Homi Vyarawalla learnt that at least 16 cars were delivered in the city of Vadodara and her name did not figure on the priority list. She is India’s first photo journalist who was assured by the company that she will be delivered the car on priority basis. Vyarawalla is 96 years old and had booked her Tata Nano when the bookings were on in April. Tata Motors had written to her on April 9 that the car will be delivered to her on priority basis and she had booked the car and duly deposited an amount of Rs. 96,000 for its registration in her name.
Now she has threatened to cancel her booking if the car is not delivered within a week’s time as per the promised schedule by the company. "I have written to the Tata Motors to cancel my booking," said the 96-year-old woman. "I do not know how long I will live..I find it difficult to do anything without the car..It is not a luxury but a necessity for me.. Everybody keeps on enquiring about the delivery and it hurts me as there is no communication from the company in this regard," she added.
