Have a trans guy check this sounds like there is internal trouble with trans. Also scan for codes.

We don't have that vehicle here in the US so we don't have specifics on it but that usually means you have to replace the dash cluster, assuming the speedometer is still working.

What do u mean by dash cluster. And what specifications do u have in the US.
Generally how oft should servicing be carried. When gear 1 of any automobile doesn't move well until u move to 2, what can be the likely causes. Thanks.T

From your description it sounds as if there is an internal trans problem so have a trans gy check this out. If it doesn't move in first then only in second something is wrong inside the transmission.
