Railways reduces Kajgaon's wagon
quota: Angry farmers plans protest:
The Central Railways Bhusawal Division has suddenly dropped Kajgaon Goods wagon quota from existing 4 to 2 without any prior intimation to farmers.

This extensive cost would not only increase the market cost of banana but also has chances of perishing of the crop.

Tips and tricks on Mobile Billing
India has witnessed one of historic revolution in terms of communication technology. We have seen immense growth and arrival of telecom players throughout the Country. Theme like "Everyone Mobile" is on roll and is likely to come true in coming years. The mobile and cellular telephony business involves numerous offers and hampers and as a result its billing process is too complex and many a times causes excess billing or billing for services that have not been used anyways. All Customer Post-Sales Support and issues are being handled by Call Centers that have a roll of always changing executives. This aspect leads to arrival of fresher executives that do not have any of the experience and/ or training on complexity of billing process and leads to false billing aspects. Hence one should be equally cautious and careful while requesting for ON/ OFF of variable services that have daily/ periodic charges. It has been largely observe that private operators giving huge full page advertisements to attract new customers on one hand fails to retain existing customer confidence with no training to support executives, no concrete policy on post-sales and billing issues.
The Telecom Regulatory Authority has come up with a wonderful Policy on Customer grievances and disputes resolution. Under this policy, every service provider has to appoint Nodal Officer in every service area. Customers finding no solution from these officers could approach Consumer Redressal forum for redressal of their grievances. Group of Consumers can approach Telecom Dispute Settlement Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) for adjudication of any disputes with the service providers. Every service provider has to provide communication details of Nodal officers along with their Postal address, phone numbers, and e-mail.
So next time, if you feel that you have been cheated or charged with services you have never used, don't just ignore, just write an e-mail to Nodal Officers and see the response thereafter.
