Now I got why you are always supporting Airtel blindly. Airtel employee will always support Airtel.
You are never a customer. So you won’t see the pain of customer, when your company deducts balance illegally.
You know how to enjoy on our money which was looted by your Company. You take our money and scold us on public forum for telling the truth.
This is why I hate Airtel and it’s scammer employees. Will you & your company ever reform? or will continue bashing customers?

Now days every operator getting award for some thing.

But its good to see best employer award for Airtel.

So this way MTNL also should get best of best employer award. It is becoz MTNL’s uncle and aunties are lasy and dont even know there own plans some times and MTNL is paying salary as per 6th pay commission, free calls and other benefits.
So MTNL is more eligible then AIrtel for best employee award.

@ARIF – many will criticise AIRTEL (cause grapes are sour) but from an EMPLOYEE PERSPECTIVE this is one of the best companies to work for. I have been fortunate to be a part of this wonderful organisation in both East (Kolkata) and South (Hyderabad) India.
