Accepted for rs. 250 plan. The representative informed me that the instrument
Will be fixed within 3 workings days.

No instrument came for me for a fortnight. Because of my urgent requirement, i
Purchased mts datacard.

Modem instrument and told him I will not pay even a penny unless you close the
Dues for revised plan for which no instrument given. He accepted and asked
About earlier usage of rs. 500 to settle completely. I gave a cheque and told

Even I did not bother about my advance deposit if any.
15. Seventh ill treatment, after this also another person in the next month came
And asked about the same pending bill. I said call mr zahir over phone. Zahir
Told this information to the new fellow (I don't know his name). Immediately he

16. Seventh worst ill treatment, the utmost worst treatmentwas happened this
Morning, mr parthasarathy, the caller called me again for the due. I told him
Call zahir and close my issues. He defend like he is perfect and advised me
Unless I close my dues, the issue will persist. I said I didn't get the
Instrument and this issue was already closed with mr zahir. Once again I told
To close the issue and inform me after discussing with mr zahir. Because i
Don't want to be disturbed hereafter. During the conversation he irritated me,
Hence I called him singler name without any scolding word. He called me
Non-stop for five timesdespite my cutting calls without discussing with mr.
Zahir. [i was in session and around 50 trainees in the class also, imagine how
Embarrassing situation]

I am a trainer and busy with training session. Stop calling me for the mistakes
Of your side.
Thanks for your wonderful treatment for a loyal customer [ashamed of myself for
My first preference to airtel datacard in need.]
There is no any communication regarding my advance deposit with airtel, I hope
Airtel cheated me. [i got a call regarding this also I don't want to report

I could remember the day one with airtel. Airtel came to my home and greeted
For becoming customer. Now you have grown up so worst treatment.

It took more than one hour to draft and a bit of irritation

Thanks airtel, bye

my plan name RA 13CUG25(south) my post paid connection no.[protected] is disconnected stating that my address was in low profile. I want to know real reason for my nonactive service to my post paid connection.

pri lines customer services

We are working on our new office, got more than 20 calls from different airtel persons on my mobile for offering PRI lines and nobody has been able to submit the offer. they just keep calling. When I called to 121 for proper guidance on PRI, they said someone would call after doing the feasibilty check. They called but they called for broadband and not for PRI. I have also sent an email to 121 but no response yet. I do not know how does their system works? Do you know someone in Gurgaon who can help in PRI line connection with some knowledge

exorbitant bill

I was intimated on my mobile that my current bill is rs 16281/-.. Which is exorbitant... Unbelievable and greatly hypothetical.. I had already raised the complaint 131714.. On oct 2nd 10 and was told that the same would be addressed and resolved till 11th october. I came in the country on september 4th... I had been complaining from overseas that your engineer had disabled the wireless router password when
He changed the modem and my connnection was being stolen... Inspite of that I paid the bill of 1685 / - so as not to have unnecessary hassles... And to have smooth transition of plan to unlimited...
Also, I had intimated and already been continuosly requesting airtel since earlier month and from 4th september to change my bill plan to swift 1099 unlimited and put the password protection as I feared that my connection was being used by somebody else. Neither anybody called me or addressed the problem of the delay in the plan change.. It was only after my call on sept 17 evening that the same was confirmed to me... The first mail regarding the confirmation was sent to me on 20th sept... Inspite of regular reminders and complaining it was delayed action that caused this situation.. And I will take no responsibility of the same... I already suffered from delayed work projects due to to your delayed action and now you
Are slapping this bill on me which I am not going to accept.. Still as of today there has been no action and reply from airtel but frequent calls for paying the bill.

Resolved no bills sent and connection disconnected

I received a sms mentioning my bill is xxxx. When I checked the bill there was a one time charge of 731 rs. I called customer care for clarification. They said they will email the bill to me of previous month which is listed as one time payment. No email ever sent.
They called me again. I asked for bill. They said they cannot email but they will courier it to me. No courier ever received. I guess not even dispatched.
And then one day they disconnected my phone.
No bill produced and they wanted me to pay the amount. But they cannot provide the bill.
Disgusting services.
Why the hell they cannot send my own bill to me ?
If thats a genuine charge share the bill?
Horrible customer care !!!
Airtel is horrible

refund & very-very bad response from your customer care executive

Dear Sir/Madam,

I had registered a complaint against our digital TV regarding the Refund. It has been 35 days since then and we have kept calling the customer care many times to remind them of our complaint (refund) but they don't even care to look at the complaint once. They often told me that your problem will be solve within 24 and 48 hours and give me a call within 2 hours.But my problem is continue made. I had to finally turn to consumer court for help so that these gays don't repeat this behaviors with anyone in the future.

Resolved worst service

We are bought the two cug postpaid sims in airtel tirupur branch.
(kumaran road, opp maniam classic hotel). tommorrow the sim activated. but after 1 week the outgoing calls are cut. only incoming. after two days it was ready. we call to sumathi and ramachandran, both ask me it was a verification problem. ok. after one week again the same problem. the out going calls are barred. after two days incoming calls also barred. today our sim is compared to toy. not useful. this reason will create the bad name to my company. parties are not trust to my firm. because our contact numbers are untrusted. so we call to ramachandran and sumathi both are not responding this problem. both persons are not to take care of this. but we need solution to this problem. so please forward this complient to airtel head office and take the actions immediately.

    I had 6 postpaid connections of airtell under C.U.G. I wanted to convert my connections to pre-paid and approached their local agent to whom i have paid the full payment in cash on25/06/08 and purchased 5 conversion sim cards and got the confirmation through SMS, that my request has been registered and the conversion will be effected within 9 working hours, but to my dismay till1pm on 28.06.08 nothing has happened. When called the customer service six times they could not sort the problem. I deeply regret for having gone to airtel and fed up with the company.

    I have been using AirTel friends plan from last 2 and half years. But just 15 days back, my cell got stolen, and unfortunately lossed my SIM too.So the first step i have done is, i called Customer Care and asked him to block my number so that the person who had stolen my cell would not miss use my number. After telling him all the details, he asked me certain questions for verification like Name, Address, When did i got this number, my last recharge amount, approx available balance and many more. After going through all these, he said (Customer Care) that after 4 hrs, it will get blocked.
    On the very next day, i went to ARC(AirTel Relationship Center) to get the new SIM card while keeping my existing number. Their i have given my address proof, the person sitting their in ARC said that my SIM with the same existing would start working after 48 hours. But unfortunately it didn't started. I again went to ARC and told them about this problem, now they are saying that this number is not registered with any user. Now my question is, if it not registered with any one then how i was using it from last 2 and half year, also while blocking my SIM card, the customer care executive got information from me and after confirming, he blocked my SIM. Now these AirTel guys are saying that this number is not registered with any one??? Ok. One more question, if it not registered with any one then while calling on that number it should not give "Temp out of service" rather it should give "Number does not exists" message.

    This is really frustrating. It seems that, AirTel does not need customers as their n/w is already grown. Due to their mistake and seek of knowledge, i have to swith to another service provider, which is causing me problem as I have lossed my number stored in that SIM too. Now i didn't have cell number of my near one's and they have the number which is currently not working. I appeal that please some take action on it, i don't any one to suffer the same.

    My mobile no. is 9008026805 I changed my post paid to prepaid last month. I gave all the proofs and eventhough they cut the out going services last week. I went to the airtel office and i spoke to the people then they rectified my proplem and they told we submitted all the documents but why they did it? they requested me to submit again the documents. Again i submitted all the three ids and addressproof to the airtel office on 4th Dec. Again they disconnected my incoming calls. Now I am going to the consume r court to complain against you the consequences we will see later. Even though they had my deposit amount 300/- with them. still they didn't refunded.

Resolved no signal problem

I have airtel dth connection from past year.My Airtel DTH I.D is [protected] It started giving problem about six months back of no signal every fortnight.for getting service we have to really run from pillar to post, frantic calls to airtel cusotmer care and executives are good for nothing. Airtel engineers close the calls without even speaking or visiting customer forget about solving problem.Airtel DTH was bought by me on goodwill of Airtel in broadband service and Airtle Mobile service which i enjoy from apst many years. I am repenting my decision today. Again it is not workjing from 12th of October 2010 and till today i.e 18th october 2010 i must have done atleast 20-30 calls to cusotmer care . I laugh at the name cusotmer care.There is nothing called as customer for them and care is not their in their dictionary.Due to brand name of Airtle many people will keep falling in their prey and their business will keep on running. Cusotmer care is doing great job in closing customer complaint to make their numbers in uptime gurantee.
LIST OF CUSTOMER COMPLAINT REFERENCE NUMBERS:4124480, 4131326, 4124480, 4148544, 4176492.from 12th october to 18th october 2010.

Can any one share email i.d or number of top excutives of customer care or CEO AJAI PURI.where it can be escalated.

    I was so surprised that it worked. I had such a bad experience with Airtel DTH company. I had raised about 15+ Complaint against Airtel DTH for the same problem and yet no solution. Only then I decided to move to consumer court, but had no much idea. I had also threatened Airtel DTH Customer Care saying I will approach consumer court for the same, but still no much progress.

incoming calls are banned

dear sir/madam

my self nikhil rajendra vyas. i belongs to akola dist. at maharashtra
i have an airtel friends2 prepaid connection [protected].

from last 10 days all my incoming calls are banned(blocked) on this number.
outgoing calls are normally working. bt was not able to receive any call.
when someone calls on my this number a recorded tape get played "this number is temprorily out off service"
when i contacted to the customer care of airtel they are not responding me for this problem.
then i went to the airtel store in akola for this problem then the customer executive said to me that my incoming calls are banned because im not receiving the add calls.
and i know this not a problem.
so i want to complaint against airtel services and their customer srevice representatives and their airtel store in akola..

Resolved submission of id proof

I took airtel life time connection in the year 2002 with no:[protected] and submitted the id proof as required airtel later when they asked for it. after so many years they started demanding submission of id proof again and they gave details of an outlet at krishna nagar (opp: icici bank) hyderabad. with lot of difficulty, today i. e. 6.10.2010, when I approached the outlet, the person at the outlet recklessly informed me that they were not having required forms and inspite of their reminders, the airtel people did not supply the forms to them and advised me to go to some other place to submit the id proof. when I asked for concerned telephone number to get the issue resolved, they have not cooperated.
Through this forum, I wish to let m/s. airtel know that customers should not be troubled like this, particularly when there are other service providers in the market. now, if my phone is disconnected, I shall shift to another service provider by submitting the same id proof etc. without any trouble. m/s. airtel if they are interested to retain my subscribership, may talk to me on my phone and give a resolution.

I reseived a sms" your number has won the sum of R95000 in 2010. Airtel promo with ticket no 005p. for details call [protected]" wich I did and spoke to "william" he told me to buy a voutcher of R120 wich I did. After using the number I phoned him and gave him the voutcher number.he was so angry because he told me why did I used the number. I told him that he only need the voutcher number to activate the number and then he will forward it to the account department. He was so angry that he put the phone down and I never heard from him again. I can forward the sms if needed

billing fraud - please be aware


Untill july 2010 I was charged rs. 50 per month for parallel ringing and effective aug onwards airtel revised the charges to rs 1.20 per call as incoming charge for every call I answered on my cell phone instead of landlines, the biggest scam was none of these charges were explained in the invoice nor was I ever informed that these charges have been revised, when I called up the call centre lately I was told that aitrtel will not list the details of cost of parallel ringing on the invoice and also they did not inform me about the change in service plan because that's what their policy is,

So I have a charge on my invoice for rs800 and no information its only when you call the call centre they will tell you its the charge for parallel ringing that is presented on the invoice and dues to some constrainsta they will not mention it on the invoice,

Airtel has gone far away from being a customer centric company to fooling customers and trying to get the cost from indian customers for which they spent in buying zain.

After this episode I have totally lost faith in this company and do not wish to be associated with them in any which ways I would recommend other customers to be extremely cautious of the billing from airtel because some people are being cheated by them.

    Hi Rakesh,

    My first question here is are you guys aware who manages what in your department, I did post my details to the email address requested ([email protected] ), after 3 days i also received a call from a gentleman named Rahul (who announced himself as customer relations manager from Delhi corporate office)who did not know what is my complaint and i had to explain him all post which he said that he handles the cellphones department and will have this case transferred to the landlines department, who would later give me a call and try and resolve my query,

    this keeps getting better, i am assuming here no one knows what the issue is that i have posted, i will update this post once i hear any further from Airtel

airtel promoting porn contents

I have a prepaid connection which gets 3-4 Push Mails daily containing pornographic contents from Airtel. It contains messages like "Hot Bikini Babes, Free Girls, FTV girls, Hot girl pics etc." I have written them several times and contacted them to stop this menace but to no avail.

Their customer support say, this can not be stopped. I must disable push mail service from my handset. Is this a solution?

I am also getting voice calls promoting their ring tones and caller tunes. My phone number is registered under NDNC registry but it does not solve the purpose. They also keep on sending promotional SMS messages.

A few days back they activated "Airtel Picture Post Friendship". I never heard of it earlier. It was again a nuisance which contained several unwanted SMS messages.

I contacted the Nodal Officer of Airtel, customer support several times but I am still getting the promotional alerts. Be careful if you want to continue with this cheap kind of company with cheap promotional tactics and useless customer support.

    Dear Rakesh,

    After posting your comment, you have not bothered to contact me back. Your useless SMS messages and voice calls are still coming. Are you serious about solving this issue or are you are here just for the sake of it. It seems Airtel has all bunch of jokers in their customer support.

    I have only one request - JUST STOP PROMOTIONAL MESSAGES.

    I hope this is loud and clear.

    Even I am a victim of the same perverted messages.

    And even I called their customer support @198, but their executives are incredibly dumb or really not concerned about customers.

    They talk as if I asked them to send those messages and told me to wait for 45 days!!! (I registered to NDNC 3 days back).

    As Airtel is the sender of all these messages, I don't understand why they can't stop it. I think the matter of fact is that they can, but just don't want to.

    My biggest concern is, even school children have mobile phones nowadays...

    And atleast for these kinds of promotions, Aren't they supposed to get permission from the users to send them?

    Seriously, we should think of Suing them in court...

    God, so perverted network.

    Hi Chethan123,

    I have contacted them several times by email and phone but the jokers of Airtel don't understand. They have canned responses. Even after registering NDNC these buggers keep on sending promotional SMS and voice calls. I have deactivated pushmail from my handset as I don't want to see nude pictures of Airtel customer support executives. I am sure they pose themselves nude to earn money. Come on...

    Quite interesting. I have been getting harassed by Airtel also. Today is the 45th day since I registered NDNC.
    Such porn messages should not be allowed even if you are not registered. The NDNC is related to only promotional messages and calls. However, these push messages are about promoting their GPRS services and porn. If you end up clicking on "connect" instead of "exit" you may get charged anywhere from Rs. 10 to Rs. 50. I just received another disgusting message from Airtel to "get ur favorite Bikini girl @50".

    I called 198/121 several times and they keep saying you will not receive it anymore but I still do. I contacted Nodal Officer. Same reply. Now I'm in touch with apallete authority who said that they are busy and wait for at least 7 days. So in the mean time, I have to receive these stupid messages from them. Today is the deadline to stop their messages and tomorrow I have the right to go to the court.

    It's quite easy for me to toss their sim and get another company's which is what I will have to do because they keep activating services and start charging a monthly fee and then say that I activated it from my phone, which is not true. Stay away from Airtel!

    Hi ConsumerIndia,

    I received a reply on this forum 12 days back from Rakesh Ranga to submit complaint to [email protected] . I have submitted a complaint there too but nothing has been done. The Airtel staff is now selling their own nude pictures to earn some extra money in Diwali. Someone from Airtel corporate office also called me, but they were only able to console me. Just stay away from these beggars and con people.

    This Rakesh Ranga seems to have nothing else to do so he keeps going on all the consumer websites and copies the same test pretending himself to be airtel support man. Do not rely on such rascals. Go directly to consumer court and fill a complaint.

really pissed by the broadband service problem


I'm from Noida & using the Airtel connection from quite some time & from last few months we are facing a problem of "frequent packet drops" which is resulting in frequent disconnection while joining web meetings. Every time a new SR is opened and closed but the problem remains there.

The last complaint lodged was [protected] and we were promised to provide resolution. Without even visiting at our home the complaint was closed with comment "LAN card not working" while at that time no-one was at home and the modem was switched off.

The same guy visited last time and despite our plea that the LAN card is working properly because we have been using the same LAN card to connect to our office network without any issue, this guy closed the case with the comment that LAN card is not working. Just to brief you that we are using 3 laptops and all have the same packet drop issue.

Another guy who visited our home said that packet drops are common & that it is not even an issue & that broadband connection is just for browsing purposes & not for web meetings & that we should go in for a leased line.

All this makes me wonder if people at Airtel are even qualified enough to resolve this problem than to keep on giving me such excuses. In a nutshell, i can say that i'm really pissed by the kind of pleas and resolutions your technical team is providing from last 2 months but have no capability to resolve this problem.

    Hi Rakesh,

    I really don't know that how many calls/mails i need to do to get a proper engineer look into this problem. Even after repeated assurances from you side the problem is still the same & no one even bothered to pay a visit or even call me, forget about getting this problem resolved.

    Every time a complaint is lodged you guys send those same field guys (your so called engineers) who don't even the brains to understand the actual problem but instead they either blame the location of our flat, our LAN cards or even to an extent that they even say that broadband is not for chatting/conferences.

    Not sure if you really looked into the problem before posting a comment on this forum.

Resolved no recharge done

got airtel dth connection 1 year back. not able to recharge. several calls to customer care has not yielded any results. customer care executives kiran, satish, syed, etc., are least bothered with the complaints lodged. better to close down the company, when the services are so bad. fed up of calling customer care. wonder what their bosses are doing. may be they are also like their staff very irresponsible. would advise all don't ever take airtel dth connection and regret later. as spoken to customer care, the complaints would be used for training purpose is ridiculous. the highest bosses should be trained properly in teaching their staff to attend to the complaints. else it is better to stop these gimmicks in fooling the customers as it amounts to harassment. please wake up from the slumber all airtel dth service bosses and take your staff to task for not carrying out customer service properly. i would also like my dth service to be cancelled at the earliest. kindly confirm the action to the following number-[protected] mr. umesh. goodbye to airtel dth service. - umesh arikady.

abusive calling from airtel collection center

Grievance regarding ABUSIVE calling
I am a platinum regular airtel customer and have a landline (4318188) & mobile airtel connection ([protected]) which is in use. We had also taken up broadband connection from airtel (4540103) which unfortunately gave us a lot of problems as for months at end the internet never used to work hence we got it disconnected.Inspite of the fact that the internet was not working airtel had been sending us bills and we had spoken to the customer care that if the internet was not working then on what basis were these internet charged bills being sent to us. Regarding this internet connectivity problem which we had been facing with we had spoken to Mr. P.L.Gupta at this no-4441255. He assured us that somebody shall come from the office to sort out the problem, but nothing of this nature ever happened. We still continued to receive bills which were absolutely not valid and when we tried speaking to Mr Gupta he was never available.
Now since past one week, all of a sudden, we stated receiving continuous abusive calls after every 2 minutes from airtel connection center from this [protected]. The caller was very rude, illiterate and he used very bad abusive language which he had no right to do so. He crossed all limits when he continuously started called my school going child and ailing mother with the same abusive language giving them unnecessary mental torture. I am taking legal action against this sort of behavior. All this mental torture for a meager amount of Rs 2000/-. Is this the way airtel works?
Money had never been an issue. Kindly go through my past payment records. All my payments have been made very timely. If Mr. Gupta had sent in some decent airtel officer we would have sorted it out in an amicable manner but this is a bit too much. I am now planning to take strict legal action this collection center agent for the sheer mental harassment which he has given to all of us. He has no right to call my family members & everybody else for payment for the phone number which has been disconnected. This is ridiculous attitude on your part.

Please intervene and get this sorted out on priority. Please do the needful at the very earliest

Mr. Ajay Bhalla
