After this my wife went to the Airtel counter which is in Kumarswamy layout ,Bangalore 560078 and paid the bill amount the details are as follows ::

New Broadband connection

I have requested for a new broadband connection on Feb 9, 2013 via airtel.in website. A person named Suthagar from airtel called up on the request and visited the house after 5 days on Feb 14, 2013 and took Rs.500/- as advance for installation. He promised us to finish the installation by Feb 16th. It has been more than 5 days since the promised date, but we have not seen any progress with the request. When called him, he kept promising, the connection would be available the next day failing which he would return the money back to us. But, till today nobody has visited the house to setup the connection nor responding properly over phone as well. This is really painful to go behind them everyday for no action.
Ironically, we received a msg today saying, "The connection has been setup along with user details", which is ridiculous.

I would like to take necessary actions immediately on the concerned person and the team who is responsible for this and am expecting immediate refund of my money.

Thanks in advance,

Harassment for a disconnected number

I have received a legal notice from Airtel today for the outstanding on my moblie number. Compaint against Bharti Airtel for not disconnecting the post paid phone number 9900174400 inspite of repeated requests for disconnection first in july 2012 and then repeatedly during conversations with all the customer care and emails and now has sent me a legal notice for the outstanding amount (which is only the rentals). Had also sent them an email on 11th Nov 2012 for the same, however there has been no response.

There have been repeated communication with numerous representatives includind someone named Angel, informing that I have instructed by calling up the call centre repeatedly and also giving in a written application for closure of this number at the time of the final setellement done the last time of an amount of 9998. Airtel complaint number 446325 and many more !!!!!!!!!!!!!

However, post that the number has been kept active and rentals are being chared to me on this. The number has not been in use or rather was discontinued due to a major issue on the bill amount. Post the payment the number was reactivated without my permission which is not acceptable.

I am been harrassed enough with respect to this number and have also sent a notice to the Airtel legal cell, inspite of which Airtel continues to keep the number active and charge me the rentals for this.

Leased Line

Airtel Leased Line Account number : 19433473
Speed : 2MBPS .
Annual charges : 1.3 Lakh

The service is down from morning and we are tired of calling
Mr.Vinod : 9686689253 ( the person who said they are rectifying in the morning and afternoon is not receiving the calls )
shashi : 9686818677 ( number not reachable )
Jose : 9686656026 He is a manager. its a shame to his designation ... He is cooly saying it can take 4 hrs to 2 days. He does not even have common sense of what leased line is and its importance.
So sick of airtel and its service, they have kept me on hold for 26min and 25 Sec and it is still running... Is there any responsible person in airtel who can solve the issue.
