Who Is This Ringing Bell Selling 4G Phones At Rs 3000?

India’s mobile phone industry got a shock of its kind on Monday morning when Ringing Bell, a hitherto unknown company, announced to sell 4G smartphones at the cheapest price – a mere Rs 2999. The company flooded some of the large mainline newspapers with full spread advertisements proclaiming itself of having ‘the most affordable products’ in the mobile world.

If this company could able to offer 4G smartphones at this price, undoubtedly, Bell brand smartphones would be the most affordable smartphone in the country.

But the industry is in shock. They are shocked thinking about two things -one, whether this is possible to sell 4G smartphones at this price, or two, is this company a fraud?

“It’s not possible looking at the BOM price prevalent in the market to sell a 4G phone for this price,” said an industry expert who did not want to be named. “There is something fishy here,” he added.

A little probe into this company offers something to think about.

The company Bell is registered as ‘Ringing Bells Pvt Ltd’ on September 16, 2015 which means the company is just 4 months old now. According to records available at ministry of Corporate Affairs, Ringing Bells or Bell has three directors – Mohit Kumar Goel, Sushma Devi and Rajesh Kumar.

However, these directors, according to the industry, are unknown to the mobile phone business.

Ringing Bells has a paid up capital of Rs 6,000,000 and authorized capital of Rs 10,000,000.

Ringing Bells is planning to launch its products on February 12 at Delhi Gymkhana and the products would be available for distributorship from the next day. The distributors meet is planned at Unitech Gold Park in Noida.

The company has advertised about three mobile phones, one smart and two feature phones. The smartphone Bell Smart 101 is priced at Rs 2,999 and the feature phones, Bell Master and Bell 4U, are priced at Rs 999 and Rs 799 respectively. Besides the company also has another product, a power bank, priced at Rs 399.

Ringing Bells has offered its products to be booked first by making the entire price of the product which will then be delivered to the customer free of cost.

A company executive said the phones will be delivered withing February 25th.

      It is a fraud comp.

    • Debasish Chakraborty says:

      Company contacted me via mobile and they promised to delivery my mobile in due time. Now due to server problem they are unable to send any confirmation. All are requested not to call in my above mentioned phone no. It is not Ringing Bell mobile contact no. If you have any query about Bell phone go to their web site and try to collect information from them.

      I also purchased the Smart 101 4G Mobile Phone on 8th February by paying online for Rs.2999/=. But, sorry to say till today no response either through SMS or e-mail from the company side confirming either receipt of payment or delivery of the materials. My Mobile No.9474694847.

      • Sajal Kumar Nayak, Asansol, West Bengal says:

        The above mobile number is exclusively mine. Requested not to call me rather visit ringing bells website to contact them either over phone or mail.

    • Santanu Ghosh says:

      Same thing happens to me. there is no option of tracking the product after dispatch. i have doubt, why they are not selling through renowned online shopping websites.

      At least, company should flash confirmation page with order no. , expected date of delivery etc. just after payment is made.

  26. I want to buy smart 101 but i can’t repalce my order so plz you help me

  27. I ordered smart 101 phone, made the payment, but then it got redirected to an error page, after refreshing a couple of times, it got redirected to ringing bells website, with a successful transaction message. And i got the confirmation mail, and the confirmation sms as well. For those of you who have not got the confirmation mail, your transaction may not have completed after payment, i.e. you may not have been directed to successful transaction page(which says- Thank You for your order!). This might probably be because the server used by these people may not be good enough to handle high traffic.

  28. sir how can i buy this Ringing Mobile phone because i like its feature AND PRISE IS VERY LOW. My contact number is 9996844445. I am waiting for yoour response
