Airtel Mobile Customer Care ( Appellate Authority )



  • edited May 2013
    Dear Sir/Ma'am,

    I am so pissed off with Airtel right now that I just want to go to court and sue the company for the harassment that I am made to suffer.

    It all started in nov 2012 when out of nowhere I started getting messages from Airtel on my phone (9893126178) that I have exceeded my credit limit. My monthly bills are typically in the range of 400 to 600/- with one odd month when it would jump to say Rs 1000/- and that's because I would be on roaming. So all this is understandable and my credit limit is Rs 2500/-. So I ignored the first message as some spam message as I would have never even in my dreams thought that my phone bill would cross 2500/-. When couple of days later I again got the message, then I decided to find out from customer care and so I called up. I was told on 24th nov (complaint #47215093) that the high bill is because of internet usage. I argued with the CC guy that when I never activated internet connection on my phone, how could there be internet on my phone and from where is Airtel billing me for the same? He alleged that I had activated it on 5th of June 2012 about 3.5 months ago. I told him that this is false. I never activated internet. I don't remember if I explicitly asked him to deactivate internet but I was taken aback to get another message couple of days later about exceeding the credit limit. I called up again on 29th Nov (complaint# 47310083) and came to know that the internet was still running. I said what stupidity. When I told him that I never activated internet, why the hell he didn't stop then? I got the internet deactivated there and then and then I started my questioning and investigation of why in the first place internet was started on my phone? I was given all stupid reason by the customer care (4-5 times), nodal officer (2 times) and Appellate officer (once on phone and multiple email exchanges). They say that it was a smartphone bundle offer. I had purchased Samsung galaxy S (I 9000) and it came along with that. I clarified to them that that phone was purchased in 2011 and not anytime around the date when internet was activated on my phone. Then they told me that I must have inserted my airtel SIM in that phone. Their system activates internet automatically on a post paid phone and the offer had first month free and 10p/10kb plan henceforth. For your information I had activated internet on my I9000 phone from airtel for one month in May. It was a Rs 98 plan for 1 GB data which I deactivated by the end of May. 10p/10kb is zero rental plan but it is one of their costliest plans. My questions to them after hearing all this were: Whom did you ask before putting me on such an expensive plan? If internet is readily available in a post paid plan then why I had to activate internet on my phone in May month? That was not the first time airtel SIM was inserted in that phone, then from where did the bundle offer show up? Why it didn't show up earlier? They have no answers to any of these questions. They just talk about the bill. They blocked the outgoing from the phone on 18th Feb 2013. I then moved to another number and on 1st March I formally asked them to deactivate the number. In my multiple email exchanges with appellate body of Airtel, I keep asking them how and when I gave my "explicit consent" to start internet on my phone and they keep saying the same thing that a message was sent a month after the alleged activation date of internet on my phone i.e. 5th July 2012 that from now on internet usage will be charged. I keep getting spam messages on my phone and must have thought of that message as another spam. After all when I never activated internet on my phone, where is the question of free or paid usage or billing. As per them, 1st month was free. Am I a fool that when it was free I didn't use it? And I didn't use it for close to 4 months and suddenly the usage was so high that they generated a bill of Rs 2500/-. And this 2500/- bill was against how much data usage? You can calculate it for urself at the rate of 10p/10kb. For usage of 250MB of data at stupid 2G speed. I am now on Idea and there the 3G speed is charged at 3p/10Kb. In the month of may, when I wanted to activate data plan on my phone, I enquired about their plans. They have 3 plans and the one that they allegedly activated on my phone is the costliest one. I used their 1GB data plan for Rs 98 for one month. Do they think I am a fool that I would pay in thousands for their stupid 2G speed?

    And now they have started threatening me saying that they are filing case against me. I also told the advocate who called me that you and Airtel are lucky that I am a lazybone, that I didn't file a complaint until now. But by filing a complaint, you will help me. Please go ahead and do that. That's what I wanted to do but haven't been able to do it now. What is funny is that they will file the complaint in Delhi court. I said why. When I am here, your executives who fraudulently activated internet are here, what point does it make to file the case in Delhi? Anyways, I am in for this legal battle as I feel that Airtel is big time into cheating. Is it a mere coincidence that in last 7 yrs since I was using Airtel, there was never ever internet related issue and then once I activated internet in May, the very next month they activated internet on their own on some different pretext. Doesn't it clearly show how they make specific people their targets.

    I am not sure how you can help but if you can show me the proof that I clearly requested for internet connection then I will pay the dues else please please please ASK AIRTEL TO STOP SUCH PRACTICE.

    I'm sorry to say that a corporate like Airtel how come they trouble and cheat the customers and its my surprise and most disgusting experience with Airtel as below.

    I've taken one repaid connection for my daughter @ 8197128783 to use international roaming during her recent trip to US as she got selected for NASA educational trip during this summer.

    When I was looking for a best international roaming package for her I found a summer bonanza pack on Airtel website then immediately opted for Rs.1479/- by paying through credit card on 18.005.2013.Surprisingly the talk time has come on to the account but calls being charged on their standard plan of incoming Rs.100/- and outgoing Rs.150/-.Made many calls to the customer care @121 but absolutely no response from Airtel. After calling more than 7 times then finally they could register a complaint @ 3052155514600 but till date no response

    As the standard package was costing hell then again I opted for supercharge package of Rs.1749/- as per below offer.Again the same story but this time neither the talk time nor the special package got activated.121 post paid helpline team doesn't have any product knowledge and every time I offers to speak to their team leaders the the story remains same.I never expected a corporate like Airtel will have such a pathetic call Center of customer care operations.

    If Airtel is not responding this mail n resolving the issue within in next 12 hours I forced to call the media and would go legally to take it up with next level.

    Dear AirTel Team,

    My AirTel mobile # is 9892515015. Since the past 10 days I am facing issues with the data (GPRS) connectivity at my workplace in Chandivali (Chandivali Farm Road Area). I spoke to your customer service 4 times, yet the problem still persists.

    Kindly check if there is some issue with the network / tower / system breakdown etc. as I'm sure this has got to do something with it. I'm saying so because I never had this issue until 10 days earlier.

    Moreover, I have a few more colleagues who are complaining about the same. So its nothing to do with my mobile phone (as one of your customer service officer actually asked me to check my phone settings). I still went ahead and re-installed the settings. But it didn't help.

    Kindly look into this with highest priority as this is really annoying & inconvenient.

    L Dsouza.

    Respected sir,

    I am a retrailer of Airtel. My personal prepaid number is 7384260217(normal sim). On 7th, 8th and 9th July, 2013 I saw an offer (Recharge with Rs.30 and get Rs,40) by dialing *121#. On 7th and 8th July I recharged my number with Rs.30/- and got Rs.23.70/- instant and also had gotten Rs.16.30/- after some hours. So checking special offers (*121#) I recharged my number with same amount for four times and had gotten 23.7x4=Rs.94.8/- instant, but till now I have not gotten remaining 16.3x4=Rs.65.2/-. On 10th July I called customer care, they informed me that you would get that Rs.65.2/- before 6pm of 11th July. But I did not get any amount, so I called again. That time one of superviser informed me that I was not eligble for that offer. Then I called on 12144, here an exucutive informed me that the remaining Rs.65.2/- would be credited within 11:59pm of 11th July (complain no. 177625802). But till now I have not gotten that money.
    I want to mention one thing , that some of exucutive were informing that my offer was changed from 10th July, so I would not get that money. But I want to say that rule was if I recharged on offer’s day, then I will get the benefit. So I recharged on that offer’s day and I should get the benefit. If the offer is changed from the next day, that is not my fault. If all of exucutive informed that I was not eligible, then I would thing that something was wrong.
    I hope that you will give me the right feedback and arrange to credit my account with that remaining Rs.65.2/-. My another contact number is 8641807078.

    My experience with the Airtel customer care has been really horrible. Its all good until you have to approach customer care for anything. I was trying to get a 3G data card activated for the past 2+ weeks. This is after submitting all the required documentation that was prescribed by the dealer ( this is an airtel only dealer). The promise was that in 48 hrs max this will be activated, and here I am sitting with an inactive connection even after 16 days. The address verification and other formalities were completed the very next day itself. From the 4th day of purchase, I am in touch with the dealer. No response other than "give me one more day to get it activated". To top it up this is one among the most rude and unprofessional dealership that I have seen of any service provider - I'd like to think of it as a one off. Next is the ordeal with 121 customer care, these are folks who speak at 100 km/hr speed and least bothered if the listener is even able to understand what they are trying to convey. Moreover these are folks who have mugged up some functions like, hello tunes, prepaid - postpaid conversion, best plan to choose etc etc. Anythign outside this arena, they are clueless and offer no update. By mistake one of the 121 executives told me about the nodal desk. At least from the 2nd week I started speaking with the nodal desk. Have been dealing with the nodal desk for a total of 7 days. They had asked a window of 72 hours for activation, by the end of which upon probbing them indirectly I came to know that the number allocated to me got assigned to some one else. I am back to square one. Another 72 hour window of wait starts once again to get another number activated for me. By the end of that, surprise !!!! My connection is not yet activated. Call to Apelate Authority to get this sorted. Not only I am getting any response, i am being prescribed another window of 48 hours. Though the communication style has improved from 121 customer case, the information contained is still Zero. I only have the follwoing basic questions to ask (1) What went wrong with my request, was it a slip from my end or is it a technical issue at your end or a regulatory hurdle or something else (2) Do we have a time line when you think my connection will be activated (3) What are my prospects of getting a refund since the connection is still not active even after 16 days after purchase. The blanket reponse to all the above questions is "Sir, we are trying to get the connection activated asap, please hold on for some more time". At no point in time I am allowed to register this as a complaint since my connection is not activated - Failing to activate the service does not seem to be a complaint at all in Airtel's dictionary. I was even advised to make call to some tele verification number using the inactive SIM. Don't know if Airtel thinks their tele verification number is listed as an emergency number to which you can call without getting registered to a network!!!. Anyways - I am still here sitting with the inactive connection. I have lost hope with the customer care service with Airtel - given the way the Apelete Authority representative is speaking. This is what i have noticed across top to bottom in the customer care network - right from the dealer to the Apellete Authority.

    (1) Nobody is interesting in registering the complaint - either there is no mechanism in place or they are conveniently avoiding it to make the stats look good. This is making me explain the whole story to each and every executive - I would have told the story 10-15 times altogether in my interaction with the customer care.
    (2) Nobody calls you back as per the promise to call back with an update - I would have spent hours on calls with the nodal desk and Apelete Authority.
    (3) Each complaint is just a call to these folks and I do not see a follow up action being taken on the concern raised, It appears as if the complaint is being looked into only when the user is calling again as a follow up.
    (4) The only saving grace is that at least with the Apelete Authority you get to speak to one executive if the call is made within the same day. But that serves no use, different from the name this body seems to be nothing more than a glorified call centre. No powers to escalate or speed up anything within the system. Just a stunt to pacify the customer and give him false hopes that his problem is being looked into.
    (5) Nobody seems to know or pretends not to know what actually went worng with my case. No root cause analysis or at least a simple "how did it end up like this" kind of curiosity is not seen anywhere
    (6) No clue as to when the issue can get resolved - Later on I understood that the 72 hrs, 48 hrs is all a wild guess they make - they have no clue as to what all process will have to cmplete before the issue can get fixed. What more, they couldn't even tell me the steps I have to go through my connection getting activated and where am I standing at the moment.

    I have lost hope in these guys - will probably look towards another provider - though I am not sure if it is going to be even worse.
    I am not going to approach these guys again.. this is leaving me thinking is there any responsible body in Airtel that can take customer complaints seriously. Even the Apelate Authority which is supposed to be the highest forum where a customer can register his concern has proved useless inmy case - so what next, email to the CEO of Airtel?

    I am writing to you after exhausting all possibilities including trying to get in touch over the phone but i ll still try to get a response before taking any extreme measures so that court doesn't say you didn't write to the nodal head

    Explaining the case:
    I received several calls from airtel Convincing me to shift from pre-paid to post paid,i finally made the horrible choice of authorization the associate to carry on the transfer.He told me that a person would come over and take a fee of 250 rupees and the necessary documents and give me a sim card.i asked for a nano sim.the guy came and did his job and gave me a micro sim and told me to get it cut from apple.i did that,the whole verification process took one week.understandable,i had no problem.After that i got a message on my existing prepaid sim asking me to switch to the post paid sim.I did that last saturday,my sim did not work,i called up 121 and after going through rigorous explaining regimes to various people i was told that they cant help and i should visit the closest airtel problem i did that.On going there it i was sent back to get the packaging of the sim card so that they could verify the sim number, provided the same in one hour.They told me (airtel office ,F-5,east of kailash) that the sim and the sim number dont match and the person who gave me the sim made a mistake and its my fault i didnt take the airtel guy's personal number anyways they did me "favor" by sending a email and asked to come back next week i.e monday,today i went and i was told they cant do anything and that it is franchise and i should go find another airtel office.
    exact words were"diwaar pe nodal officer ka number hai,udhar baat karo"

    now sir i write to you because this number is my business number ,and i have suffered alot already because of this change.i have great hopes from you i am currently using my old punjab number and paying roaming with no fault of mine,you can contact me on 09815808338

    I subscribed for a airtel 4 G connection on the 27th of Jan'14 and later on 30th the connection was active.

    However i was unable to use the data card since the connection was getting disconnected.

    On 3rd feb i logged a complaint and the engineer visited my place only on 7th feb.

    He took the data card stating he will get it rectified however has not returned till today i.e. 11th Feb.

    I have called several times to the customer, called Appellate on 7th feb, one Imran answered the call and infored he will resolve the issue, but for vain.

    A person Vini (team lead) answered the call on 7th and informed that she will take care of the issue but no call till date.

    A person Jayant called on 8th and informed he will send the person on 11th but no call back and when i call the number the same is switched off...

    Its traumatic, i dont have the data card with me and it take Airtel more then 15 days to resovle a simple issue.

    Please look into the issue and ensure that the data card connection is disconnected and my money is refunded.

    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    I do not understand how many times do I need to send the bank statements and
    transaction reference codes for the payments done. I already have shared the
    same more than twice. Please find attached the same one more time.

    I have called several times the customer care about the issue I am facing in
    regards to the payment credited to wrong phone number and every time I am given
    the assurance that I shall get the CALL back for the same and the Issue shall
    get resolved. This time-pass is happening from the last 2-3 months.

    What should be my reaction, please understand that. My business is getting a
    hit because of this nuisance.

    Your prompt resolution is required.

    Dear Sir,

    I am following up for the complaint from almost 1 month regarding payment to
    wrong account and also getting assurances everytime that the issue will be
    resolved but like always my phone line has been disconnected even after my
    complaint 3 days back (even I was assured that I shall receive a call back but
    nobody called) today my incoming and outgoing have been debarred.

    Do I need to consumer forum for such irresponsible behaviour from Airtel
    Company or its officials???

    I booked a new postpaid number 8-10 days back. After verification nothing happened for next couple of days. We have been chasing the sales guys but no benefit. I went to the Airtel relationship center in Jaipuria Mall, Indirapuram and they booked a number for me 8130393900 and after verification when I checked with them again after 2-3 days, they say that the number has been given to someone else. You can take other number..

    So I asked will there be verification again. They said yes. I was frustrated that when I need a new number now and still I have to wait for a few more days. Still I thought its ok so I selected a new number 9958553554 today in the morning from the Indirapuram (Jaipuria Mall) center of Airtel.

    Till evening I have been chasing them to go for verification, they continuously said we are sending. But at around 6 PM I got to know from the airtel store that the new number which I chose 9958553554 has also been blocked by someone else. Then I went to the store directly and asked for a new number. I waited there for an hour but they could not offer me a number.

    Its been more than 10 days but a new number has not been given to me. Its a very bad service on your part.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I was using the airtel postpaid no. 9805045135 for a long time, bcz of some reasons i want to convert the no. postpaid to prepaid , for this I paid the full & final payment before three months and also submitted all the documents and passport size photo , i was in touch with the airtel office attendent to whom i paid the payment she always answer me it will take 3-4 days, one week , 2 days but three month paased but the no. was not converted, and they were every month sending me the bill. But i was not satisfied with the service and stopped using the no. and then now before few days Mr. Rajkumar ( Airtel baddi office) called me and asking for the payment of bill. I told him all the matter and he assured me to convert the no. after full payment then i again make the full payment 2965/- on 27/2/2014 and submitted all the documents and photo. as per the mail sent by mr. rajkumar the postpaid no. is dissconnected but the no. not converted into prepaid. Then i sent him mail and he said plz call 59059 and your no. will be activated. I called this no. 3 days but they are saying that there is no information loaded into the system plz call after 4 hours , i again called them after four hours they again said me the same thing. in the end again i disscused with mr. Rajkumar he said you have to come to the office, then i went the airtel office ( Baddi) now they are not responding positively and thati observed with their way of talking , my issue is just a joke for them, everybdy laughing on me. & said give your documents again . I fail to understand that how many times i need to give the documents and why everytime i beg them why should not airtel staff do their job and work properly.
    its clearly showing that airtel staff is making fool of the peoples and wasteing their time and drawing the salary for just pass the time.

    Now i want to get my no.activated in prepaid without submitt any further document. You are requested to please do the needfull to help me.

    Dear Sir,

    This is to inform you in spite of the repeated reminder sent to the Air tel Office in Samthome for removal of Airtel box in the above Naidu Street , Kottur, Chennai-600085 for the last six months nothing has happened. Even the Chennai Corporation tried and discussed with the concerned authority for removal but in vain. Due to the Airtel box our could not be parked and also nuisance are created by the public and urination is taking place during night time.

    Hence I request you kindly to look into this subject and please take action immediately for removal. You may also contact Mr.A.Suresh-Cell No.9841030556 for further information.

    Happy Afternoon Sir,

    Please read this mail in FULL.

    I'm an unfortunate customer of AIRTEL for a very LoooooooooooooooooooooooooooonG time ( more than a decade).

    Since 2012 , I've have making my payments regularly for all these years, BUT for the last 50 months, I have been facing a lot of problems with your billing department. I've written almost 20 to 30 mails, made 1000's of calls, visited your Santhome Office in person, with all relevant details of my payments , bank statements,.But to my disbelief and horror, the tragedy and harassment continues from your end.

    I'm making this last effort to resolve issues with a belief, that there may be a last hope of resolution for my billing issue.Please understand I will not be making a false claim for a few hundred rupees.

    I've have two numbers , 9003281222 & 9500076963.

    I've been making the payments for the both these numbers for their respective bills in a single cheque, and at the back of the cheques I write both the numbers and their respective bill amount totalling to that cheque.

    On two occasions, I find that your staff who does the DATA ENTRY of these cheques, ( who I believe is incompetent for this job) credits (first )one number while they conveniently forget the (second )other number. And begin to claim payment for the (second ) other bill ( number ) which they have failed to enter.

    While they accept payment for one bill what happens to the balance amount of that payment..( let them provide the details of the paid bill - then I shall explain the payment for the unpaid bill as they claim. )

    i suggest that if you have a will to resolve this issue, please take all the last 50 bills till date , and correlate it with all my payments, you will be able find that I have made all my payments (but for the latest bills ) and the harassment will stop.

    If you do not have the manpower, please let me know, I shall bring all my bills and all my payment details for the corresponding period, and submit to the concerned accounting staff ( Audit dept). in person.


    I have no other option but to go to the Consumer Court and resolve my issue and claim my relevant Damages.

    This is my last effort and sincerely believe that there will be some staff in your Organisation who will have the common sense and understand this issue and and help me. Please restore my my other number 9500076963 - unconditionally (but for the latest bill), with immediate effect.

    For Shree Krishna Pharmaceutical Distributors
