Airtel Scam! ITR related. Expert help required


So, I don’t know how many of you are aware of this, but, sometime ago airtel launched its ‘airtel Bank’ services.
It was okay, but they did something underhanded. They opened a savings account for every(probably) user they had ‘without’ their consent. Also I was also one of the victims.
This was big news, it was in the papers and T.Vs.

Problem- In ITR you need to show all bank accounts associated with you,

  1. The savings accouny under my name opened by airtel against my, will, feels ILLEGAL. So I didn’t report it in the ITR.

  2. Also the mobile number with which the savings account was associated, I had it teleported to Jio. Now I cannot even login into the Myairtel app, to see the account details. So I don’t even possess the savings account info.

What should my course of action be?


@Akarsh kindly contact the airtel payments bank customer care and confirm that ur account is still open, if its not yet closed, tell them to close it.

You need to declare Bank details you have opened and if someone opened without your information , you can always inform the tax authorities to take details directly unless you have done financial transactions.
