Vodafone / atrocity and deficiency of service by vodafone – mobile no.[protected]
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a retired official from State Bank of India and a subscriber of Vodafone mobile. Since last 4 days I am receiving repeated SMS and unsolicited calls from Vodafone Customer Care to submit filled in Application Form, 4 photographs, Address proof and Photo identity to their Store. Whenever I try to call any number they interrupt me and are not ready to hear my problem. When I told them that I have already submitted all the documents and photograph, they assured me that persons from Vodafone will come to my residence to verify those documents. I replied them it is OK and I will show the visiting officials all the original documents.
But surprisingly today morning they blocked all my outgoing calls. After my repeated requests they are not allowing me to register a complaint with them or call their Nodal Officer at Guwahati to solve the problem. Instead of verifying my submitted documents they are harassing me. I have checked the DoT Circular No.1-34/2006-VI (Pt I) dated 30-09-2009 regarding Re-Verification of Mobile Subscribers. Nowhere is it written to harass the genuine customers. I am not a foreigner or a criminal. I have over 22 years service and State Bank of India and have good academic records. Why the pensioners or retired persons are treated like criminals by Vodafone. This is a clear instance of atrocity and deficiency in service which Vodafone is doing in the name of DoT guidelines. Every time they are telling that calls are interrupted by DoT and not by Vodafone. They are only doing what DoT is instructing them to do. They feel very sorry for the harassment of customers due to DoT guidelines. Other mobile service providers like BSNL is not harassing its customers as Vodafone is doing.
I like to mention that I am maintaining Bank accounts for many years; but the Banks never asked me to submit Account Opening Application, Photo, Address Proof or ID proofs for the second time. I am filing Income-Tax Returns for many years; but the Income=Tax Department never asked me to file the returns twice. I am shocked on this customer unfriendly and unprofessional behavior of Vodafone Customer Care. Some strict actions should be taken against such service provider.
I shall be grateful if you kindly look into the matter and save the genuine customers from harassment, mental agony and financial loss due to non-availability of essential mobile service to its registered subscribers. Also please initiate appropriate against the erring mobile service providers who are harassing the genuine Indians and Pensioners.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you,
Regards and best wishes,
