. Calling them 24317979 is hell.. u can even get a call to speak with Pepsi UMA.. but this is very difficult.

    I have already sent two mails and a reminder, still haven’t got any response. If this prevails for long.. Then they have to face the court for cheating the customers.

    Having been residents of New Delhi since 1954 to 1995, my parents were avide readers of Times of India. They missed the paper very much once they shifted to chennai. Times of India Chennai edition has been like a god given gift to them in their old age. We had subscribed for one year and we have started getting the paper since 15th April onwards. I would like to mention one important thing here. The Stainless Steel Vaccuum flask given with one year subscription is not of good quality. To our knowledge many have exchanged the flask fo the bag. Is it possible for us to exchange the flask for the bag at this stage. Please do reply at the given email address.

    It is a pity that I did not receive the paper even on 16.04.08, though I am a ” Founding Member “. Like any Public Office tone is responding over the phone. No reply is sent for the E Mails. The Field man who collected subscription is not accessible in his mobile phone. It is a pathetic situation. God help the hapless ” Founding Members “.

    My order No. is 1020646 and I have already subscribed for 6 Months. I have received the paper on April 14th & 15. The paper agent collected the coupon and went. From 16th Onwards, no supply. The complaint No. 24317979 is always busy, even at 7.30 in the morning. It was initially informed that the regular paperwalla would be adviced to drop the TOI also, but now a new fellow has approached. There appears to be a lot of confusion. I request you to kindly look into my complaint and do the needful.Your immediate action will be appreciated.

    Hi friends,
    Thanks for all your comments. I didn’t subscribe for times of india since i’m happy with Hindu. I’m also trying to help you all for getting the paper. I tried them calling to the number that i mentioned in this thread. But still i’m not getting anyone on line. FYI – This is not a blog owns to times of india. I sent an email to times of india about all your queries. Yet, no reply.

    Lets hope we’ll get resolved with this problem asap.

    @ To all those who haven’t received TOI:
    Disheartening to note such poor customer service from supposed to be such a reputed Newspaper introduced in Chennai …..
    None of the phone numbers given are operative and no response to the one I got from the Directory Enquiry also. Dialled to some extension No. and finally managed to get the Agent Number. There again, the Agent says my Order No. is not in the list – though I have subscribed for one year and got all the coupons. Haven’t got a single issue from 14th to-date. Hoping I may be getting it from tomorrow!!!

    Contact Number (The only one which seems to be working) : 24317904..
    Just call up this number and ask for your local area agent number.
    The Thiruvanmiyur agent contact number is 24902240.

    I have subscribed for Times of India for One Year on January itself and they assured me that they will deliver the paper from April 14th onwards…I really surprised when the paper boy pressed my calling bell on April 14th and delivered the paper. So, I thought that I will be getting the paper on daily basis from next day onwards.. But, I didn’t get the paper from very next day onwards…I am still searching/trying to reach the times of india , The telephonoe number which they gave us is always with engaged tone..

    I really feel irritated and now I feel why I subscribed for Times of India…it is a really a bad experience for me with times of india …

    The Circulation Manager,
    Times of India,

    I am a subscriber to The Times of India. My order number is 2016381. I am not getting the paper regularly. It could be because of a mistake in the address. Instead of Flat No.7, what is shown in the address is Flat No.3. For your convenience I am giving below my name and full address. Please correct the address in your records and arrange to deliver the newspaper regularly.

    I Ravindran
    K-27, Golden Windsor, Floor 03,
    Flat No.7,
    1st Avenue,
    Annanagar East
    Chennai-600 102.

    I wish to reiterate that my flat number is 7 and not 3 as shown in your records.

    I shall be grateful for prompt action from you.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I have purchased a Times of India subscription coupon [Order No – 2051269] on 27-Feb-2008 from Mr.P.Naga at DLF IT Park, Porur, Chennai, India.
    The Times Of India person promised me that I will get the news paper regularly from April 14th onwards, but till now I have got the news only for 5 days out of 15 days that also past one week I have not got a single news paper. Is this is the manner to service to the customer, this is my third complaint mail I am sending to you with lot of frustrations. I was trying to reach you on the contact no(044-24317979) which you have given but no one responds even if it is ringing, or the same contact no will remain engaged always. And I trust this may be my last mail to you, here I am requesting you if possible do deliver the news paper regularly to me or cancel my order and give me my money back. I hope you can understand a customer’s feelings.

    The whole pre paid subscription is a fraud and fiasco. The staff at their Nandanam Chamiers Rosd office are totally useless and thoroughly inefficient. Their staff like Sanjay and Lakshmanan from Circulation Dept made promises but when it comes to delivery of services they are zilch. What a useless and incompetent organisation this TOI- Shame on you guys Absolutely good for nothing. My Customer ID is 31591 and order no 1058770 I wonder if the senior management is awake or are in deep slumber. Terrible mess- Jyoti Ramaswmy

    Hi friends,

    I have taken the 6 months subscription from Times of India on January. My subscription no. is 1000342.
    But still i didn’t get any paper from them. I sent more than 15 mails and more than 10 times i called them. Always they will give the reply as within oneday they will solve. But i don’t know what is the meaning for one day according to Times of India Standards. They are testing my patience. Friends now you can judge the service of Times of India organisation. I paid Rs.170 and again i spent Rs.100 for mails and calls. Also i wasted my time for these thing. Really waste service.

    In Chennai it more or less turns out to be a farce. I made an enquiry over SMS and also over phone. I was contacted in 2-3 days and the Customer Care person took all the details. This was in mid Jun 2008. Now 1-1/2 months have passed and no sign of any one calling me. They told I would receive a coupon gift and then the paper will come thru my news agent. They also collected my news agent name.

    It seems that they have not even contacted this news agent even over phone.

    To my surprise they even now say that I never ever contacted them in the first place! Looks like they lost all data of selected customer (I mean prospective customers!)

    Please dont fall in the trap Afterall the TOI may only be doing an Advt excercise to promote awareness- nort really bothered to serve customers!.

    i ve registered my name with this number for an annula subscription it is 24317979.
    its been a week that none of the marketing executives ve turned up.
    this makes me wonder for a business to start up in a conservative chennai for whether it would survive long.
    hope they maintain a good marketing and sales network. so that i dont keep calling up TOI for me not receiving my paper after a month or so.
    hope TOI is jus not seeing the market response and its jus digging its own grave.

    i subscribed for 1 year plan. 2 month back i requested for address change. Till now I am not getting the news paper neither in the old address nor in new address. Every time when i call the customer care they will tell within 24 hr they will rectify. Nothing happened till now. So please don’t believe in 1 year subscription.

IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO SUPPLY THEN I WILL GIVE YOU A ALTERNATE ADDRESS TO SUPPLY IN CHENNAI. THIS IS MY LAST WARNING. IF IT IS NOT REPLIED I WILL PUT UP IN CONSUMER COURT

    MY ORDER NUMBER IS 1005743


    October 22, 2008 at 12:04 pm

    Hellow Sir,
    I had subscibed TOI by paying Rs.299/ for one year term starting from 20-08-2008. after supplying the paper for about a month , the paper boy was insisting for the subscription coupon which unfortunately is misplaced. I had requested the paper boy to bring the local agent (his boss) to discuss the issue. the local agent namely Mr.EZHUMALAI of Pallikaranai visited our home and asked us to give it in writting about the misplacement of coupon. Accordingly we gave it in writting the same and requested to continue the supply of news paper. We were supplied with news paper upto 17-10-2008 and stopped the same since then. When I asked the paper boy (who is a new boy now) today , he infromed me that “Mr.EZHUMALAI has asked him to stop the supply of newspaper to me, that is why he has not supplied the same from 17-10-2008”. I am unable to contact Mr.EZHUMALAI either in phone or in person. Kindly verify the facts of my subscription of your paper and order him to supply the news paper immediatley.

    the following are the subscription details:

    Address: PLOT No.41, A/A, RHYTHM RESIDENCY,
    4th Street, IIT Colony,
    Mobile No. 9444771943

    Local Agent (supplier) Name: Mr.EZHUMALAI, PALLIKARANAI,

    pl. do the needful immediately.

    yours truly,

    the paper boy used to give the papers regularly but never turned up to collet the coupons.
    by mistake i missed the coupons.
    the delivery boy turned up one fine day after 4 monmths and started demandning the coupons which i have already lost.
    he further added that i have to pay for the 4 months if i am not able to produce the coupons.
    is there any way to get back duplicate coupons.
    i dont remember my subscription number also.

    Can anyone give a solution to this. it would be a great help.

    We have subscribed for 6 months initially and then for 1 year. Now, 1 week back one person called me and asked me to subscribe. I agreed and paid Rs.300/-. He gave me the receipt alone but he did not give me the coupons to give to my newspaper supplier. He told me that the bar code on the receipt is sufficient. But when I showed it to the news paper supplier, he says he will not accept that and he needs the coupons. I again called that person and asked for the coupons but he says he discussed in the Times of India office and they asked me to change the vendor for us. Upon insisting, he gave us an old sheet which does not have the bar code. He has changed the date from 2007 to 2009 and gave us. When asked, he says the bar code was taken by the Times of India office. I am very sure that some people are cheating public in the name of Times of India. Our news paper supplier also confirmed the same. Please take action otherwise your name will be spoiled. His name is Mani and mobile number is : 9043443280. Thanks.

    I subscribed for Times of India Offer for One Year starting from April. The service is horribly bad – I received the newspaper for about 3 months – that too in a rather irregular manner.

    Since the last 2 months I have not received a single copy.Repeated phone calls / e-mails to the TOI office have resulted in fake assurances that I will begin to receive the newspaper again within 48 hours.

    I feel very irritated and wonder why I subscribed for this TOI offer…its been a very bad experience with Times of India …

    The Manager TOI,
    I subscribed for TOI for an year on 11-11-2009 and paid the fee though cheque, which has already been cashed by you. I am yet to see the TOI in my home. It is annoying, even after 4-5 phone calls to your office, to get false promises. TOI will fail if it misses committments. Now I feel I should have stuck with ‘The Hindu’ a truely professional and ethical org. Totally displeased with your irresponsible attitude.
