[Resolved]  Tata Indicom Vdata Card — HUGE BILL AMOUNT

Customer Care
Tata Indicom
New Delhi.


REF : TATA INDICOM NO. [protected]

I have received a Bill from Tata Indicom bearing No.[protected] dated 22/11/2007 for Rs.2, 203/-. It was my first bill and I was shocked to receive such a huge bill particularly when I opted for a low Tariff Plan of "Value 325 VData Plan". I opted for this Plan due to one more reason. While taking the VData Card from their Delhi Office, the Executive who explained me about the plan, mentioned that I will get 1800 minutes of free usage. He also mentioned that additional charges will be there after 1800 minutes of free usage is over i.e. from 8.00 Pm – 12.00 it is 50 paise, and 12 to 8 a.m. it is 25 paise.

He made an impression to me that after free usage of 30 hours, I will get additional bills @ 50 paise per hour from 8-12 and @ 25 paise per hour from 12-8 ! He should have mentioned it as from 8 - 12 - 50 paise per minute and from 12-8 it is 25 paise per minute. When I realized this, my connection has been disconnected by them.

I had written several emails after getting my 1st bill requesting them cancel the my bill of Rs.2, 203/- and issuance of a new bill according to my usage plus my monthly rental of the Plan I opted for.


One more mail I had sent to them and their reply given below :-

This is in furtherance of my email of today followed by our telephonic talk vide which I had explained you about the wrong information I had got while taking the V-Data Card from your Delhi branch office. As it was around 7.00 P.M. in the evening when I reached the said office when all were in a hurry and the Security Guard over there was virtually kicking out who ever tried to enter the help desk of Executives who sits inside the office. After some wait, an Executive, Amit come out of his cabin and when I asked about the plans he showed me the V-Data Card sample and immediately write down something on a piece of paper and gone. (Copy enclosed for your reference. Please note the circle with black pen where he did not mentioned 'minute' due to which all these misunderstandings arisen) After some more wait, he again came back and asked me to make the payment of V-Data Card. I had immediately paid an amount of Rs.2980/- as Security Deposit for the said Card.

One more incident I would like to inform you that while taking the connection the concerned Execute had put a wrong Mobile No. [protected] on my Application Form. After that it took 10 days for verification. After some days when my connection has been disconnected I called the helpline number when they asked me to resubmit my verification papers. After much enquiry it has been found that my number was not [protected] and it is now [protected].

Their reply

Should you require any further assistance, you can call us at 121 or write at customercare.[protected]

After getting the above email promising me to take action on my complaint, they did not respond to my many mails sent to them.

I now look forward for a complete waiver of the huge bill sent to me, which has happened due to wrong information I got from their executive only. I also look forward for continuing their V-Data connection provided by them almost 5 months back and disconnected by them after usage of only 13 days.

TATA Indicom — V Data card

I had purchased a V Datacard and got a SIM against the same.. However, the SIM was never enabled and had lodged 2 complaints on the TATA site regarding the same. Complaint Nos. 14125 (dated 23rs Sept' 08) and 19779 (dated 27th Sept' 08) and had also asked them to cancel the connection. However, despite repeated complaints, no resolution for the same has been done and am getting harassing collection calls every day for the past 2 months.

Do look into this matter on an urgent basis.

I was planning to purchase a V-Data card for the first time. It was all set. But finally after going through the complaints of other customers, I' ve changed my mind and decided not to go for any dealing for this card of this so called reputed company because I think I' ll be harassed in the same fashion if I purchase the card. Thanks to GOD.
I was planning to go for a Tata Indicom Vdata card, but after going through comments and the problems they are facing I have decided not to opt for this. I too have bitter experience with the customer care of Tata indicom for my mobile phone.Better for Tata indicom to improve their customer support.

On Data Card Tata Indicom Showing Fake Downloading Speed Comittment Like I Get Downloading Speed max 215kbps, Where I Get 'Rx-0' and 'Tx-0' kbps. Its A Loot Of MONEY, suggest me what i have to do?
Tata has spoiled all its reputation by venturing in Telephony and Internet. I own a Vdata card and also had a broadband connection. With Vdata card I faced following problems
i) On a data card, they had enabled additional services such as CLID and call forwarding and were charging me for it. I had not requested these services and they make no senses on a data card.
ii) I kept calling up their customer care to change the plan but they simple refused on some ground or the other. I was given vague reasons such as "their computer showed my connection as a phone connection and therefore the system did not allow them to select a data plan" & "The connection opted for by me did not allow me the freedom to change plans"
iii) It took me eight months to change the plan. During these eight months I paid them extra money due to a wrong plan.
On my broadband connection it was not working and I kept complaining but they did not repair it. One fine day (after one month) when I called their customer service I was told that the latest bill is due (for the period the connection was not working) and they cannnot log complaints till it is paid. So I paid and sent an email requesting disconnection. It was April and now it is October. Since then I am fighting for a refund of the amount (Rs.900) that stands as credit in my account. They keep delaying is by 2-3 weeks everytime I mail them probably hoping that one day I will get frustrated and forgo and amount.
I even got the contact address of their top GMs and directors from their website and sent email to them. Forget a response, I did not even receive an acknowledgement. They are a bunch of crooks.
i totally agree with you man.
darn, this tata thing sucks and it really never works the same ..
i am using it in bangalore .. in central areas like indira nagar and karmangala and every time i need speed i have to come out ot the roof...
this doesnt works ... i getting out of it .. IT SUCKS ..
