Comments1.BIG NO to BATA Hyderabad Punjagutta - By: Sam | Sep 28, 2012• This is happened to me in Hyderabad @ Punjagutta shoe room. There is a flaw in several BATA models. Right side strip is bigger than the left one. The shop guys are not even accepting them for return one we buy, even that is a problem at their side. I checked nearly 20 pairs, all of them were at the same condition. I requested them to not put that model in display to avoid my situation to the next customer.• I will say Big no to BATA from this moment.
2. Dont even think of it -By: Raj | Jun 26, 2012 I was brand lover of Bata for decades because of their quality and reliability of products were high. Now days they forgot their loyal customer base and just wanted to sell their NAME. Because their quality of products falling down and no value on the product for the price (road side shoes are far better) I am leaving from Bata loyal community.
3.Good service and delivery By: Rahul | Feb 08, 2012Placed order on 26th Jan 2012 paid by Cash. Got instant confirmation of order. Later when I inquired about the product delivery ,they said it will be delivered on 3rd Feb 2012 and it was delivered on 3rb Feb 2012. Websites also provides all the necessary information and images as required.
4. The best qualityBY Sonia | May , 05,2012I had purchased a pair of shoes from Bata. As I always keep Bata as my first preference. I like the quality it provides and so I choose it. It has high durability than other shoes in the market. I hope they keep up the standards.
Research Conclusion• Bearing all the limitations in mind the research was continued just for the fact that, it would only give an insight into the problem at hand. The researcher does not expect all the recommendation to be carried out by the company.
