Jio didn't disappoint. It is as reliance as reliance gets.

I had applied for a connection on 2/9/20 for Jio Fiber with a promise of connection on 3/9/20. After multiple contacts, nothing was done. I complained on PGPortal and this is the audacity of their response.
"This is with reference to the DOT complaint DOTEL/E/2020/*****. We have investigated and found that the location is not feasible currently for installation of JioFiber. Our team has informed the same to the customer. For the refund he can raise the cancellation from his end to process refund. As per the communication with our team, customer has mentioned that he will raise the disconnection. Once the disconnection is raised the refund will be done in 15 working days."
Are you kidding me? You took my money. Promised me a connection. Can't provide one. Now don't even have the decency to refund me on your own.

Reliance cheated me in 2003 with their phone and they continue to do so in 2020 with their fiber. They are just a nasty company.

They have to activate in their server to give connection.

you must be having the phone number and other details of the person who took money. call him and tell him that you are going to file an FIR against him for fraud if he does not refund your money immediately.
if customer raises disconnection request then disconnection is as per customer request and not due to fault of the agent. ask the agent to raise disconnection request from the company side for their failure to provide service.

How low can Jio get? And they call themselves, 5g company with 5g standards....
If it was not for political support, they would be nowhere...
So now, you have to run around to get your refund back.... I thought these things happened in India decades ago,....

There is a lesson to be learned here - Never pay in advance. Pay on the day of installation (When they come for installation).
In my case, I paid them after they laid the wires, and opened the new router and stb boxes....

Also check your street and neighbor places, to see if they have laid wires. and if they have connection. A little homework from our side helps to avoid such situations....

Also take a copy of id of salespersons... You have every right to ask for it.....

Hope you get your money back from these scoundrels.....

BTW, I liked your post not because you were swindled by Jio, but because you took the time to post this experience which would help others going for a new connection....

They are just trying to boost their numbers and meet targets. How can a user request disconnection when there was no connection in the first place? I think they are just trying to avoid such incident being registered in their system or against the agent (not sure if there is even such a system in place)
Try to push for failure to provide connection/non feasible area as reason rather than 'disconnection' requested by customer.

So I was interested in Airtel FTTH before Jio announced new plans. Registered on the website and got the call. He tells me to pay for 6 months advance. I asked him how long will it take for installation, he said 2-3 days. I said I’ll pay if I see some wiring work, a DP box or something. He said they will install the DP box next day. I said I’ll pay after that. I called him after 2 days, he said it will take 15-20 days as they have to get a new OLT from airtel store.
