Vsnl Tata Indicom Total Internet Service 100hrs Pack / Refused to accept validity period 24 months for 100hrs pack

1 India Review updated:


This is to inform you that I am availing VSNL Dial up Internet Pack for 100 hrs. for one year, which is going to expire on 22 June 2007.

In the mean time VSNL has come up with a renewal offer of 100 hrs. pack for Rs.898/- valid for 24 months (Double validity) subject to renewal on or before 15 May 2007.

I had accepted their offer and sent my consent mail to them on 13 May 2007 which VSNL have registered on 13 May 2007 vide VSNL order no 1243626 (scanned copy of the same is attached for your ready reference). My wife received the pack on 18 May 2007 and handed over a cheque no. 880869 dated 14 May 2007 for Rs.898/- drawn on Canara Bank, Canning Street Branch, Kolkata favouring Videsh Sanchar Nigam Ltd to the bearer of VSNL

However on website when I tried to signup for renewal, I found the validity of the pack to be only for one year instead of Two years, so I did not continue and logged out from their website immediately.

I sent an e-mail to their Customer Service on 19 May 2007 made complaint regarding this validity but they have refused to accept validity for 24 months because it was not renewed on or before 15 May 2007 (although in their confirmation the date of registration was mentioned as 13 May 2007).

Sir, am I not eligible to get the double benefit renewal offer for 24months when it was registered by them on 13 May 2007 and when the payment to VSNL was made on time.

I would request you to take proper action regarding this matter so that I am not deprived of this facility.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,
