I assume they would issue you a cheque? It should come in a few weeks I assume. At least that's how Vodafone and Reliance Communications processed my refunds.

@Sushubh Even I had 800Rs pending as airtel security deposit but other than -868Rs on bill I haven't got anything from them. Do I need to put request to get refund ? as I never got refund automatically.


No experience with airtel. But have received refunds for Reliance Broadband, Vodafone Postpaid. BSNL too but only after complaining through pgportal.


No more hopes on jio.
Somebody should take them to court.

Dear Gurunandana,

I understand your concern regarding your Postpaid bill.

I am unable to view the details of your Postpaid account due to conversion from Postpaid to prepaid.

Security deposit paid at the time of opting for a Postpaid plan or paid at the time of changing the Postpaid Plan is refundable

It will be adjusted against the outstanding or paid out in form of a cheque/e-refund at the time of number cancellation or migrating from Postpaid to Prepaid

It may take up to 60 days from the date of disconnection, for the customer to receive the refund cheque/e-refund

Following rules will apply for refund:

If a Paid plan is attached and the customer has paid the first Postpaid bill, the security deposit will be refunded after applicable adjustments

If the customer is on a promotional plan/free plan, during the offer period, wherein No bill has been generated, and the customer opts for disconnection, then the paid Security Deposit will be forfeited (No Refund applicable)

We appreciate your patience and understanding in this regard.

For any further queries, please write to us at

Thank You

Well, You really thought that they would refund, This guys will make your shoes go rugged and even after that there's no guarantee of refund.

Yes I did think as I have received refunds correctly from Airtel and Vodafone.
Yes Vodafone was a little mess. But Airtel did a bank transfer on request instead of refund by cheque.


I assume they would issue you a cheque? It should come in a few weeks I assume. At least that's how Vodafone and Reliance Communications processed my refunds.
Yes sir,
Refunds are processed by cheque mostly unless requested.
The cheque reaches us by post.
Also the worst part is they give the disconnected number as contact number.
I really don't know if this is done on purpose or some foolish system.
I had disconnected my Vodafone number.
And courier executive went back once as the door was locked and as number was disconnected he was getting number not valid when called.
