Around June 2014, I had a conversion of my BSNL Pune number to Postpaid for certain reasons but in a month or two I felt it wasn’t necessary and hence turned back on my decision. As per TRAI directions within 60 days the security deposit had to be returned. The security deposit indeed came as speed post to my PG address and my roomie collected but it was not cash-able check because of the following reasons:

  1. I was in Chicago then
  2. The name was wrongly spelt including father’s name making it some weird beguile Payee name.

I tried to escalate back and after a long debate BSNL sent me a new cheque to my Chennai address. Thank you BSNL.
