Freedom 251, ‘Made in India’, Freedom 251 smartphone seekers trolled by unresponsive order website
New Delhi: Freedom 251, the ‘Made in India’ android smartphone which was launched amid major fanfare on Wednesday, hit a roadblock a day later as on Thursday, users complained of website issues hampering their bookings.
The phone can be booked online through between 6 am and 8 pm from February 18 to February 21. On clicking the 'Buy Now' option, the site asks users to fill in some related details. The company is charging Rs 40 per unit for shipping the device taking the total cost to Rs 291.
However, once the user fills in the details and hits 'Pay Now', the site redirects the user to the same buy now page with a completely blank page or with blank columns for filling in the shipping address.

Does this Ring a Bell ? Black Money Disclosure Scheme announced by Union Government last year , called for 30 % tax + 60 % penalty + 10 years in prison , for any illegal foreign assets declared AFTER the closure of a 3 month window A few hundred persons came forward to disclose , approx Rs 4,000 Crores of illegally held foreign assets Compare this with the estimate of Global Financial Integrity , which says , Indians stashed away in foreign banks , about Rs 34.5 lakh*crores of BLACK MONEY, between 2004-2009 ( 10 years ) ! Obviously , those hoarders of BLACK MONEY , have discovered better ways to transfer their money to India and convert into WHITE MONEY Here is one possibility : * Find a China made electronic product in great demand in India , costing Rs 3000 at normal export price * Ask Chinese Exporter to send it to BLACK MONEY owner's India Operations , for an official invoice of Rs 200 * Send the balance Rs 2800 to Chinese Exporter, directly from BLACK MONEY owner's foreign bank account * Indian Operation will # remit Rs 200 to Chinese Exporter , through official banking channels # accept online orders on its web site @ Rs 300 per piece against Credit Card payment # book 10 million online orders in 3 days , to collect official / advance payments of Rs 300 crores # avail of loans offered by Electronic Development Fund launched by Central Government # avail of Rs 25 crore subsidy under Gujarat Govt policy for Electronic Products # avail import duty concessions for electronic products, likely to be announced in next Union Budget # claim to help bridge the " Digital Divide " by offering internet connectivity to millions of poor Indians # claim to support " Make in India " initiative # claim to create jobs # start exporting ,"India-made" smart phones @ $ 6 per piece to Europe / USA,- and win Govt Support ! I just don't understand why news papers / web sites / social media / other Indian Manufacturers / Trade Association etc are puzzled at this purely Indian Innovation of putting to good use, BLACK MONEY stashed abroad ! The only way to bring back those Rs 34.5 lakh*crores , is to formalize / legalize this innovation ! As far as STOPPING future generation of BLACK MONEY is concerned , the only answer is my oft-repeated suggestion to withdraw current paper currency notes of Rs 500/1000 and replace these with new plastic notes embedded with microscopic ( thinner than hair ) RFID sensors ! Dear Shri Arun Jaitley-ji : Does what I say , RING a BELL ? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- / blogs 18 Feb 2016
