Consumer complaints and reviews about Airtel

Not taking complain over call and solving issue

I don't have a complaint no coz executive denied to take my complaint over the phone. 

This is regarding 3 issues but mostly the executive not able to resolve issue and denying to take complain over call:

I have called them for 2 issue but for the second issue for the Internet connectivity issue and not able to take call other than going to balcony the resolution from the Customer care executive name is Abhijit claiming as Supervisor said they can't take any complaint over the phone.I need to have wifi or hotspot from another person else they can't register the complaint over the phone coz i have a smart phone. I told him I don't have data connectivity now he is telling me to connect to wifi or hotspot. Isn't it funny what he is talking about. Should I go and buy wifi to get another connection to resolve my airtel issue? If I am on the road then airtel expects I need to find a wifi zone to solve my problem. Is this what airtel is saying to resolve the issue ?

The customer care executive dont want to solve any issue and I am really surprised why they are there when our issue is not answered and airtel is claiming in TV ads you will get 0 customer issue, isn't it really funny . Requesting them to solve the small issues of the customer before talking big things.

Also he is saying you can send mail to whomever if they want to take action they will take even after talking so much he is so confident that nothing will be happening to him coz they also would have seen customer complains and no action taken from airtel and they don't care what customer tells or complain.I am not sure why I am writing the big mail when I know there will be no resolution coz AIRTEL NOT CARE FOR THEIR CUSTOMER.

Not sure if the things heard. Coz I lost my patience over the phone itself when the executive arguing without any proof and they don't have any proof to show or send.Also he is saying he is not lying so obviously he is saying as a customer we are lying, very nice answers, also saying I am not saying you are putting words on my mouth really gr8 talk I had with airtel executive. He is not answering , saying nonsense things and I am putting words on his mouth. Really I can say airtel have given nice training to executives how to abuse customers politely. Hats off. I think other service provider should also learn from Airtel.

Long mail hope I get some resolution
1. Want the complaint should be registered 
2. take action on the executive who talk nonsense to customer. I would have not been rigid if your executive did not argue to show off he doesn't care about what I am telling and it's a joke for him.

If you are denied a customer complaint over the phone then I don't know what these airtel ppl are eligible for. Please stop the ads saying you care what the customer expects.

No installation of broadband or return amount

The airtel customer agent asked me to pay the money for airtel broadband through the secured link. But it never got installed or even my money is not returned. Even though I'm calling the agent Sanjana +917204095011 many times. She's not responding. And other person who was responsible name Satish 9902555371 is also not responding to any messages or calls.

Hi, it has been 6 days since the airtel guy verified my documents for broadband connection and the payment has already been made on the same day but till now my broadband connection has not yet been set up. I tried calling customer care but they never pickup the call. Once a guy picked up and told that the connection will be set soon. However, till today, my connection has not been set up. They charged me on the same day when I placed a request for broadband connection but it has been about a week since they verified my documents and took my money but didn't give me an internet connection. Please help me as I am a student and without internet facility I am unable to attend my classes.

Friend locator service revoked


I had subscription to Airtel friend locator service since several years on my mobile phone number 9980788433.
Now when I tried using it doesn't work and is asking for new subscriptions which is 10 times more cost then what it previously was.
I called up customer service and he initially had no clue of what he was speaking. Later he said this service has been stopped for all customers. There is no more locator service.
I never received any communication about deactivating the service and now I still see the service is available but we need to avail it with 10x cost.
Very disappointing way of managing customer.

Porting issue

I have ported out from jio for two connections to Airtel. They have asked to insert new sim and activate which I did. Now no signal in both the phones. Not sure when they are going to fix it. Irritating to the core pathetic customer service

Termination of service not reflected anywhere, still receiving monthly bills

Connection no.:080-42153428 (broadband 080-61428636_kk)
A/c no.:7006608583
I have terminated the service in September-19, but still getting bills for payment.
Getting the service terminated itself was not easy and I have not been given any acknowledgement.
They have not updated their database.

They have to officially STOP the service from 11.09.2019 and stop sending further bills

with regards

Network issues

I have been using Airtel for fast many years. Airtel says it is the best network and from for past few years i can say "Airtel is best at downgrading the standards". I have been raising complaints once or twice for every month from past 2 years. No action has been taken to resolve the issue for 2+ years. By this you can understand how this service provider treats their customers.
Airtel competes to troll JIO on 6p/m but it doesn't even care how JIO is able to provide better network coverage (Indoor and Outdoor) better and data speed also. I feel Airtel is forcing us to change into JIO.
As it used to claim "India's Best network", i wold suggest Airtel to start advertise itself as "India's Worst network ever". Or else we have to start this campaign #BoycottAirtel.

Out of service for 48 hours and Data reduction

I would like to make a complaint as there is no resolution for this complaint yet. There is no response from [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]

1) I would like to know why was my Postpaid number was out of service for 48 hours on 8th and 9th September.
2) I had to bare communication loss with my bank, I was not able to log in to my work laptop as I needed the access to “VIP Application” installed in my phone which needs network(this caused me loss of Work for 1 day).
3) Before 8th of September I had a role over data of 374 GB. After the out of service that happened on 8th and 9th September it has come down to 75 GB. Can you advise what is happening?

Network Issues/Harrasment

Hi, I have been with Airtel for the last 12 to 14 years and my number is 990333754. I have been facing severe call drops and data issues eschpeially at home and enrage my office. I have many incidences of important business calls dropped. I have raised multiple complaints with 121 and all they have to say is there is a new tower coming up and the Airtel app which has a link to check speed has been showing a new tower coming up soon near my residence for the last over a year. I have a family plan of 1599 and I am responsible to make payments. In my recent complaint on the above issue I have categorically mentioned that am not willing to make payment till the issue is resolved and the issue still persists. Airtel is harassing my kid and my father who are part of the family plan with constant automated calls for payments which they are not responsible as I am the primary account holder for the plan. This is harassment of my kid who is 12 years old and he keeps asking my Pappa why can't you make the payment and do you have money. This is ridiculous that Airtel can fall so cheap in the competition to just survive. I wish either the get their services to the level that I have always known them for or just closed down.
