Anand Mahindra Bookings Glitch
Mahindra Scorpio has always been a popular product in our market. With this latest update, it became more capable and modern than ever. People took a liking to the SUV instantly and queued up for the bookings to avail of the introductory prices offer which was valid for the first 25,000 bookings. However, as soon as the bookings opened, people flocked to the portal resulting in a glitch at the payment partner of Mahindra. People found the “502 Bad Gateway” error. This caused them to lose the opportunity to book the SUV at introductory prices as the first 1,00,000 bookings were complete in mere 30 minutes.
