Couple of days back, TRAI (Telecom regulatory authority of India) imposes a new rule to limit the sending SMS limit to just 100 per day. This changes was actually welcomed by all general users and probably a nightmare for all promotional companies and companies which relies on SMS marketing. Anyways, the rule has been imposed and some changes were made afterwards which we will talk later. Here is another big and some good news for Indian telecom users, Government of India has decided to remove all the roaming charges from all Telecom Networks which will make the perfect policy of ‘One Nation, One License’.
The policy has been accepted as well as approved by the Government of India in relevance with Kapil Sibal, the central minister of communications and information technology, who will soon unveiled all the drafted Telecom Policy of 2011.
The policy will now allow all the telecom Operators to operate phone calls across the entire country with a single license as opposite to the circle-specific licenses which were in place till now in the country. And as a result of that, the Indian Government has also removed all the roaming charges on all the inter-state calls.
While in addition to that, there is another good news for the public, Inter-circle mobile number portability will also come into place into the Indian economy which will mean that you will be now allowed to Port any number for any operator across the entire country in India. This feature of extra-state mobile number portability was not allowed and accepted before.
The New TRAI Policy will figure some more of the following Highlights
- A new Policy that will bring integration of all telecom operators.
