With this, the number of dealers is also on the rise – both company as well as local dealers. In such a scenario, dealers sometimes overstep and proffer highly lucrative offers that even they cannot sustain and thus the car buyer ends up being cheated. Notably, this is one of the many incidents wherein the dealers have been found to have cheated the customers by charging extra amount and not delivering the car on time. The present incident is believed to ascertain accountability of car dealers across the country.
