There must be some rationality regarding the validity of data packs. BSNL has now got one step further than private telcos in fixing the validity of data packs. Not only it makes difficult to remember the expiry date but also it hurts the customers in the form of deduction from main balance (if one keeps it) after the validity is over.
Unfortunately organisation like TRAI & DOT are too busy in fixing the spectrum price so that they can squeeze the milking cow as much as possible leaving the customers left in the lurch.
