Young, working people in India have a new best friend—renting. From furniture and appliances to vehicles and even, well, drinking water subscriptions. So when Subhajeet Rout signed up for online home rental platform Nestaway, he didn’t expect he’d be calling it “the biggest mistake of [his] life” not much later.
Rout registered with Nestaway due to its “hassle-free” renting claim. It has been anything but, says the 26-year-old avionics engineer based out of Hyderabad.
“It’s a Pandora’s box of issues. Where do I begin?” he exclaims. Rout’s frustration with the platform has resulted in him starting a petition on Change.org called Say No to Nestaway.
