  1. Heartiest congratulations to all the winners of the contest πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    For all the Bloggers who missed out (including me πŸ™ ), here’s something to chew on :

    “For anything worth having, one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice – no paper currency, no promises to pay but the gold of real service” – John Burroughs

    The wait seems to be endless. Till then, cheers and happy blogging everyone. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  4. Congratulations to all the winners πŸ™‚ <3. A very happy journey to you Disha.
    A very hearty congrats to Naba Di xD. Her gadgets list is increasing with every contest ;).

  5. It wud be a good idea if you mention the winning posts too along with the names of winners…It may help others to understand what won and why πŸ™‚

  6. Yes, infact the contest said every entry gets one. If I am not wrong you wrote 3 entries, Mr. Passey (I read them because you write well πŸ™‚ ) and so did I – so we should get 3 vouchers each.. but still waiting…

  7. Congrats to all the winners…..but I wish their links are published soon.

    I mean…how many winners of “coca cola – win super bike under the cap” do we really know !

    …just sayin !
    Plz don’t mind admin !

  8. Hi,

    I have heard from one of the IPAD winners of this contest that she was charged gift tax for winning the IPAD. She was asked to pay around 7.5k. If this was one of the terms then it should have been clearly stated in the contest T&C. No one likes to be taken for a ride and when it happens to bloggers who spend their valuable time writing and entering contests, then it really saddens me. Even other bloggers who have participated have not got the Flipkart vouchers of 500/. 500 rupees is not a big amount and its not that we really need it, but when we bloggers receive appreciation for our attempts, then we feel happy.
    Blogadda, as one of the premier blogger’s platform in India, I hope you take some measures to rectify this.

  9. Hi Prasanna

    There is a TDS that needs to be cut on the prizes. It is a rule by Government of India. You can read one discussion here and a more recent article on understanding TDS deductions here

    We apologise for not having mentioned in the T&C since the brand thought it is a standard and we were not aware. The flipkart vouchers have been delayed and we have been following up for that. We promise that by the end of next week, everyone will have the vouchers in their inbox.

    Prasanna, yes, we have learnt and in the future activities, we will clearly mention this.

  10. Flipkart vouchers will be sent via email right ?
    and like Ekta pointed it would be good to give link backs to the post as well so that we read the winning entries πŸ™‚ ?
    Thanks blogadda
    wish to have crystal clear T & C’s from now on!

  11. I agree with Prassana that such TDS could be well specified. Reg tax deduction, shouldn’t that be deducted from the sponsor’s side? I am not sure as I haven’t won anything in any contests…but I believe I have never heard about it from other other winners via other blogging platforms.

    The contests shud specify T&C and ideally the sponsors shud bear the gift tax unless it’s given in currency.

    Besides, not everybody who participated got the confirmation mail either.

  12. Yes I agree as I too did not get any mails as such for vouchers. Other sponsors do not ask for such deductions from winning bloggers. Blogadda team you may like to check again incl with other such platform owners.

  13. @Jazz & ALL The mails for the vouchers have already been sent two days back and bloggers have already started redeeming it as well. If you have not got a mail from us, kindly mail us at ASAP>
