Hi,
Get it checked if bleading is done properly.Also effectiveness of brake should never be too sharp so as to avoid skidding.

Yes, that is a good answer given by Shiv Kumar.
No doubt Zen brakes are not that very good but it is okay
for its funcioning but not sharp. Sharp will get a bit of skidding but it is doing its work.You have to press harder and see.I also have a similar car done 67000 Kms in the last nine years and I am very happy with it but for Engine Noise which Maruti Engineers could not do anything. It is so bad that it is like a Sewing machine in our Building when it comes at night.

Please check the drum and disc if there is any rust or
any corretion. Apply some penetrating oil or use to slightly
apply 0-water paper.

Why don't you get disc brakes installed ? Ask your service center people.
