Refund of security deposit

I have paid a security deposit of Rs.3000 to AIRCEL a year back for activating international roaming. I liked to withdraw the same by deactivating the roaming facility. I went to the aircel store in OMR, chennai and gave a letter. They promised me to send the cheque in 45 days. It's been more than 90 days and I have not received any cheque. Then I called customer care and enquired the same. The person informed me that no such process exist and they can deduct the bill from my deposit. I have agreed to that and sent a mail to the nodal officer.

After the bill came, I called customer care again and asked them to deduct the amount from deposit. They have not done yet and finally my out going calls are blocked. Its been 3 days my outgoing is barred and several complaints made day and night to activate my outgoing. They understood the problem, but not ready to help me. Finally today when I spoke to Customer care, then told me that there is no record of 3000 deposited in my aircel account.

I am an employee of scope international and I have all communication proof and compliant numbers with aircel. Is there any legal action that can be taken for this ever prolonging issue and not so useful customer service.

Refund Overdue

I had a post-paid connection with Aircel which was surrended after my relocation to Hyderabad from Chennai.
An advance payment of INR 1200 which i had made is pending from Aircel. The customer care department informed that one has to WAIT for 60 days from date of disconnection (May) to initiate the refund process. The due date for that was mid-July.

I am still waiting.

I have sent more than 20 emails till date, and they respond by saying that the "concerned department" is looking into the matter.When i was a customer. I used to get repeated reminder calls for making the bill payment, even though I had given a standing instruction to debit my account. Why would you remind someone to pay, when they have undertaken to automatically make the payment on the due date?

Why is Aircel making me run and beg them for money which is anyway due to me? Is this common, or have i been specially chosen for this treatment?

And in each of their mails, they still refer me as " a valued customer, and that they desire for a long and fruitful relationship". Why do they copy and paste such empty words in their emails, when the service they provide tells a different story. It sounds like Indian Railways saying that they sincerely regret the inconvience caused by their train's delay. As if it makes any difference whatsover.

By the way, When i surrendered my earlier connection with Vodafone, it took me a year to get the refund of my security deposit.

frustrating process by Aircel

This is Ganesh babu from Chennai velachery,
On 23rd of june I bought a new 3G dongle from velachery aircel centre, i submitted the photo copy of my driving license and my passport sized photo, within 10 days my service has been barred and i asked customer care and they told your address proof hasn't been verified yet so resubmit the proof again, i re submitted my address proof id proof and passport sized photo in same velachery aircel centre by 3rd of july, they activated the service agin, but now i got a call from aircel while i am browsing and asked for my address details i told them the details, now they are telling that we did not get ur address details yet so submit your details again in aircel centre, it seems that they are mocking me, even it is not a mobile phone to carry and be online anytime anywhere, the verification process of aircel is frustrating, they didn't call my alternate mobile number for verification. but again and again asking to submit address proof, what is the resoluion for this? if they bar my data card again i will migrate to any other service.

Myaccount login

Hello everyone,

Am an Aircel Post Paid customer from the last month. Tried to pay my bill using the link https://auth.aircel.com/aircel/jsp/LoginSelfcare.jsp. I can enter my credentials, but can't see my account. Just throwing an error as "Unable to process/retrieve your request now.Please try again". Am seeing this error from the last month end.

I tried bulk times to short the issue by using forget password options. But, no use.I have send the mail to aircel service but no response.

Dear Aircel, please short the issue soon.

Outgoing Disconnected

With regards to enabling outgoing facility for both of my numbers, I have been holding Aircel account for more than 6 years and the bill amounts have been paid regularly. Though, there is credit limit of 1500, all of a sudden; outgoing facility has been disconnected. I understand there is an outstanding payment of 207 Rupees. I am not sure about this one time payment, when I checked with all your customer services associates; they are not able to find out the why it has been charged hence requested us to lodge a complaint. The complaint has been lodged more than 2 times and there is no single response any of the teams.I am deeply concerned and worried about the service that you guys provide. I have been trying for the past 4 hours for enabling the numbers. The worst part, aircel having to as pay absolutely nothing in the form manners or even a gesture of apology for their inefficiency and incompetency.
