I called up airtel customer care before the last transaction took place and asked them to block the same,but they said they were unable to do it.
After calling thrice spoke to asupervisor who gave me a number of nodal office.
Spoke to three people there
First lady(kanya or kavya)- put me on hold for an eternity and never came back, and I was charged for the call.
Next person I spoke to, I informed him that I do not have balance so please ensure the call does not get disconnected from my side. He assured me it would not, but as I was explaining the call got disconnected due to low balance.
Next lady, I told her that I would like to speak to the manager and she came back saying he is busy and has promised me a call back within 3 hours.
Let's see what happens.
