Contact Kim Jong Un, then He will do everything you want.

Likely correct. Ideally the installation can be done without any drilling, they use nail based hooks to route the cable if required. You may need drilling for hanging your router or something, which is your personal preference. Considering the covid times, they may be instructed to keep their visit to minimal time and wind up. Even if not instructed, they may feel the same personally.

Things may have worked out if you requested. In any case, there is no need for the person to carry drilling machine for this installation.

Airtel have all wierd rules like in my house they removed existing broadband cable only then installed new one.
Also were insisting on removing tatasky cable to install airtel. It will too much so I refused installing airtel TV after installation of airtel Fibre where they were offering smart box for free.

If you are not a heavy user downloading 50gb games / pirated stuff everyday then stick to the 499 plan which is faster compared to jiofi.

You might be subscribed to 999.After 1 week shift to 499 and you get extra credit and your expiry will extend by 3 more months.

Earlier they did run another campaign. Surrender any competitor’s 3g/4g dongle, and get airtel 4G wifi Hotspot wala for free. The condition is that bill/settlement letter from competitor need to be submitted along with the dongle.

Why argue?
Wait for a week, let the reports get filled in, then call CC for plan change.
If you hasten your router charges will be added while its free in 999 plan.

All the better if they have changed their policy.

Buyers do remember airtel is working like the next bsnl. So be careful and don’t take them for granted.

As you have already got your answer, it is normal practice for installation people to ask you to arrange for drilling if required. I had to do it myself, 2.5 years back when got my broadband connection. 
Update about the speed you are getting, once everything is setup
