#Fail TataDocomo.com Forgets To Renew Domain; It’s Expired!
It is sometimes really surprising that large companies make such a rudimentary mistake. If you visit Tata Docomo URL (TataDocomo.com) right now you will find that Tata Docomo domain has expired. This is what it shows right now! [hat Tip: Amey Bansod]
The domain name was valid until 22nd of April 2014, and because there was no renewal done, the domain has expired.
Now, it is currently in the 1 month grace period, so Tata Docomo can obviously renew it during that time as they have the first right to renew before it becomes available to the world.
Here is the Whois data that will clearly show the expiry:

Very recently Yatra.com folks had forgotten to renew their domain, and there are numerous other examples where companies have completely forgotten to renew their domain names.
This bring forth a very important point; Who is responsible for such a thing?
