    When I sent you sms to ‘STOP’ my all the unnecessary (even I haven’t availed) to 121, then you cut around Rs. 60

It is clearly an offence that without customer permission you are deducting money from account in the name of some useless VAS.I shall go to court if you don:stop.The methods you give in mobiles to stop the stupid services also useless. I warn the Aitel authority to no do such snatching activity.

  36. one of the major complain of Airtel service provider is your this kind of bad activity that is without the knowledge of customer activation of VAs and deduction of money. I would say all my friends leave Aitel service and take other services Airtel is exploiting money fro customer by this kind of VAS services

  60. It is highly shameful on the part of Airtel to activate any services without the permission of the subscribers. Innocent buyers, especially pre-paid users,, even literates, are suffering due to this. If this practice is not stopped and Airtel coming with open apology, complaint will be lodged with TRAI.

  61. Full songs download,desi beats,and so on are some alert packs activated automatically with a no. Of messages to disturb valuable time

    Valueadded service are automatically start without my request and INR deducted from my balance.

  74. Without my permission why airtel servicer active my VAS service……it’s great shame business of airtel

  75. I am never interested in all such stupid services even free… but they automatically start it on my phone and charge from my balance… without my permission and then all time i have to take pain to call them n discontinue the service.. this is really painful.. and irritating.. without owner’s permission y do u activate such faltu services… n then throw ball in our court to discontinue the service.. Shameful. This is theft, instead they should beg door to door for money they need.

  76. I had also faced the same issue and I moved to consumer court. Finally the decision was made in my favor and I got 25,000 INR as the compensation amount in total from airtel.

  77. Every month there is deduction of RS 19 from my main balance for 200 MB….so how can I stop that automatic deduction..could you be solved my problem.

  78. I call the no.155223 but this in invalid number so what can i do for deactivate for all servis in my airtel sim*

  79. It’s very shameful to AIrtel to loot money from its customers in the form of activating Value Added servces without their customer permission, it’s really disgusting, this is a clear sign of company’s bankruptcy very soon which is unable to compete with its rivals like(JIO,IDEA etc..)Airtel hunting their customers to loot money whenever we recharge they deduct money as BOJPURI Video Service & other craps,Despite deactivating the service by calling its chutya customer care which was never enabled by us, still it remains enabled only we get SMS as deactivated but same remains enabled. Bloody Bastards..I’m gonna switch to some other operator now.

  80. This Vas service is really disgusting..stop and sending msg to 121 is not working..its reactivated continuosly plz stop the vas service..its deducting my balance without my activation..

  81. Ambanis are thieves and they will remain so for their lifetime.
    Switching to BSNL. Enough is enough of these looters.

  82. Airtel very poor service.When there is balance they activate vas services and deduct the balances

  83. Please deactivate VAS from my airtel number. And also refumd my 35 rs which is deducted unnecessary

  84. Please stop or deactivate VAS. And refund my 35 rs which is deducted unnecessarily

  85. I am not at all interested in all such stupid services even free, but they automatically start it on my phone and charge from my balance 2 times without my permission and then all time I have to take pain to call them and discontinue the service.. This is really painful. and irritating. Without owner’s permission why did they activated such services which I do not need and then throw ball in our court to discontinue the service. as if it is our fault. This way they are cheating people and instead of this kind of act they should have begged door to door for money they need would have been appreciated.

  86. This is very unfortunate that mobile service like airtel is doing just the other operator doing in past . I hv 15 years with airtel not a single day any problem . and my self proud that i hv airtel who dont deduct unnecessary any amt from my balance, but last one week my self observed that various VAS deduct my balance
    @35/ or more my self already loss rs 100/-+ . it is not possible time to time ck mobile and deactivate /call for deactivate /or go to store . the aged person in home dont do this , now i stop recharge i have also three airtel connection all stop recharge .
    if AIRTEL NOT STOP CHETING . MAY GO TO TRAI AND CONSUMER FORUM FOR FURTHER ACTION

  87. Airtel earning black money through some service activated without customers permission. eg. Yesterday evening I received a massage that activated game zine services and deducted Rs.5/- per day. Assume that theses people did this to 1 lack customers then what was their illegal earning? Rs. 500000/- . So customer please start fighting against this illegal services.

  88. Bhak Mc faltu me ye service suru kar diya Mc. बिना parmision लिए bhosdi k

  89. I have also been a victim of unnecessary VAS in my sim. Airtel has activated VAS 2 times in my number. Although I have deactivated instantly but the company has not refunded the deducted amount.

  90. Airtel activates services without the consent of user … And I think that is why they were still in profit in this quarterly results (april 2018)… Airtel is “”stealing”” money…

  91. Unnecessarly some pcks are activated in my sim without my knowledge . In every recharge they are taking money . Stop all my plans like.. kid zone…..

  92. my ph no is 9542804505 balace diducted on without using pls stop it and co-opertate
