I recharged using icici.com. I got an sms from airtel that its not been effected. But my money has been debited. I wanted to speak to their call center why they have not effected. The funny part is - after going thru multiple menus when I was to reach teh call center rep to speak, the message that comes is - this number does not exist in typical mtnl style. After many tries, i smsed them on 121 and as per their website, they are supposed to call back. But instead they keep smsing me back that i have to speak to their call center.
I tried their nodal officer where the call wont go thru.
There is simply no way to TALK to the provider who is trying to get people of india to talk to each other!!!
