How to resolve Telecom complaints?
So if you also have had a bad experience in the past with telecom operator, then do not hesitate to take below actions:
1. Contact Telecom Company:
Firstly you should try to resolve the complaint by calling on the customer care number of the telecom company. All the telecom companies have 24*7 working customer care numbers specially designed for the help of the consumers as they value their satisfaction. The customer care number of some of the leading telecom companies in India are :
Airtel Customer Care Number - 0124 - 4448080 (north)
020 - 44448080 (west)
033 - 44448080 (east)

BSNL Customer Care Number – 198/1500/1800-345-150 (Other Operator)
Reliance Customer Care Number - 1800 200 1100
2. Contact Nodal Oficer:
If the company itself is not willing to resolve your complaint, then there are other steps which can be taken. If the customer is not satisfied by the response provided by the call center team of the service provider then he/she should contact the Nodal Officer of the service provider and lodge his/her complaint.
3. Report to Government:
You can even file a complaint at the website of Department of Telecommunication here http://dot.gov.in/public-grievances This website is created by the Government of India to help resolve telecommunication complaints of the consumers.
Further, you can contact the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and express your dissatisfaction against a telecom company. The TRAI’s customer care number is 011-2323 6308. The TRAI, however, does not look into individual complaints but will ask you to file a complaint through the Telecom Consumers Complaint Monitoring System (TCCMS) portal of TRAI (http://www.tccms.gov.in/).
4. Send Legal Notice:
