General News Trai extends validity of special tariff vouchers to a year
#1
Advertisement
NEW DELHI: The regulator had issued a draft regulation in July suggesting that a year-long validity could be beneficial for marginal consumers, first-time users and price-sensitive consumers. The rule has been notified now.

"After undertaking a consultation process TRAI has notified the 10th Amendment to the TCPR permitting the maximum validity of 365 days for data only STVs instead of prevailing maximum validity of 90 days," the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India said, while amending the Telecom Consumers Protection (Tenth Amendment) Regulations, 2016.

The regulator had said that many consumers, who have recently begun using wireless Internet, consume much less data and therefore, a significant portion of the volume of data offered in the data-packs subscribed by them remains unutilised by the time the expiry date of data-pack arrives.

It had argued, siding with consumers, that effective price per MB of data turns out to be much higher for consumers who forfeit their unutilised data.

This is likely to change now, as telcos would now be able to issue data specific tariff vouchers that will be valid for a maximum of 365 days.
