The invention of Internet has made life easy. Everything now is just a click away. Internet was invented in the early 1980s by Robert E. Khan and Vint Cerf. We can now use the Internet to communicate with people 1000s of miles away. It is no longer seen as a luxury rather a necessity.
Internet has made its way in the daily routine of a human being. It has both its advantages and disadvantages but its advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. India has the second largest number of Internet users after China. Some of the major features of the internet include world wide web, email, news, telnet etc.
The Internet service provider (ISP) is an organization that has been entitled with providing the internet. The most famous Internet Service Providers in India include:
- Hathway broadband
- Asianet etc.
Commonly Reported ISP Complaints in India
The most common ISPs complaints as reported by customer in Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, New Delhi, Noida and Kolkata include:
- No service
- Slow internet speed
- Service not activated
- No refund provided
- Wrong package
- Upgrade not applied etc.
So how can an individual deal with broadband complaints?
How to resolve ISP Complaints in India?
1. Contact ISP
First and foremost it is essential to raise an issue at the ISP's customer care number. As there is stiff competition among all the Internet Service Providers therefore they value customer feedback and resolve most cases when complained upon immediately. The customer care number of some of the leading ISPs in include are :
BSNL Customer Care Number - 1800-345-1500
MTNL Customer Care Number – 01122221507
Bharti Airtel Customer Care Number – 198
Hathway Cable Customer Care Number - 1800 221 119
Tata Communication Customer Care Number - 1800 2581 2120
You Telecom Customer Care Number – 9121291212
Reliance Communications Customer Care Number - 30333333
Sify Broadband Customer Care Number - 1800 4 19 29 29
Asianet Communications Customer Care Number – 9388800800
2. Contact Nodal Officer
Apart from raising your concern at their customer care number, every ISP has a grievance department headed by Nodal officer as directed by the law. You can even file a complaint there or mail them at the ID given. Most of the issues get resolved at this stage.
3. Send a Legal Notice
However, if you complaint is still being ignored, then the next best option would be to engage a lawyer and send a Legal Notice to ISP without wasting anytime. A well drafted Legal Notice by an experienced lawyer can do wonders. If you are unable to find a qualified & affordable lawyer then File a Complaint at Voxya and we will do the rest for you.
4. File a Consumer Forum Case
If everything fails to resolve your dispute then filing a complaint at your nearest consumer forum is the best option left for you. It is the least expensive option and you don’t even need a lawyer to process your case in the consumer forum. We at Voxya help in approaching the consumer forum by preparing the case documents. You just have to sign them and submit it in consumer court.
Till date Voxya has helped thousands of consumers living in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Pune, New Delhi, Kolkata, Noida, Chennai and Chandigarh.
