Mobile companies are using new means to loot consumers on the name of hello tunes.
Mobile companies are charging Rs 30 monthly for hello tunes without informing them about such options either they are wiling to avail, or not even people are being emerged to pay for such selection.
A customer, Shabir Ahmad told Agence India Press that, “All t he companies are involved in the loot.”
He said that in the issuance of SIM cards, strict conditions are followed but later the terms and conditions do not remain same and are violated itself by the companies.”
Another subscriber revealed that private companies forcibly obtain about Rs 4 to 5 lakh per day on unwanted schemes from a customer that is against rules and regulations.
Presently BSN, Airtel, Aircel, Tata Indicom, Reliance and Vodafone are operating in the valley, but unfortunately only few of them are following the rules.
Prepaid card holders are being exploited by the uneven schedules of their schemes, after requisition and recommendation of de-activating the hello tune and other unwanted options the companies assures that no subscription charges will be deducted hence forth but on recharging the card an automatic message is being displayed (your subscription is being renewed and you will be deducted 30 rupee per month)this pinches almost every consumer and a sweet memory and simplicity of landline comes before sight that was once a simple mean communication when companies themselves were unaware of their futile and uneven choices.
However authorities could not be contacted after repeating attempts.
