According to Down Detector India, customers are facing issues with voice calls and mobile internet. 

The issue will take approximately three hours to be resolved, Vi Customer Care informed in a tweet.

According to an official statement from Vodafone, the issue has been caused by flooding in key areas due to excessive rains.  “Heavy rain in Pune has resulted in flooding of some areas including one of our key sites in the city. This has caused partial disruption in services for some customers. Our technical team is working dedicatedly to fully restore services soon. We regret the inconvenience caused to our customers,” VIL told BusinessLine.
