Indian operators raise prices, reduce time on prepaid offers

Thursday 22 November 2012 | 15:34 CET | News
Indian mobile operators Bharti airtel, Idea Cellular, Vodafone, Tata Teleservices and Aircel have begun a round of reducing talktime and raising prices on various prepaid vouchers, reports The Economic Times. Over the last 15-20 days, mobile operators have subtly tweaked offers in various categories of discount vouchers. Airtel has reduced the validity to 60 days from 90 days of a discount voucher available in Delhi costing INR 28, which allows subscribers to make national long-distance calls at INR 0.012 per second. In Maharashtra, Idea has increased the price of a discount voucher to INR 97 from INR 72; this allows users to call at INR 0.012 per second for a period of 90 days. Vodafone in Kolkata has reduced the number of free minutes to 55 from 65 on a bundle valid for five days costing INR 22. Tata Teleservices has tweaked a similar 'STD seconds pack' costing INR 196 in Karnataka, where it reduced the number of included seconds to 33,000 from 36,000 over a month. An Airtel spokesperson said there is definitely room to reduce low value and free minutes in all markets across the country, given the state of the telecommunication industry. Vodafone, Idea Cellular, Tata Teleservices and Aircel did not respond to e-mailed queries.
