Beware Senco Gold And Amazon


Beware of ordering anything from Senco Gold Jewellers, Kolkata and the authenticity of reviews on Amazon.in

Here is the review of my order from Senco that Amazon won’t allow on its site :

 Avoid Company And Products At All Cost.
 
1.Charged More than shown online.
2.Very Late delivery and had to resort to multiple phones to get goods or refund.
3.Delivery company opted for by company tries every means of force and fraud to illegally acquire your PAN/Aadhar photocopy.
4.No reason to believe that sellers themselves might not be involved. Mobile numbers they disclose via e-mails are not in existence.
5.Simply no peace of mind after placing an order with this seller. Or even finally receiving the product.

I placed a minor order on Diwali Day. One of 3 on Amazon. No problem with the rest of the Sellers.

In the case of Senco ,order was delivered only after evoking A-Z Guarantee.

Courier is a private party engaged by the jeweller.

Beware of Safeway, the couriers, even after supposed instructions to the contrary by the jeweller and their own higher ups, attempted to forcibly steal PAN details.

In the days of raids on jewellers, caught on the wrong side of demonetization, not knowing if all copies of my PAN that the delivery person tried to steal was destroyed, is giving me no peace of mind.

Who wants to unwittingly provide cover for the hard to explain/unexplainable purchases of others?

Gold Control History


wealthymattersOn January 9, 1963, finance minister Morarji Desai announced in a nationwide broadcast that starting the next day the possession of gold — barring personal ornaments — without declaration would be illegal. A Gold Control Board was established with wide powers of investigation and seizure of persons as well as confiscation of gold. A comprehensive industry-wide regulation was also introduced. Its centrepiece: a ban on making and selling of jewellery above 14 carats, as against the prevailing trend of 22-carat ornaments.

As with the ongoing demonetisation, the policy was effectively decided by one leader who consulted few experts. This was partly because of the need to maintain secrecy and partly because Desai knew his own mind. Those who were taken into confidence turned out to be as enthusiastic about the move. Prominent among these was Chief Economic Adviser IG Patel. Read more of this post

The Switch


wealthymattersIn 1910 the British GOI increased the import tariffs on silver from 5% to 11%. A market report in 1912, by Pixley & Abell, a gold wholesaler, pointed to a 28% fall in silver demand in the Indian bazaars in the three years following the increase. They attributed this to not just a fall in demand for silver due to tax increases, but also a substitution of gold for silver in people’s savings as gold became more attractive on a relative basis.Between 1910 and 1930 net imports of silver in India fell from 98m ounces to 31m, according to British Geological Survey reports. After this time India gradually became the world’s largest gold consumer, a position it finally lost to China in 2015.
