    I have converted my no from CDMA to GSM as handsets are not available now and almost more than a week my Nos. are still switched off and your people in Chd and Mandi do not attend our ph calls.
    We think that we shall go in court.
    Really it is very irresposible of your people working at Mandi (HP) and Chd. Mr. Santosh . They should not be in the company as if you cannot provide the service or listen to the customers or take their calls.
    A serious action should be taken about this.

    I would rather suggest every1 to leave reliance.
