I bought a t-shirt from a nearby shop but it did not fit me well. I went back to return the t-shirt but the shopkeeper pointed towards a note in his shop which read- “Goods once sold will not be taken back”. I feel helpless. What do I do now?
I bought a smartphone which had a 1 year warranty to it. After about 8 months, it started giving problems. I asked the service centre to replace it but they said they would change a part instead. But even after changing the part, it was not working properly. I had to go to the service centre every month and they would change a part everytime. Now it has been a year and they are saying if I get a new part changed, I would have to pay for it since the phone is not covered in warranty. What should i do?
