Airtel / deduction of amont by providing unwanted servies

1 India Review updated:

Dear Sir,
My name is Tushar Shinde and my Airtel number is [protected] since last 7 years. My complaint is regarding providing unwanted services and deducting huge amount from my prepaid balance. Services (such as astrology, video chat) which I don't want are imposed on me and thereby deducting huge amount from my balance.
so you are requested to please do the needful otherwise I have to change my network.
Thanking you

    Mr. Tushar Shinde,
    Airtel company ko isse koi matlab nahi ki aap uske 7 saal se customer ho. usne to aapke paise kaatne hain. ye care to aapne karni hai. follow these steps to deactivate the schemes.
    "Jago Grahak Jago"
    Airtel Mobile company is providing cheap & new schemes daily.
    Do you know how is it doing so ? What is the secret?
    One more question.
    Do you know how many Value Added Services(VAS) are fixed on your mobile number by mobile company without your consent ?
    Airtel Mobile company is fixing/applying unwanted VAS on your mobiles & you may or may not know.
    This is one of the secrets of above question.
    Many customers including senior citizens visit my shop daily to get their mobile recharged. They have been complaining always about deductions by the mobile companies. Among all of these I found a customer (Age 70 Years) of Airtel on whose mobile Airtel Company has applied a record number of SIX VAS such as Facts 55382, Job Alerts, Airtel Call Manager, Karwa Chauth Pack, Kareena Kapoor, All Cricket Pack.
    Airtel company has been deducting a huge amount from his credit balance every month mercilessly. ( For proof I have images of his screen)
    *Suppose for example you or any of your friend/known have an Airtel mobile connection.
    You can check it like this.
    1. Send ' STOP' to 121
    You will get back a message like this if their is a VAS on you mobile.
    "The following services are active on your mobile. To reply type the serial number of the service that you wish to 'STOP' "
    6...& so on

    You can know from above message that how many VAS are applied on your mobile by the company. If you want to STOP these services then follow the steps.
    REPLY '1'
    You will get one more message from the company to confirm again.
    REPLY '1'
    Follow these steps untill you get a message that.
    " Kindly note there are no services active on your Airtel number."
    *After this send one more message to activate DND like this
    'START space 0 to 1909'
    You will get a message to confirm
    Reply 'YES'
    If you think this information is helpful then please help others to save their money & send this information to your friends & relatives.
