DriveSikho takes pride to address all complaints/concerns brought to our attention by our customers and also understand the importance to understand, classify & differentiate complaints from queries. The policy clearly defines the two.
A complaint may be defined as "An expression of dissatisfaction made to an organization, related to its products and services, or the complaints-handling process itself, where a response or resolution is explicitly or implicitly expected” A complaint may be expressed in person, over the telephone or in writing
A query can be defined as a question, often expressing doubt about something or looking for an answer from an authority. A query is:
- A form of questioning, in a line of enquiry
- In nature of a request for information or guidance
- Where there is an expectation from the customer – for data / clarification.
At DriveSikho, we would like to assure you of the best of our services at all times.
