When I went to US, I kept the phone for safe custody for 6 months and extended this by another 18 Months. I had the returned the modem also.
They were not charging any rental because of this and collected only safe custody charges. Whe I wanted further extn they said the wd charge rental
Too although the modem was retd in JUNE 12 2012 itself. They want ack to be produced, but being in US I do not know where I have kept/filed it.
Still we cannot do away with their draconian waysnof colonial past


this is the way to help private companies like reliance, airtel, aircell like that. i think top ranking officers will collect lot of money from private companies. its a stupid work. very soon bsnl will be handover to private concern.
