    Post Reliance broadband and mental harassment with legal threat

    Hi all,

    I took a reliance broadband connection in Year 2010. I had a combo plan of Rs. 499 with 300 kbps. So I got a bill of Rs. 550.40 including all taxes each month. Now reliance broadband people
    change my plan to some other combo plan. This combo plan have more rental then old plan. So the change my plan without my notification(with out inform me). So, because of this change of
    plan, I got a bill of 1215.59 Rs in month of April 2012. Before April 2012 I got a called from reliance agent every week for a plan change. I simply reply to all agent that "I don't want any plan change. I am satisfied with my current plan. So, I don't want any plan change. And that new plan was high rental plan." Although also they change my plan to some other combo plan. So, I called up to customer care and they told me your plan is changed to other combo plan which have high monthly rental then my older plan. I explain to customer care people that, "I did not give any conformation to reliance team about change my plan. So they explain me mail your issue at broadband at relianceada dot com." So, I mailed to reliance customer care team at broadband at relianceada.com and explain my issue on Tuesday, 8 May 2012 11:28 AM. After 3 mail from my side they reply me on Saturday, 12 May 2012 9:54 AM.

    Here is Sample of their reply

    Dear Customer,

    I did not get any reply till 16 May 2012. From 12 to 16 the May 2012 reliance team continuously called me to pay your remaining bill. And I told them "I have an issue related to bill. So once it solved I will pay bill." and the ask me about my complain number. So through mail I asked them my complaint number. But they did not give me my complaint number.

    Now on 16th May I got a mail from reliance. Here is Sample of their reply

Please reactivate my old plan. For your information, I will pay the current bill with respect to my plan not the current one.

    Now, today is 18th July 2012. I still don't get any reply from reliance team.

    Now, before 2 days on 16th July 3:39 pm some guy is called me from +91 96608750XX number and introduce himself as a lawyer of high court of delhi. He told me pay your remaining bill otherwise I will take a legal action against you, I will case a file against you and you have to come on some xxxx date for hearing in high court of delhi. He use some abuse language on phone.

    Is it the right way how reliance group treat with their customer? Is there any legal procedure there to answer that guy? What should I do?

    I am surprised that they activated another plan on your line without your confirmation.

    And regarding the guy who introduced himself as a lawyer; that is a usual tactic used by the private service providers in India. That guy is not a lawyer. He is a collection agent working on behalf of some private agency.

    Just ignore such calls. Wait for them to migrate you to the old plan and then make the bill payment. In the mean time, switch to some other ISP.

    Hi cool_techie_tvm,

    Thanks for quick response. Okay.. but what if that guy continuously harass me? Should I go through some legal procedure against that guy? I told to customer care that "I am ready to pay base on my old plan but I am not gonna pay with this new plan that u suddenly change without notification." I also send a request for disconnect the connection and take all their instrument(Modem + landline) and meanwhile I changed to other ISP.

    Hi Ankit,

    Sorry to hear about your ordeal. Relience, even though offers good plans and speed, when it comes to money they are theifs!
    The unfortunate thing is that we customers dont have the time to approach the court, for 1000 Rupees! They take advantage of that.
    Keep posted about the updates. If considered legally, you dont owe them anything!
