Airtel — NDNC registration
Palakkad, Kerala, India
I have a prepaid connection from Airtel. During the time of registration, i opted for the NDNC registration. But after a month of service, suddenly they started making promotional calls to my number and suddenly one day they activated a pack and deduced 2 rs per day making my no. unusable. I mailed them a no. of times for a response but got only auto response. But after more than 10 days, they replied me with this.
[this have the complaint details and the registration confirmation of NDNC (though i registered at the time of taking the connection, it never happened) and my mail to them]

Subject: DNDC registration.
I have registered DNDC for my Airtel prepaid no [protected], while taking the
Form the past couple of days i am receiving calls regarding offers and today,
24th March, i got a message saying a pack has been activated and deducted 2rs
from my account.
Then what is the purpose of registering DNDC????
What is the procedure to get it corrected?? Should i register a complaint
anywhere else?????? I have the calls recorded for proof.
I need this fixed NOW.
Dear -, Your email dated 24/03/2011 04:54:41 PM,reference number[protected] is in process. We will get back to you at the earliest. Airtel Care
After that i didnt get any calls for some time. But again now, from 25th Apr 2011 onwards it again started. I am getting a LOT of promotional calls from [protected]. If we didnt pickup knowing it is from the customer care or if we disconnect the call, they will call again and AGAIN, which is VERY ANNOYING.
I called them up this time (remember, they charge 50p/3min for this call. Last time they took me to -ve balance and i could contact only through mail) and registered a complaint. The reference # is CDRGP[protected].
This is not acceptable and now there is no point in registering NDNC. They still call and take our money.
I have the calls logged and recorded. I need an action against it. It is causing me a lot of problems. I am a person who travel a lot and get a lot of important calls. Airtel promotional calls come continuously without a break (remember i still have the NDNC registed), and while driving it had proved to be dangerous to me, a lot of times.
I need an action against this. They waste a lot of time and money of mine because of this.
Please consider this as my written complaint and please do the needful.
