This is a rubbish service. I just called and was told by the operator that after 4 hours i will get sms of location of my relative. When asked I was told location means ONLY CITY OR AREA NO ADDRESS. This is useless. Lot can happen in 4 hours.

It would be better if they(Telecom Companies ) won’t consider BLACKOUT DAYS during these remaining Dussehra. Or else they will charge more rather than providing service
