Reliance Communications (formerly Reliance Infocomm) Chairman Anil Ambani was summoned on Friday by a city consumer forum to personally appear before it on August 30 in connection with a complaint, accusing the telephone major of "unfair trade practices".

The summon was sent on the basis of a complaint lodged by a resident of the national capital, accusing the company of fraudulently de-activating his mobile phone connection taken under the 'Khazana' promotional scheme.

The District Consumer Forum (North) also directed the company to activate the phone connection with immediate effect.

The forum also said that if the respondent fails to comply with either the summon or the direction on re-activating the phone, all bank accounts of the company would be frozen.
