Consumer complaints and reviews about Airtel DTH

Feb 12, 2019

Money getting deducted without service.

I'm not able to view most of the channels (Account number_3017643728) which i choose as part of guidelines from TRAI from Feb 1 on wards.Out of 135 chosen channels,i'm not able to view ~59 channels which includes most entertaining paid channels .Since Feb 1 st,i'm calling customer care and everyday i got reply saying back end problem/application down/server down issues and wait for 2 hrs.They were even not ready to register complaint.Finally after so much of shouting,they registered a complaint on Feb 07(Ref no:85746088).Its not been resolved even after 5 days and when i called yesterday they again opened other ticket saying that something went in previous ticket ...All 11 days ,they deducted per day amount from my account without service. There should be some system which should control all these co operates regarding consumer complaints.

New package not activated

I have changed my package as per TRAI instruction. But after 3 days passed and it is not activated. Talked to customer care three times and was told that it will be activated in two days time. But nothing happened up to now. My money is being deducted everyday without watching any thing on TV.

# Airtel Team, You guys promised me that you will change my pack within 24 hrs, but its been 5 days no revert from you and if we call your worst customer care number we need to wait Min 20 min on call itself to connect and then call get connects.
After the call get connects of no use bcz no one responding properly. So my simple & straight forward question is why can't you shut down this business if you are not able to serve...?????
Finally i can say you are the Most, Worst, Worst service provider in India ever.

Attaching the proof below for your reference.

New Tariff/Plan not activated

In spite of creating the new plan well in advance before Jan 31st deadline, the new plan has not been activated till now(Feb 5).
Twice I managed to speak to customer support guys, both of them promised that the new plan will be activated in 24hrs but nothing has happened even after 5 days and I'm charged based as per my old plan.

Very disappointing service by Airtel. Looks like they were not prepared for this change and lacks the infra to handle this kind of migration.

Problem in changing my own pack TRAI

I had taken the infinity package for one year which costs 5800 p.a , I am fine with that. Now the removed yearly package and changed to 701 p.a . I have chosen my TRAI pack now send the request. But Airtel DTH team is not activating my package. They are saying atleast we must have 200 balance in Airtel DTH account I have recharged twice but nothing was activated.
Old package they didn't changed it was simply consuming my balance evryday.
And customer care service is not good when we call customer care we have wait in queue for 6-15mins.

Airtel DTH Not working.

I have paid for 7 months and since last few days I am noT able to get the service from dth airtel. Despite of multiple calls to customer care and email there Is no resolution. All of my channels stopped and balance is deducted... also they told me over phone even if I surrender this connection there will not be any refund.
I feel cheated bY the company and there is no one to hear thE customer complaint..
I appreciate if you can help.mE on this matter...

I would like to highlight that This is not the first time I am getting Trouble with airtel dth... and customer care is providing us incorrect information as they give a different cause of the problem each time where I call them..

DTH not working for one week no body visited

Ac no. 3027840480

My DTH stopped working with b0001 code 2 days after taking connection. I lodged a complaint with airtel on 27 dec and so far called several times. Every time they say request is closed but no one visits or solves the problem. Ian fed up with this for loosing money on this. I want to get my money back and shift to Tata sky instead.

fradulent behaviour of Airtel DTH company

My subs no is 3005163536

on 17th november2018, I was asked to recharge with rs 4299 to view all the existing channels in the package for one year. Accordingly I paid rs 4299.
From the next day, three channels of the package were blocked. I asked customer care several times. everytime a new person receives the call and promise to resolve it in 24 hours with a new no. But all in vain. Finally, on 30th december, one person from customer care informed me that these channels are not in your package.

It seems that these mobile and dth companies are WORST THAN PICK POCKETERS.

Poor service- reinstall the Airtel DTH

Since last 10 days I am chasing Airtel customer care and service engineer to reinstall my DTH without any success.
Airtel DTH is the worst service ever experienced. Customer care / service engineer is not bothered about the customer and they are only searching for excuses.

I am fed up with Airtel and now left with only one option that to scrap the Airtel DTH and buy some other.

Fed up with Service Engineer and careless Airtel

My DTH connection no is 3000185215 almost 10 years long.
In last 10 years anytime if I asked for any service generally of no signal error the so called service engineer make some good money from us. I have no option at that time because if i don’t go with their option they raise their hand with no fix. We do get no signal but they make some other reason purposely. Major point is Airtel do assign these third party to provide service to their own customer but Airtel never take feedback from us about quality of service specially overcharge issue.
On 22nd sep again I asked service for no signal and this time again the so called service engineer make the bill of 820 instead of 150. He asked me to upgrade the STB with offer of all HD channel free for 2 months. I had no plan to upgrade as of now because I have plan of purchase new smart tv and so planned to upgrade with new tv in coming 2/3 months. But as the offer placed I accepted.
But later I found it was some selected HD channels are free that I really don’t watch. If It was open that I will get selected channels then I could see the list of free channel and decide accordingly This time I complained because it was not acceptable for me that this service engineer will make me fool on his interest and Airtel silently allowing them. I decided to discontinue my service with Airtel and not gone for recharge again after my balance over on 2nd October. But Airtel came forward and asked me to continue again with a negotiation with field management. On request again I recharged my account with 400 but the assurance I received not fulfilled. I made call on daily basis but I only received assurance but no commitment on deal. It was proven that these third party field agents are not in control of Airtel.
As a 10!years long customer I feel to express my grievances that I got double cheated. So finally I am discontinuing my service and not going to recharge my account again.
Bye bye Airtel

Upgrade to HD

Staff are not trained how to deal with customers, technicians cheat by overcharging and when you report this you have to wait for ages for someone to call you
Everyone should stop airtel and move to dishtv

Very careless employees

I had raised a complint regarding upgrade to HD box, but no one bothered to take care of my complaint, this is very embarrassing for me infront of my family that i couldn't change a simple set top box, and the behavior of your employees are terrible, they didn't know how to talk to the guest, sorry for that but from today onwards i can't continue the services of Airtel Dth, i would like to take a new connection from any other service provider. Pathetic experience ever, i also make sure that in my building there are 10 families who are using airtle i will tell this to all of the and influence them to switch the services from Airtel, never recommend anyone to take the bad services from team Airtel, and i will destroy your box and antinaa infront of my society so that people are aware from all the situations.

No P{icture

I have 12 connections from Air Tel and always pay my Full Annual Subscription in Advance. The Height of efficiency is that when payment and renewal are due I get Host of messages and personal phone calls from the company and Franchise But soon after the performance becomes Hopeless and disoriented All communications to the Franchise are bounced off with a curt reply please call customer support The customer care has one line answer that all routes are busy please call again later And that is true for 24 x7
On the other hand I have Two connections from TATA Sky WITH Hardly any complaint And very Prompt Service

Probably I Have made a huge MISTAKE
