Consumer Complaint Online Against TataSky

Mr Mannu Dutta came to us regarding his complaint against Tatasky DTH Operator. According to him, it was 16th October 2018 when he paid an amount of Rs. 2200/- to Tatasky by visiting at their website This online transaction was done through Mr Dutta’s JK Bank account. In spite of making the full payment our client did not receive any service from Tatasky. Neither the DTH connection was installed nor the customer care was responding to the queries. Every time he got the same reply “we will look into this matter in two-three days”. As television is one of the biggest source of entertainment as well as relaxation after the hectic day to day work schedule, our client was worried about this issue. He also approached them and tried to explain the entire matter to Tatasky customer care by talking to them 30 times but no solution was provided to him. Our client managed to arrange the Bill from BillDesk payment solution stating that the amount has been credited to Tatasky. Mr Dutta was worried about his hard earned money which he spent for the Tatasky connection but neither the connection was installed nor his money was refunded. In spite of using Tatasky for 12 years Mr Dutta had to go through this hard situation.

Always be alert as a consumer

Consumers should always have receipts with them which can be used as evidence if needed because the court believes in evidence rather than verbal stories. For example, we could help Mr Dutta in resolving this issue only because we had the evidence to prove his points. Either it is an online transaction or offline, consumers should always have the receipts, bills, invoice, online transaction details, SMS alerts from banks etc. Nowadays consumers are facing frauds and trouble every other day and keeping these records will help them to play safe.

Resolve DTH Consumer Complaint At Voxya

The Consumer Protection Act itself says that a consumer is a person who “buys” any good or “hires” any service and when there is absence of payment transaction between the two parties, the consumer does not have the right to complain under this law. In our country, many consumers are unaware of their rights and hence a large section of traders continue their business without receipts and records to mislead the consumers. Failure to issue a bill or receipt is considered an unfair trade practice under the same law and consumers have the right to be protected from any unfair trade.

If any DTH provider refuses to issue the bill, they can be dragged straight to the court under the knowledge of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India. Being alert as a consumer is the key point for protection against any kind of frauds.

TRAI’S New DTH Plan Creates Chaos Among Consumers

TRAI Consumer Complaint At Voxya

TRAI, also known as Telecom Regulatory Authority Of India has recently come up with a new scheme for consumers which enables them to select channels of their choice and appropriately pay as per their choice of channels. This will help to reduce the burden of a common man who has been paying a huge amount of subscription to operators even for unwatched channels.

For this Trai has launched a web application to help the consumers in selecting their desired packages. Though his regulation for Indian television and the broadcasting sector has been implemented since February 2019, people all around the country are still confused about it. TRAI’s application will help consumers in selecting the desired channels and also knowing their total cost beforehand including 18% GST.

Now the subscription fees have been distributed in two categories: -one is NCF- Network Capacity Fees which is just like a recurring fixed rental payment paid every month and the other one is the price of selected paid channels. For example:- The NCF for 100 channels is Rs.130/- and if you select two paid channels of Rs. 20/- each then your total monthly cost would be 130+40=170 rupees. However, there are three slabs provided for NCF which are Rs.130/- for 100 channels, Rs. 150/- for 100 to 125 channels and Rs. 170/- for 125 to 150 channels.

There are 550 FTA i.e. Free To Air channels at present and the other channels are paid ones. Consumers don’t need to pay any amount for the FTA channels. The basic motive of TRAI’s web application is to optimise the selection of the channels and calculate the bill. Consumers can also download and print the selection along with the calculated price through this application.

TRAI has implemented these new tariff guidelines to decrease the burden of NCF on the cable DTH customers. The deadline for the implementation of the cable DTH tariff plan for the cable operators and broadcasters has been extended to 31st March 2019. Although this regulation has been implemented for decreasing the burden on DTH consumers still consumers are facing a lot of difficulties in using this new tariff plan.

TRAI Consumer Complaint At Voxya

Currently, we are receiving many consumer complaints against the DTH cable operators countrywide. Many DTH consumers are coming to our portal to file complaints against popular DTH companies. Most of the complaints are related to issues like operators are still charging fees for the unwanted channels, they are not upgrading tariff plan as per the user’s choice and in some cases, though the payment has been made still the consumers are not able to view the selected channels. In fact, a few of the consumers are also complaining that they are facing difficulties in selecting their desired channels due to technical issues or errors at operators end. Such consumer complaints are increasing day by day and a lot of chaos has occurred among the consumers regarding this new cable DTH tariff plan.

Though TRAI has requested the DTH operators to create the best-fit-plan for the subscribers, the subscribers are advised to collect information about the new rules and guidelines which have been imposed since 1st, February 2019. Let’s hope that this new framework will bring a positive revolution in Direct-To-Home entertainment.

A brief about the Pepperfry complaint

Our client Mr. Anubhav Guha filed a complaint at our consumer complaint website against a very well know furniture selling company It was regarding a Queen-size-storage-bed which was purchased by our client from

While ordering the bed online our client was sure about his decision of ordering a Queen-size-storage-bed and this product will fulfill his requirements but things turned upside when the bed arrived. Mr. Guha noticed that the bed seems to be completely different from what he actually ordered from pepperfry. Although for a storage bed, its necessary to attach the bed with a fixed base so that it can be used for storing things in that area but the manufacturer did not provide any fixed covered base and instead there were rubber mats. The bed which was delivered to our client was neither a storage bed nor the bed which was displayed on the’s website while ordering it online. In fact, the product description was completely different from what was actually delivered.

This was a moment of shock and disappointment for our client as he paid Rs. 10394 to purchase this bed online and the delivered product was not expected at all.

So, Mr. Guha visited our portal on 21st November 2018 and requested us to help him resolve this issue.

Be aware of online fraud

-Today, a lot of people have been cheated while shopping online. Sometimes the e-commerce sites are fake and sometimes fraud takes place on the original sites too. It is really hard to differentiate between fake and original websites and also fake and original products which are being displayed on the website. So, we can always try to be sure about what we are purchasing and where we are spending our hard earned money.

First of all, we should always check the quality of the image which is being displayed for the product, fake product images and fake websites always have a bad quality image represented their product.

The second thing which should always strike a customer’s mind is that there is an unbelievable price mentioned for each product. Sometimes they show special deals and discounts but in reality, they just attract customers towards their fraud schemes. That impossible for a good brand to sell to many things in such a small price or low cost.

Next and the most important point to be noted is that the fake websites mostly don’t mention their contact details, addresses or working contact numbers. They do this so that they can vanish away with the money and nobody can contact them of file complaint against company because they can not be tracked. Before placing orders it’s important to find the contact details and check if the given details are genuine or not.

At times the websites are genuine but the manufacturers who are displaying their products on the site are fraud. So to be aware of such sellers, the consumers must check the reviews of the product, the quality of the image of the product, also check if the product description matches the product in the image or not and if the price looks genuine for example if there a 40 inch LED TV for 6000 rupees that too from a very well known brand, it obviously sounds fishy.

These are some points which help a consumer to keep themselves protected and from online frauds.
