All the existing & new customers will enjoy the new tariff plan which will soon put into immediate effect. Reliance Communication will put 20-30 percent hike in tariff mostly in Commitment Plans where larger portion of company’s user base use this plan.
The different Commitment Plans offered by the company were as follows: Commitment Plan 21, Commitment Plan 45, Commitment Plan 48 and Commitment Plan 46. 1.2 paisa per second is the hiked tariff rate from 1 paisa per second in case of plans like Commitment Plan 21 and Commitment Plan 45.
Reliance Communications, Chief Executive Officer, Gurdeep Singh commented “Our headline tariff increase from 1.2 to 1.5 paisa per second in October last year did not see any traffic elasticity and there has been no fall in customer demand or change in usage patterns, as we successfully migrated our entire base to the Headline Tariff. With the Indian telecom industry now heading for a phase of consolidation, with smaller operators shutting down or scaling down their operations and easing off hyper-competitive pressures, this will help pricing power move back to serious, long-term and pan-India scale operators and positively impact profitability. We have now corrected all Commitment Plans across the country and have increased tariffs by between 20 per cent and 30 per cent.”
