balance deduction


I have airtel mobile connection. Last one year they automatically on any of their value added service and start deducting money.

each time I have to call airtel service center to stop their value added service. initially they revert back the balance but now they are not reverting back the balance, they have only one answer SORRY. we can not reverrt back your balance.

Its a cheating with customer, if customer do not want buy service how can they sell.

I am not only customer. They are cheating many of customers.

Please take strong action against them.

automatic service activation

Myself Amitkumar and my no is 9975686855.
I am using aitel simcardfor about 2 yrs, and since air tel is deducting my account balance by activating unwanted services.
Recently they deducted Rs.50 from my account for the same. When i asked customer care executive for the same,he exlained me using their fake logs as i am not using that sim card daily. I use that sim card rarely in emergency situations only when my 1st sim balance is 0.
I am facing this problem eversinc i bought this sim. Also there are many people who are facing the same problem. I wish they should be punished for the same as they do it intentionally for their profit.
Thanks and regards.

DSL Number# 020-41284196. I am getting call to pay my next 6th month advance pay to continue my Airtel Broadband Connection which I already requested to disconnect/cancel in the month of March - 2011. Now, when I ask them to Cancel the same, they said that it is already renewed and cannot be disconnected/cancel no matter if I use it or not.
I don't understand why do I pay for next 6th month if I don't want to use it. I am ready to pay any outstanding bill for my previous internet usage.

Please help !!!

DTH Service

My customer ID: 3000038612.

Complaint No: 7045471 for STB problems &

Complaint No:6733229 for No Signal (error code B001)

I brought HD multi connection 4 months back n since last 2 months I am faceing probles regarding the

1) No signal as well as the


Despite many requests and customer executives & Supervisors (Sachin Singh last talked to) false promises it got delayed a lot and we had to suffer lot of mental torture calling them several times as if we had no other work to do. No engineer has come till date to my place.I have registered for this at least 5-6 times. Every time I just receive a msg saying the service request no is ----.I dont get any engineer's number from customer care where i can call up and resolve my problem.
Everytime sms comes that reqquest is resolved...Who resolved it. Did they confirm from me? Then why is my complaint closed without resolving it.
Please specify if they dont want to solve it.
Even today when i called the customer care i requested that cant i talk to the senior most person at the call center they just put me on hold for nearly 25 mins...what the hell!!!
Dont we have other things to do.............
If customer care Dept. has any shame please give me the details why this issue is still unsolved till date.

If the service agents cant work for free service for 1 year i am ready to pay you people Rs. 100 as donation.

Last two days back I got a no: of Mr. Rao 022 40213261 either its not working or it doesn't exists.
I am paying Rs 520 a month for ultra Pack & i am not able to see movie channels as well as some imp news channels.
Who is going to compensate on that. The Service Dept. owe me an explanation on that.
I have given several complains of this issue but it is not paid heed to, this is really annoying.

Mr Customer care executives just dont care about customers and give blank replies.A limit is crossed now.
I want the airtel head office number or any top bosses number to show them the reality in a city like pune where no airtel service engineer available in prime area like Kondhwa which can solve a small remote issue.

Shame on Airtel!!!!!!!!!!!

Harrassment of bil payments after connection has been terminated

Dear Consumer Complaints forum,

I was previously living in Pune uptil August 2010 and duly cancelled my Airtel broadband and home phone connection - all outstanding bills were paid and the equipment was returned to Airtel. I have since moved out of Pune to another city and Airtel constanly call me asking to pay them for monthly bills for a connection that does not exist! It has been over 8 months now and it has reached a point of harrassment where we are constantly bombarded with calls and threatened. Kindly help

Final bill for 9665098068

Despite numerous reminders and feedback to Airtel call center staff, this is yet to happen. Can you help drive some sanity in Airtel so that instead os wasting time on calling me disturbing constantly, they just send me a bill at [email protected]

Spam from Airtel Live

Background on the issue:

1. On 6th april, 12.24 PM, I got a message that I have been subscribed to Gamesclubsubscription service from Airtel live <54321>.
2. I got two more messages the following day 7th april and 8th april at 1.31 and 2.06 PM respectively.
3. I get a message that some game has been downloaded and 75 Rs were deducted. There is no physical file/app of the game.
4. I got subscribed to a cricket service a while later and got a message from airtel live.

I called the Supervisor and he verified that I had browsed through my gprs connection to a site called wap.mauj.com and registered to the Games subscription service, which somehow got automatically done. Nor did I have any downloaded game nor do i acknowledge going to that site manually.. He reimbursed 85 rs into my account and advised me to disable any settings in my messaging applicaiton which auto opened any push service messages. I found no such option on my samsung galaxy S android phone.

To investigate further, I opened one of the android apps and clicked on an advertisement and it redirected me to website which I found is airtel live webpage, where I could see that no services or subscriptions are registered. However that ad that i had clicked led to a deduction of 50 Rs downloading a game again with no physical application file downloaded on my phone.
Note that I have deleted airtel live and airtel mms APNs on my mobile since I have switched to Prepaid almost a year ago and never had I faced such harassment.

Later at 10.30 pm on 8th april I get a message saying that I am not registered on DND and every 20 minutes thereon I got a Push message for Airtel Live WAP Cricket subscription. I strongly suspect some foul play with Airtel trying to push the airtel live messages deliberately.

and thats it staying loyal to Airtel for 4 years comes to an end.

prepaid service activation without request

I hold a lifetime prepaid sim card from airtel and the number is 970428086. It happens that after some time airtel activates some of the value added services on my SIM without my knowledge to eat my prepaid balance. I come to know about this when i see a sufficient balance in my account. This has happened 3 times with me. Whenever i call customer service for this they say that they can block the service now but won't repay whatever amount has been deducted for that service. I am fed up with airtel . I feel this as a serious case of fraud being done by airtel with its lifetime prepaid customers.

Billing errors by airtel

Respected Sir,

I had been using Airtel broadband connection for my internet accessibility purpose. I had decided to relocate to a different City and had asked Airtel Customer Care to log a request for relocation of the connection on the 25th January 2011. On 27th January, 2011 I received a call from the Airtel representative specifying that Airtel would not be able to able to provide the connection at my requested new address. I was in this case would I want to disconnect or keedp the connection as it is at the current address. I had asked the person to disconnect the same.

Till date the connection has not been disconnected and the bill's are still getting generated on my name. The original bill amount was suppose to be Rs. 991.00 from which it has now jumped to about Rs. 3000.00 Inspite of me making repeted complaints. Kindly help me in this regard

Details are as follow
