I am a customer of Airtel
My mobile no. is [protected].
Account No. 102-[protected]
Bill no. [protected]

My latest bill shows previous balance for an Amount of
Rs. 1,142.49(Rs. 1092 + 50)
This previous bill of Rs. 1092 was to be deposited before last date 8 Nov.
I had made an online payment for the same as Rs. 1093 through online payment system of Airtel India by my citibank credit card on 7 Nov at 8.30 a.m.
Airtel at that time accepted the payment & gave my bank, Citibank an approval no. for this payment.
My bank has cited this no. as : 060875.
But, even after all this Airtel Billing department & customer care doesnt stop harrasing me. Everyday i get numerous messages, & phonecalls asking for this amount.
Payment that i have already made well before last date.
It should be noted here that I am not going to make the payment again.
I have given these details alongwith the approval no. to the customer care representatives, but the unethical & Unjustified demands & phonecalls don't stop here
I was even threatened that my connection will be disconnected.

I am warnig Airtel, If they dont stop such an unlawful act here & send me an apology letter & waive off these charges, the company might have to face repercussions in Consumer Court.

As for the Billing demands for this month, due on 9 dec. I have already sent the cheque, via drop box, at manav chowk, Rohini.
The amount in this cheque is Rs 427, as this is the amount actually due on me according to call charges Last month

Hoping for an urgent & favorable responce

    I am equally disappointed with airtel services. My mobile number is [protected] and I am using services from last three years. I avtivate and deactivated the GPRS only on one or two weekends in august 2009. Now I come to know that it was never disconnected. this is happening from two and half months and full charges are levied in my bill. THis is really sad and makes me feel fooled and looted. I talked to rep and they say they can waiver only one month charge and not for the full period. I am planning to switch to some other subscriber.

  • Dear Sir/Madam

    We are having CUG (5 No.s) of Kolkata - the no.s are [protected], [protected], [protected], [protected] and [protected].

    Against the Bill dt. 12.03.09 of all these five no.s, total Rs. 5986.75 was paid vide our Chq no. 991171 of 31.03.09 of Axis Bank Ltd. which was debited from our Bank on 03.04.09. But after receiving the Bills of 12.04.09, we find that all the accounts are showing incorrect balance. This is only due to the reason that in last month the credit of one account was put in other account. After our complaints (no. [protected], [protected] etc), hope now the accounts are regularised.

    Now can you kindly let us know what is the actual payable amount against all of these five no.s (agst Bill dt. 12.04.09) separately so that the payment can be made at an early date.

    Looking for your quickest reply.

    my Airtel No is9987262728 and Customer Account No is 109-[protected]
    On 5th Aug at 11a.m. I had made Cash Payment of Rs2317/= at Airtel Relationship Centre Mira Road and had received SMS confirmation of this in the A/N.
    I was shocked to find that from 7p.m of same day ALL OUTGOING CALLS WERE BLOCKED and inspite of several trials Customer Care [protected] was not responding to my Complaint on 5th Aug
    At last when get through Customer Care Executive I was told that it will take at least FOUR HOURS to sort out the problem of OUTGOING CALLS NOT GOING.
    This shoddy Service is unacceptable and as a Snior Journalist in a leading Business Journal, Iwill take up this issue with the highest authority. Incidentally this is my second attempt to submit this Memo-the previous time website was disconnected before I could get the Confirmation Code. If this happens again it would not be good for Airtel and I have saved this on my P.C.

    For the last 2-3 weeks, I have been getting too many promotional messages from AIRTEL, perticularly from a number [protected]. This is the updated record of messages for last two days.
    May 1st 7.51 P.M
    May 1st 10.37 P.M
    May 2nd 12.51 A.M
    May 2nd 4.59 A.M
    May 2nd 7.12 A.M
    May 2nd 9.28 A.M
    May 2nd 5.01 P.M
    The message reads '' Thank you for using Airtel services. Enjoy the biggest ...etc.
    Just go thru the times, and think, is it promotional or demotional messages . I went to your Faridabad office at Neelam Bata Road to-day ie 02.05.2008 at about 10.20 A.M. The staff was not in full attendence. The girl incharge was over occupied. I waited there for about half an hour when a lean gentelman entered, to whome the girl said, you are half an hour late . He sits on the edjoyning to the girl. He spent about 7-8 minutes cleaning his table. Then he put his mobile on charging. In the mean time he got a personal call which lasted for a good 10 minutes. As soon as he finished talking, a staff member appeard with his cell and told the man ( not gentle by any standard) that "so and so" wants to speaks to him. Another 7-8 minutes. I was irritated.I asked him to attend to my problem. Saying yes with his patented expressionless face, he philosophically studied my phone, pretended to enter some data in the computer, and asked me send the message he wrote on my cell, to 121. I did so. In return another message appeared that " YOU ARE ALREADY REGISTERED WITH NDNC. ON 27.08.2007 YOUR REFERENCE NUMBER FOR REGISTRATION IS1000575620. It was 10.44 A.M. I asked the idiot, if this message is of Aug. 2007, then how come that i am still recieving the promotional messages. To this he said, these will be stopped from from now onwords. And dear AIRTEL EXECUTIVES I recieved your promotional messages after that time too. Study the abovr details. Now with no other alternative left, I shall stop all the Airtel phones I owe and eventually surrender all these number if these silly odd hour promotional nessages are not stopped.
    The numbers which I shall surrender becauucse of your intended harressment are: [protected], [protected], [protected]
    Though I should'nt say thanks, but still say thanks
