Wrong deduction of balance by the airtel mobile service provider

Dear Sir
I am a subscriber of a Air tel and my mobile number is 9831759772 and I had received a massage from 543211 and6780 on 02.12.2010 stating that the collar tune has been set in my mobile and for this reason Rs 10/- has been deducted but I never opted for any caller tune. After I received the same I tried to call the customer care center of airtel for lodging my complain but unfortunately instead of my several try I could not connect the customer care and the automatic voice caller after informing that the customer care executive is being connected and disconnected the phone about 4 times.

I am not at all interested to have any caller tune in my said number and neither I had opted for it, please arrange to refund my money which has been wrongly deducted from my main balance.
please see the matter as it is a seriour complain and wrong way to earn money by the service provider.

With advance thanks for refunding my wrongly deducted money from my main balance

Committing for balance if re submitting the documents for the same old connection.

I have received a message from Airtel Customer service stating that if I re submit my documents in the Airtel Store for my prepaid sim for the number +91 97489 36744 , then I’ll receive talk time worth Rs. 110. Even when I submitted the documents the airtel store's Manager at Salt Lake City Centre's Office told me that it will be given to me shortly. After few days when I called up airtel customer service on they again told me that we have processed your request it will be given to you soon. But after roughly two months when I again called up the customer service on 16/12/2010 Thursday in between 9.10Am To 9.30Am the hanged up the phone on my face twice since they didn't had any answer.

Deduct extra money for Net Surfing


I had activated the daily rental 10 Rs per day internet(100 MB Max) on 17th July, 2010 in my mobile to connect through laptop. My mobile no is: 9163927207
While I was surfing net, around 89 Rs were deducted from my account. So I called the customer care and told them about the situation. They told me that this problem would get resolve by 6:00 PM on 20th July. But neither I got any confirmation call from them nor my money back so I called them again on 20th July. Now they are telling that the deducted amount was correct because I surfed the net through 'Airtel Live'. I told them that I am damn sure that I have only accessed the net through my laptop and no one can access the internet from laptop/PC through 'Airtel Live'. Internet can only get connected through 'Mobile Office' from Laptop/PC. Additionaly the customer care guy was telling me that do whatever you want to do but we will not return your money back. So I told them that I will go to the consumer court and complaint against your organization.

Please look into this matter. The amount which got deducted is not too much but I want to learn them a lesson, so please help me.

Thanks & Regards,

Incorrect/Excess bill

My Airtel no : 9874670006 (a/c no ############) and having problem since I took the connection.
Within 4 days STD facility was withdrawn as the outstanding bill crossed the credit limit i.e. even before making any STD calls.
In the first months bill (bill period 11 July 2008 to 10 Aug 2008) it shown Rs 1107/- as outstanding.
Connect taken on 14th July 2008
Connection activated 15th July 2008
Customer verification by Airtel on 17th July 2008.
Despite repeated reminder/followup with Airtel representatives Airtel did not pay any attention to rectifying the bill and still asking for the money.
I had no choice but to discontinue the connection.
Few weeks back Airtel Initiated petition for Lok Adalat for the same (P.L. Case No. 16357 of 2010). Hon'ble Judges rejected the case as the bills provided by Airtel incorrect and inappropriate. Airtel representative present also agreed that the bill is incorrect.
The Lok Adalat process initiated by Mr. Himadri Chakraborty([email protected]) and Mr. Chandrasekhar Sarkar (advocate).
Again Mr Chandrasekhar Sarkar sending letters that you've failed to settle the matter in Lok Adalat and still want to pursue legal action. Mr Sarkar or Airtel did not even bother to rectify the bills from their end.
Please advice whether I should approach to consumer court.
