Recharge validity practice

Now a days , all mobile networks & cable networks are started 28days validity for recharge. When we are getting paid for 30 days, why these guys are practicing/imposing the rule of 28days validity. Finally we're paying 13 months payment to this guys.

No Technician assigned even after 48 hrs of complain

My customer id is 3021674433. I have been very regularly facing problem of not been able to view certain or all channels. This happens once every 7-10 days. Calling the Airtel Customer Service is a complete nightmare. I had lodged the same complain on 26th April. Ranjith, a technician was assigned to come on on 27th April. Despite my calling him more than 30 times from my registered phone number, he didn't reapond to my calls at all. On top of that, he had the audacity to send a message to me saying the case is resolved. This is the 3rd time he has behaved like this with us.
I called up Airtel customer service to complain about this and requested repeatedly to ensure Mr. Ranjith is not assigned to any of my complains is future.
I had spoken to Floor Managers: Mr Bhavesh, Mr. Dilprit and Ms. Aman. They all assured me they had documented my request.
Even after 48 hours of my complain they have not managed to send any technician. Each time I call up to follow im given a new timeline which is again postponed till next day. And whenever i ask for the technician's details, I'm told Ranjith has been assigned. Despite repeatedly requesting not to send him, the customer service team again assigns only him saying there is nothing documented in my records about my complain and request about Ranjith.
One Floor Manager, Ms. Prapdeep ( i think based in gurgaon office ) actually kept on insisting that I have allow Ranjith to attend to my complain as i had no other choice and if i refused it is my problem and that no other technician will attend. Despite knowing the harassment i had been facing, Ms. Prapdeep actually had the audacity to insist that only Ranjith will be send, otherwise it is your problem.
This is pure harassment from Airtel service center. There is absolutely no accountability and no responsibility. Complains are not documented properly at all and everytime you have repeat the entire story again. There is no adherence to timelines.
Also, whenever i ask for the call ro be transferred to the supervisor or the floor manager, the response is always that no manager is available, you have to talk to me only. When i insist, then they will keep me on hold for min 20 mins and tyen transfer the call. The supervisor or floor manager has no idea what the issue is and you have to start the story all over again.

I'm srill awaiting a genuine response where someone will tell me which technician will come and when my complain will be resolved.

Compliant with regards Airtel DTH service

This is compliant with regards Airtel DTH service, Customer ID: 3000277677.

As per new guidelines from TRAI, I ensured that I changed the package and got a confirmation from Airtel DTH on 30th Jan 2019 since the TRAI deadline was on 31st Jan, this task was completed. Thereafter TRAI was implemented and my family was using DTH normally but on 6th Feb 2019 most of my channel displayed the error code: 04 except for a couple of sports channels, I called Airtel DTH customer care on 7th Feb morning and informed them and the agent Krishna mentioned that their systems are down and he was not able to see my details and not to worry this issue will be resolved in an hour. The issue was not fixed and I had to call the customer care numerous times but I reached the IVR mentioning that all lines are busy and requested to callback later, I tried the whole evening but had no luck to reach the customer care, the following day (8th Feb), I managed to get a hold of another customer care agent and she informed that the issue will be resolved soon and that their systems are down and he was not able to see my details, this was very frustrating and I requested her to arrange a callback because I was not able to contact customer care the previous day since the lines are continuously busy, she promised that “yes” she will do that, but that was just a fake promise and no one called. Again I called customer care towards the end of the day I spoke to Rahul he placed my call on numerous holds and I was confident that he will help, he asked me to restart the set-top box and check, but it still did not work this call carried on for almost 20mins and then he said to wait for another 10mins and this issue will be resolved, however, he also said that he has many more call to attend and I could wait offline. I believed him but the issue still persists, most of the channels are still blocked and I do not know what is the next best move.

I hope they call me back to fix it.

Not migrating as per TRAI

My DTH NO IS 3010483948 and requested through online for my choices which total comes less than 400 inclusive of all taxes but not yet implemented since Feb 1st as promised because my old package value is 555.
Airtel is crazy and creedy of money because anything comes more value in amount then they will initiate within a second at the same time any thing is lesser values are not bothered at all. I have send three request but till date nothing has happpened. Hence I am going to complain TRAI with all references regarding my revised choosen channels to up hold the consumer choice.

Worst customer service

I have shifted my home yesterday and requested for reinstallation of DTH. The technician was assigned yesterday afternoon and they were no response from him yesterday. I called back the customer care for allocation of another technician but they didn't respond back properly and I have been waiting all time with false hope. Such a worst customer service. No value for customer. They are not returning back my money also. Waste of choosing this network. I never recommend to any of my friends.

Problem with Sony Ten 1,2&3

I have changed my package having sports channels. However on live match day channels are not broadcasting properly. When I called on 1st day they issue is with the broadcaster, 2nd day they activated HAD channels for me to watch the match and deactivate the channels post live match. 3 Rd day they said issue with settings in DTH box so they will send engineer to fix the issue and I have to pay ₹150. as service charge. I wonder what is the actual issue. I suspect Airtel is trying to make fool of us to make money.

Cheating the customer

My Airtel Digital TV consumer number is 3011931312. This is regarding the set top box issue I would like to register my complaint.Recently in the month of July-2017 I replaced with new set top box.I paid Rs.400/- for that. Again today, 19-Dec-2017 the same set top box issue surfaced. I registered a complaint in the call center (service ref#. 67797418). I received a message from the call center and received a message there will be no service charge received for replacing the set top box. But the technician was charging for adapter which cost about Rs.200/- plus service charge Rs.150/- .So a total of Rs.350 I paid for the issue.I received the receipt (receipt #4201). Because of the technician fault (not fixing cable properly, not fixing connector properly) I had called him for service a couple of times for the past 3 months.For each visit I paid him Rs.150/-.
When I want to escalate the same to the call center, the people are simply asked me to wait and finally the call got disconnected. I fedup with this company and the people.
I want to register this as a complaint here.

DTH 3 months validity devali offer paid Rs.806, but today dth cut off the connection - reg ,

i am Valarmathi,i am using Airtel DTH connection and the acc No.3017603260, we received a information about the three month validity deepawali offer of Rs. 804/- from airtel telecaller,so we recharged the amount Rs. 806/- on OCT 2017. but on today 01/12/2017 the DTH connection was cut off. when we addressed this issue to your Airtel DTH service authority they did not give a correct and legit answer,they did not maintain their honour to their consumer and as far as we know also this practice is also against the Indian TRAI rules and regulation act. hence we hope we get the suitable remedy.Also,today we received a call from your telecaller through the land line no.044 44448080 and also were given the same information about three month offer of Rs. 804/- So we request you to take necessary action in this regard, and do the need full action and re connect the dth to me and do not lose the valuable customer.

Misguiding Airtel DTH Offers

Hi Sir/Madam,

I am currently facing worst Experience with Airtel DTH Customer Services.

Customer ID : 3012024172
NAME : Dora Velu Reddy Poluru

Please find the below Issues for last week :
1. The Back-end team of Aiterl DTH provided 6+6 Offer(Need to Recharge for 6 Months so will get Additional 6 Months of South Value Sports pack at free of Cost) on 30 or 31 March 2017.

2. Based on their Confirmation, I have recharged for 6+6 Offer. But My Account has been suspended on 21st Sep 2017 due to Insufficient Balance.

3. When i have raised a Complaint against this with Customer Support on 21st Sep 2017, they informed that they will check with backed team.

4. Everyday I am patiently calling Customer Support, they were resuming my Connection for 1 DAY and Suspended my Connection after 24 hours. This was happening for last 5 days.

5. Finally on 25th Sep 2017, I got Confirmation from One of the Supervisor that they will activate 6+6 months offer and Adjust my Account within 24 hours and I should not face the same Issue again. But on 26th morning again my connection got Suspended.

6. Please find the below Escalation and transaction IDs :
Escalation 1 : 65758791
Escalation 2 : 50806528
Escalation 3 : 50785488
Escalation 4 : 62752893

I have attended CALL with 4 Store Supervisors So far.I was calling every day for the resolution, please find the Interaction IDs:
1. 1048482350
2. 1048476537
3. 1048464259
4. 1048526924
5. 1048491460

7. It seems like giving fake Offers and Playing with the Customers is not good, It will impact Relationship between Customer and Airtel DTH.

If any Escalation Opened, It has to be resolve in maximum 24 hours, but for Last 1 week, I am running behind Customer Service to get Justice for the commitment given by Your team.

I am requesting you to take action against this Escalation and resume my Connection with 6+6 Offer which you have Committed earlier.

Bring animax back an easy way to get many grateful customers.

Its such a nostalgia when it comes to animax ,but you and every dth service have taken this away..
And also it could be added advantage for you guys since no other dth offer this channel and also there is increasing number of anime fans in india.. and generally anime fans are all little crazy about anime(im being one) and you could capitalise this and could get lot of very grateful customers... think about it...

Still its not cleared.

Request for a Disconnection one of my two connections


I am holding two Airtel DTH connection cust ID-3000095079, I raised a request for disconnection for one of my Airtel DTH on April 8th 2017 reference no-60043313 and CPE recovery ID-60112810 and no one turned up to my house to recover the disconnected for SD BOX, But the connection has been Suspended on the same day of the request and not working so I thought it as been disconnected from back end.
Then I came to know that the rental has been still shared to both the Digital TV connections and again I call to customer care and asked why the rental has been share for the disconnected TV and they told until the recovery of the SD box the rental will shared and request to kindly take the SD box and request to reverse the rental for charging to the suspended connection. But no use again they raised the ticket -60966100 and recovery ID 61035999 on 11th May 2017 and today is 15th May 2017.

For another 5 days gone still they taking the rental for both the connection. This clear shows How Airtel Makes money from customer without rendering service to them, if they cheat the customer. I will surely make them to feel in front of our Law.

Beware of these Thief.

Very Poor service


I have registered a request for service 20 days back. Till now no technician has turned up. I am not able to view any channels, signal problem. Everyday I am calling them but giving me false commitments. Till now issue has not been resolved. Is this the kind of treatment they give for a customer who is using their product for more than 6 yrs ??? Very disappointing.
