As everyone read the previous post on my special experience with The resort hotel, I have another problem now, it seems the ordeal wants to continue, all my life problems will never leave me or let me have one day of relief. Something or the other keeps hampering, Although I understand this is just a minor issue , people have much bigger problems to handle.
But when little little small small issues get together they seem to take a toil on you. Right so let me give you an update on the previous one ..
07th may 2014 :- I have now received the Cheque for the amount, I had paid . Wish I had blogged and written on Twitter 2 months ago , I could have saved myself the pain. Why could the people at the hotel not do it at the First time , is still a mystery. Thank you all for the concern in the last post. The cheque was couriered to my house in india. So I am very thankful to the people at the Resort.
BUT this has brought another headache now, My father had a account which was used for his salary etc, It was joint account with my Mom, After my Father passed away My Mom and My uncle went to the bank and got it changed to a new account or however they did, and Joint it with me. When they were filling the form , or who ever was filling the form wrote my name wrong, and since My Mom can’t read or write english , she was None the wiser, the Account got made .. in the name of BIKRAM SINGH MANN .. It is a joint account with my Mom.
I had asked a friend to go to the bank to get it deposited , they have refused to deposit it because of the Name difference. Hence all the pallava all over again. It’s not the fault of the Resort as that’s the name under which I had booked and emailed them all the time.
I have again had to phone the Resort to tell them what has happened , I was surprised that they put me through the Accounts department directly and Someone actually Talked to me .. and THEY WERE VERY VERY VERYYYYYYYYYY POLITE, thank you to that gentleman (if any of you readers or my friends have bombarded them with phonecalls etc, then it could be because of that too, or maybe almost three months gap made them do that) but nevertheless, they were very polite . He asked me to email the issue to him, and also courier back the wrong cheque to them, then they will re-issue the cheque. FINGERS CROSSED , it will work like a dream everything will be smooth.
BUT… yeah I know there is ALWAYS a BUT.. but what makes me angry (again I know .. doesn’t take much to make me angry these days) , this is common sense , why can’t the bank just accept it , As you can see the cheque is A/C Payee , so there is a proper trial of where the money has come, and where it is going to .. Tomorrow if the bank thinks some other BIKRAMJIT will come and complain where is his cheque then they can find out without a problem what has happened.
Secondly Today they are saying they are having a problem to Deposit the cheque, I have just been to india and withdrawn money with the name BIKRAMJIT, No one batted an eyelid. , Also when they were changing the account after my Dad , did NO ONE see the documentation. I am sure some sort of documentation was provided to the bank and whatever was provided would have had the name BIKRAMJIT SINGH MANN.. Can I sue them for being negligent then 🙂
Here In UK I have never had any problems, I have deposited cheques in my account named.. Mr. B.S.Mann , or Mr. B.Mann or Just Mr. Mann , I have even deposited a cheque with the name BIK MANN. Till now I use to believe what’s in a name .. it’s the person one should know but I have failed miserably.
It’s not just a problem with this bank I have had during my visit I had another with ICICI bank (@ICICI), but I am sure you don’t want to hear another SOB story, So I will keep that Rant for some other time.
As such because of the gap that I was away many of my friends have forgotten me and stopped visiting me , making you all read more sob stories will surly make you all vanish too 🙂 and I don’t want that to happen , now do I ?
Maybe there is something wrong with me 🙂
ok here’s something to have a think about .. when we were kids and we were all learning the alphabets to English language. A – B – C – D ..
How did you go about it .. did you all Rhyme while saying the alphabets loud, I mean One Alphabet at one time .. A (gap) B (gap) C and so on ..
or Did you all go like this
