    Default ~~ Why do we pay OWN??? ~~

    I visited a wedding party at Shehnai Lawn near Askari/ Dalmia. Shehnai lawn is located on a little cliff which is right behind Honda Drive-in. I was surprised to see from there that Honda Drive-in was packed with latest City & Civics, not only the showroom, but the workshop's entire ground floor, first floor and the roof was packed with hondas. one thing more surprising was that a big portion of Shehnai lawn's parking was also packed with city and civics. there were 2 guards to look after the unregistered vehicles. i dont understand why do they gave longer delivery times when they dont even have space to park the cars. production seems adequate enough.

    Then after few days i went to Awami Markaz which is right next to Toyota Central Motors. Same thing i saw there too, Corollas and cuores were packed not only inside but on the roof as well as the plot besides Toyota motors and you wont beleive there were cars parked all along the railway line that runs behind the showroom.

    If there is so much capacity to produce the cars why arent they delivered??? i dont see cars being delivered so frequently as their quantity appears in the showroom.. the question is "if its an artificial shortage, being created by the manufacturers, and that there are enough vehicles available, WHY DO WE PAY OWN????

    ----------------PLEASE STOP PAYING OWN---------------
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    People who study economics are well aware of terms like cartel, artificial market shortage, demand versus supply and monoply. Just use a dictionary to understand these terms and you will understand that why we pay "own" and how government is responsible for it.

    This is because most of the people who book the cars dont actually need them! they book a car for investment purpose only, so when the delivery time is up, they refuse to take their vehicles from the showroom until they get a 'genuine' needy buyer, who is forced to pay the OWN. This may be the reason why these showrooms have more than enough cars still waiting to be delivered!!!! and they dont even have space to park them.

    Normally most of the showroom persons are involved plus many of the investors, who use to invest in other areas such as property... earlier, now invest in booking cars these days. When the delivery time is up, they prefer seeking a higher OWN value until they get the desired one... Showroom people also have some commision in this whole scenario!

    So in this way those who need to buy a car are forced to pay OWN as the actual lot is already occupied by the investors.

    anyway its something which is NOT good at all and should be DISCOURAGED by the masses.

    Agree with beeberg
    Its a matter of prestige for many to tell that the car is purchased by paying own.

    Mainly, people pay OWN because they are unable to distinguish between right and wrong and the gap is getting narrower day by day. Standards, Morals, ethics are getting low and low and low and we are all very proud of what is happening. If one lives life with some principles for self guidance, then maybe he/she has the courage to swim against the tide but sadly this is true for a mere handfull.

    people who pay "own" have never worked a hard day in theier life, they are people who think money grows on trees and sadly it's these idiots who are promoting manufacturers to become more greedy and slow down production or just hoard all the cars in order to give the impression that the supply is low which will artificially raise the demand for the vehicle.

    People who pay own don't deserve to have a car in the first place.

    MUPPETS!!

    Do me a favour, if you ever meet anyone who pays "own" ask them:

    1. sabar nahi tha?

    2. bohot paisay they?

    3. itni khy juldi thi?

    4. marlet kiu kharab karrehey ho?

    5. kachray ka itna demand kab sey hai?

    and let us know what their answers were.
