Idea Cellular — totally unprofessional.

 sarthak1000b on Jun 20, 2018
Idea cellular (Aditya birla group) is out there now to levy charges using unethical means and least bothered about clients loyalty. I think since they have lost out to jio due to their customer friendly packs, they are using all kinds of unethical means. (Cheating on clients) that too who have been associated since past several years with multiple nos. Last month i was billed 800 rs stating i have used internet. After much deliberation they said the data pack was on hence i was charged whereas i never opted for the data plan. Post which they said they shall give 300 rs discount and i have to pay...
