I was waiting for availability of OGeneral A.c. 0.75 ton, got a call from Vijay Sales that it is available now.
But they giving some Vestar A.c. as sister brand of OGeneral.

I am confused.

Voltas too is available for fir same price as Vestar, 17000 rs.

I am not sure and neither were sales pepole able to convince it both are from same company.


I would have preferred ogeneral over Voltas, and an still waiting for availability of .75 oGeneral.

Does any one knows or has used Vestar A.c.

Never heard of Vestar AC. Where do they manufacture these ACs? Even if they are linked with OG, then it must be their budget brand for market penetration.

While most of the players are offering 5 year warranty on compressor, it makes sense to look at their after sales service network as well.

Better to go with a brand with reliable after sales service network.

Yes you are right.
Voltas is bigger brand and am using it already.

As now I wanted to upgrade to Ogeneral, as old voltas fail at 38 degrees as night temperature.

But how can people like Vijay Sales can mislead.

They have put a stickers on it of as subsidiary of O general and also is Rs. 5000 cheaper then Ogeneral.
Warranty conditions they claim are same as Parent company Ogeneral.

A Rebel, in pursuit of a memorable life ...
Stay away from Voltas if you need quality and better after-sale services.

I brought two window ac and was facing issues after 1 month of purchase and suffering still continue..

Better choose LG................

Rest choice is yours......................................
