Return my talk time Balance Rs.50/- - Airtel

Airtel has debited Rs.50 from my Prepaid account without prior intimation and for the services best known to them,which i believe is cheating the custmers.My mobile No. is 9849183721.When i call the cutomer care they will take me for a ride but never i would contact the cutomer care which is really disappointing.With this i request Airtel to refund my Rs.50 talktime which was debited from my prepaid account unauthorisedly.

Undue deduction of call charges - Airtel

I, Arindam Haldar, am using an Airtel pre-paid number 9903361200 for the last 6 months in a 2 month old Nokia N-72 mobile. Last 7-10 days i have noticed that Airtel is charging me for a minute extra almost every time i am making a call. Suppose a call is recorded in my mobile for 4 minutes 50 seconds, Airtel is recording it 5 minutes and charging me for 6 minutes call time. I have got my mobile from Nokia priority dealer, who says that my mobile is working absolutely fine and the time shown by it is perfect. I have tried to call the customer care but could not reach it as there does not seem to be any customer care cell. I have sent complaint messages to customer care number 121, but only i have been getting an automated reply that "We have received your query and will get back to you within 24 hours." But to my total dismay, i havent received any response to my complaints from Airtel. I had opted for Airtel thinking that it is a great product but to my utter dismay i have discovered that I amd losing my hard earned money for no fault of mine. I have lost Rs. 300 (approx) in this ordeal and also with mental agony and fear of losing my hard earned money for no fault of mine. Please help me in this regard.

DO not Call - System does not support - Airtel India


I logged a complaint against a no., that is calling me from last couple of days for Credit card, as I have already registered for DO NOT CALL in sep 2007.

But I got a call from Airtel that they can't do this thing as their system is not set up for Do not call setup. Please register again.

I am shocked, why should I keep bearing these type of calls just because of failure on some part inspite of TRAI recomendation.

Dear Airtel All

I am Selvi.D. Past 3 years I was using Airtel prepaid Mobile, still I am airtel customer. Last month (05-03-2008) I changed my mobile prepaid to postpaid service. I brought two SIM.

1) 91-9994769843 prepaid to postpaid changed
2) 91-9952406097 new no.

During verification time I was not available in my home town, my father in law doesn’t know about the connection which I applied. Because of this confusion my outgoing calls (17-03-2008) diverted to airtel call center, and they advised me go to Saibaba kovil (MAXY) office in Coimbatore. That I am was in Hosur, I went to coimbatore Saibaba Kovil office 25-03-2008. They ask me to write a request letter for activation. They promised to me they would activate next day itself. But next day it was not activated.

I accepted my mistakes, but I asking about next procedure to active the service, but still they are not reply properly and what they want to active the service. I already submitted Passport also.

Again 27-04-2008 I called SIM provided person (Airtel) he ask me to come Lakshmi mill’s Airtel Barathi office. There I waited for 2 hours. Then they told me they would activate on that day itself.

But up to now my no Is not activated. Because of this I missed lot of opportunities (I am doing business) and suffered lots of stress.

09-04-2008 3:45 pm I ring up to Airtel SIM Provider and ask about status, he told me its not possible to activate the service.

My question
1) Why they are not told following the answer on that day.
a. (09-04-2008 3:45 pm its not possible to activate the service)
2) Why did you collect the passport details?
3) They didn’t give proper answer but they made me to go here and there.

I kept hope on Airtel office from 25-03-2008 to 09-04-2008 3:45 pm) but you people are cheated me. I need a concrete solution.

Thanks and Regards
