Aircel hikes data tariff in Mumbai circle, other operators to follow suit?

Aircel has hiked its base data tariff in Mumbai circle from the previous 10p/10KB to 15P/10KB. This revision in the 2G tariff is currently implemented only in the Mumbai circle and the chances are that it might be done on a PAN India basis pretty soon.
