“It is extremely gratifying to emerge for the third consecutive month as the top grosser in the industry in terms of net subscriber additions. Our net subscriber additions in October validate the efforts that have been put into making our network and services the best in the industry,” Mr Anil Sardana , Managing Director of Tata Teleservices Limited, said. “As mentioned, October is the third consecutive month that we have achieved the highest number of net subscriber additions, and we thank each one of our new and existing subscribers for showering so much love, affection and trust in us. This has far exceeded our expectations and motivates us to provide the best telecom experience to our customers—in keeping with our larger objective of achieving customer affection and delight,” he added.

“It is also gratifying to see most of the competition paying homage to our pioneering pay per use pricing paradigm by copying it even though all of them have chosen to adopt it in small bits and pieces only. None of them have picked up the pay per use paradigm in its entirety, which is a pity because the Indian telecom subscriber is being deprived of full value for his or her money; and continues to pay for what he or she is not using,” Mr Sardana added.

Amazing to say that BSNL handed over my active line to another without noticed me & when I complained they offer a new SIM to me.

This is a serious issue. You should take it up with DoT PG Cell.
