Service, BSNL style
I got my BSNL telephone and broadband connections disconnected on 27.7.06. Even then, BSNL is regularly sending the bills at my address without justifying the reason. In one such bill dated 05.12.07 while the units consumed are nil, the bill amounts to Rs 7,370. I have written several times to the BSNL authorities, but to no avail.
