Airtel — airtel channel activation fraud

 mjain1 on Jan 12, 2019
Today i received a call from an airtel digital tv executive. She told me about some channel called relam chel and asked me to activate it. I clearly told her i dont want this channel multiple times. But she repeatedly kept telling me about the channel. After that i hang up the phone. After some time, i received a message from airtel that the channel has been activated and rs 39 has been deducted from my balance.
I want to know why airtel is commiting such frauds.
This is very disgusting....

Airtel — monopolized illegal deduction persistently

 rameesh718 on Jan 12, 2019
You have gone deducting illegally rs. 23 multiple times from my account mobile no. [protected]. Still after my email and denial to deduct such amount to your madam over phone when she called us, you shamelessly went on deducting at your wish and whim and you have done all these deduction without our consent.
You had a right to stop services if no recharge made but without our permission you simply cannot deduct a single penny from our account.
Just because you have our money with you, does not mean you will deduct anything without our consent which you did multiple times....

Airtel — amount of rs 3000 not refunded

 VishalThakur21 on Jan 12, 2019
On 9th jan, airtel sales guy visited my place and told me about new airtel broadband plans. I paid rs3000 for airtel broadband connection. The sales person told me that he would get internal wiring done for the connection. The installation guy later told that internal wiring is not possible and would have to use external wiring throughout the house. I could not get the external wiring done as my landlord did not allow me to. I was upset with the false commitments made by the sales guy and told him that i do not want the connection in this case, please refund my amount. Since then, there is no response...

Airtel — auto deduction 23 rupees balance before 15 days incoming validity

 prithvirajsin on Jan 12, 2019
My airtel number also got deducted 23 rs once outgoing due is over. I had 15 days incoming validity. Airtel forcefully deducted 23 rs from balance before utilising incoming facility. Either remove incoming validity if you like to deduct 23 from user on end of outgoing validity, also get confirmation from users before deducting amount. As per trai airtel should provide 15 days incoming facility. I suppose to recharge some other pack, by that time airtel deducted amount. I came to know that airtel is deducting 23 rs from all users...

I made one transactions at airtel payment bank of rs 50000, transaction successful, but amount has not credited to other airtel money account..

When i am calling airtel money customer care, they are only fooling me, they are always informing me that you will get your amount back within 1-2 hours.. Airtel is only cheating their customers.. What they are doing is, just taking money from customers, keeping it with themselves, and then earning income...
