No answer from Mumbai

I’ve been having problems printing tickets for a Virgin Train I’m travelling on today, so I called their call centre.  After going through the menu pick system, I got a message in an Indian voice stating:

"Due to technical difficulties, we are unable to answer your call at the moment."

I wondered if this is due to the unrest in Mumbai, call centre capital of the world and, if so, is anyone experiencing similar issues today?

    There was a huricane in Chennai, where a lot of call centers are based. That was probably the cause rather then the terrorist attacks. We had the same issues with our service center.
