Lol same thing happened to me three years back. Since I was out of the warranty period i have to pay for the router. I paid for the type one router but got type 2 router but It took more than a month to get a new router.MY suggestion here is visiting the BSNL office daily and annoy them till they provide the router or to complaint to the nodal officer.

I am not sure lightning damage is covered under warranty. You can try talking to SDE and request prompt action.

Legally, damages due to "Acts of God" are not covered under any warranty. Thus if there is an earthquake and a tree falls on your car and damages it, you can't go to your car dealer and ask for free repair or replacement. The only thing that can come to your rescue in such a case is insurance (if it covers such calamities). Bet the modem wouldn't have been insured?
