What exactly happened Mr. Vikas Goyal, even I am facing problem with customer care, they are neither busy nnor will never turn up or feel to call us back.

Even to just avoid the calls, I observed people telling voice is breaking and just immediately and forcefully will disconnect the calls, that is how they respect their clients. Really shame on them
