TRAI has reduced ceilings for calls and SMS tariff in roaming, to be implemented w.e.f 1-07-13 by all operators across the country. TRAI has decided that STVs and combo vouchers which were allowed till now only for home circle can be permitted for roaming also. TRAI also mandated two types of free national roaming plans to be provided by all operators.
Revised and existing ceilings for voice and SMS:
|Tariff||Existing Ceiling(Rs)||Revised Ceiling(Rs)|
|Outogoing local SMS||no ceiling||1.0|
|Outogoing STD SMS||no ceiling||1.50|
When compared with Nestham roaming tariff, only incoming call rate(Re1/Min) is higher than the, to be revised incoming call rate(75ps/Min). So AP BSNL customers will get benefit only in incoming call rates by 25ps/Min while in roaming from 1st July.
