Customer Complaint Web

Bangalore: ‘’ a website that let customers to raise un-moderate complaints against companies, products and services has been shut down this week following a Government ban. Reports from Times of India say that the access to the webpage was blocked by the Internet service providers including Airtel and MTNL.   

Two weeks ago the Indian Government had passed an order that demands all Internet Service Providers (ISP) to block the sites containing adult contents and that provides file storage facility. ISPs are using an upgraded method to block the websites this time as the previous technology used was weak and easy to outflank. The end users are educated that the website was blocked as per judiciary orders.  

However, the reason why website ‘‘which provided a platform for common man to raise his complaints against a company or product, was curbed is still unclear. It is assumed that complaints filed with the Department Of Telecom may be the reason for the closure of the webpage. Neither the Government is expected to provide an explanation nor the ISPs, as they are asked to follow the orders bow headed.    

The URL is currently displaying message, ‘Access to website blocked.’ However, according to the Times of India, the webpage pulled up when tried to access it from a location outside the country using proxy server.
