The Kashmir Valley- The heaven of India has now become a living hell for its residents after it faced the worst floods in the last 60 years. The entire state has been cut-off from India due to water logment and disruption in telecommunication systems. Aircel, one the most prominent telecom operators in J&K has come to the rescue to the people and also to the other telcos operating in the valley.

Aircel has offered free calls to its subscribers in the state for 2 days- 10th and 11th Sep, let subscribers from other operators to latch on to its network by after agreeing to opening intra-circle roaming agreements.

And now, Aircel is allowing its subscribers all over the India to locate their dear ones in J&K, and too for free of cost.

This VAS (Value Added Service) will let any Aircel user in India to find the last and nearest location of their friends and family members exact up to latitudes and longitudes. The best part is that you don’t have to register in advance or fill out any unnecessary form for registering for this service. This is very helpful as nobody would want to waste time in filling out useless information while their near and dear ones are stranded in one of the worst floods in the history of J&K.

Here is how you can locate your loved ones in J&K:

SMS LOCATE <J&K Aircel mobile number> to 54654 from Aircel mobile belonging to any circle across India.

FREE Missed Call Alert Service From Aircel

Aircel is also offering free missed call alert service to its J&K subscribers to notify them of any calls that have missed while they were not reachable.

It is very wise of Aircel to offer such services for free when they were required the most. Other operators are shelling out crores of rupess on TV commercials and internet ads. I also feel that post the Kashmir-floods crisis, the user base of Aircel is going to witness a huge growth. After all people are people, they will obvisouly go for any brand who they believe will treat its customers courtesouly and kindly during difficult times.
