[Resolved]  Airtel Digital TV — Complaint against Airtel

We had installed Airtel Digital TV on 30/05/2009. After a week the screen started showing that this card is not valid. By contacting Airtel Call centre they told that Rs.100 is balance from our side. After recharging Rs.100 it was activated. After a week again i.e. 15/06/2009 again the TV screen showed that this ID card is not valid. We again called centre again they informed that we have subscribed for ESPN package and Rs.60 is pending in our account. While we had not sent any SMS for subscription. The fact is that airtel has deactivated free to air channels also. Is airtel collecting Rs.50-100 every week with the customers who had subscribed for free to air channels for one year on some pretext or other?
Why are ads given for fee-to-air channels subscriptions for one year? Can I get justice from airtel? Every time we contact airtel customer service they say "You pay this amount this time and next time it will not happen? Is this the way adopted by airtel to humiliate genuine customers and harrass them by charging them exhorbitantly evey week?

I topped up my Airtel (Chennai) with Rs.415/- through icici mobile recharge facility at around 9 pm 24oct 08. Instead of choosing to go to the nearby shop, I had resorted to using the online facility as I was at work and had an urgent phone appointment with an important person at 9:30 pm the same day. To my dismay, I didnt get the top up message until 10:20 pm. At 10.20 pm I get a funny message ( with lots of "%20%") which I was able to vaguely make out, a top up intimation message from Airtel. Just to confirm my fears of the recharge amount, I check the balance enquiry *123# and ofcourse I get a shock.. I see I have Rs. 286.51 left;I had atleast 1 Re before recharge. And apart from the poor return of investment, in this one hour from 9 to 10 pm, I had to undergo the embarassment of asking the person with whom I had a phone appointment to kindly call me as "I had low balance"... I tried their customer care in vain.. Never did I get an option to talk to a cust care executive.. In my utter frustration, I put a no wrong when I called aircel care (Im no aircel man)... Just when I was glad to greeted by a phone operator, I discovered it was aircel, and then disappointment again..
What a poor show by Airtel.. I swear, I am ashamed to be associated with Airtel.. My next move?? Throw both my mobile and its sim card into the dust bin..(My plan is talk more plan with 49 p per call, just for information.)

just in case, my email: [protected] (no spam please, but relevent emails certainly yes)

air card — call is not going or coming from some airtel number

Respected Sir/Madam,

It is more than 2 months that i am not getting any call nor i am able to call some of the airtel number. Even customer Care service is not working . I am using airtel from past 3 3.5 years but if this problem is not solved i am planning to switched to other network.

Please look into this issue ASAP.

Airtel — Billing Problem- no action since the complaint has been logged 15-20 Days Back.

My wife was using Airtel post paid mobile no.[protected].
We found that in the last few bills most of the SMS sent by this number on the local numbers has been charged on ISD tariff basis. Although on our complaints, each time those issues get rectified by Airtel.
But, We were surprised by the last bill for the month of September-October, where Airtel has charged Rs.5000 for GPRS services, Although since the last 1.5 years the average bill is appx.Rs.1200 on monthly basis for same sort of services.

I have logged the complaint for the same on 6/11/2008 ([protected].

Still waiting for any feedback & action from Airtel.

AIRTEL DIGITAL TV — am i being charged extra?

Hi, i have brought the Airtel Digital TV, with south mega pack for rs 2500 for 6months in Oct '08 soon after the launch. Since they dont provide HBO, ZEE studio and Sports with it, i have topped it up paying rs35 for HBO, Zee Studio, Zee MGM pack and rs 45 for ESPN, star sports pack. But without showing any repect to our loyality of being among the first customers, they have started selling the same pack for same price of Rs2500 for 6months with ESPN pack and their webiste also inculdes HBO and Zee Studio in the list of channels. Can I know why i am being ripped of Rs 80per month for the same channels and that too for being one of the first customers.

AIRTEL DIGITAL TV — Pending Installation


I had marked a request for my Airtel digital TV to be relocated from my mohali address to NOIDA address on 24/12/2008. Both addresses are mentioned below for your reference. My registered phone number is [protected]. First time i called for this was on 24/12/2008. The customer service executive took my new address in NOIDA & booked the slot for technical installation executive. However next day (when this guy was was to visit my NOIDA residence for installation), i got a call from MOHALI stating that your executive in Mohali is not able to find my NOIDA address in MOHALI. Again i called customer service team who again after apologising alloted another slot. Again after couple of days i got similar call from MOHALI. This process of booking the slot has happened four times now & still i am reciving calls from MOHALI to intall my connection. I have spoken to Mr Rakesh (Floor incharge), Ms Sonia (Team Leader) still i havent got any solution. Whats most disgusting is that Airtel has already deducted Rs 600/- as reinstallation charges & still no-one bothered to inform me about the status. The incompetent team is still not able to provide any solution which in this case is arranging for an installation slot at NOIDA. Today again i called up the customer care. Today this guy Sajid, asked me to deposit Rs600/- again stating that i need to deposit this amount & later this will be refunded. When i told him that i will not pay anything now as i have already paid the charges, he disconnected my call.

With the kind of service provided by airtel, i am made to believe that i have made a huge mistake by trusting airtel over various other DTH service providers. Its a simple case o[censored]nderstanding that a customer has relocated from Mohali to NOIDA & wants his connection to be relocated as well. One need not be a rocket scientist to understand a simple relocation case. Now i want my reintalling to be done very urgently. Also i would like some one very responsible to call me from AIRTEL AND NOT FROM AGENCY CALL CENTRE who can be sensitive about the customer's problem & "can get the things done". Its already been 12 days & if no future action is taken to my satisfaction, i will be forced to initiate legal action against airtel digital TV
