First of all, do you actually owe the money? Or is it incorrect charges?

right. never a good idea to have unpaid bills with companies. they can of course take the legal route and take you to court which usually does not happen. but if you did not dispute the charges and just decide to ignore them, you are just asking for trouble.

They wont take legal action as far as i know. Once we were billed 8000rs falsely. they tried bullying us. We didn't budge.atlast they settled for 2000rs after 4 months of torture. We paid the amount because we were at some fault coz we believed the agent guy

They billed me 7k-10k straight for 3 months, was on a limited plan back then. Fourth month, I don't use the internet, and surprise surprise, 7k yet again. End of my association with them, settled for 500 bucks. 2 years later, they come knocking on my door again (at my new address), requesting me to subscribe to airtel once again, even promising me my old number, but whatever ... ;)Anyway, if you don't owe them anything, I don't see any reason to budge.
