New rates will apply immediately as remember these are ceiling rates and nobody can charge more than this under any circumstances. Will be charged for O/G calls as per your plan voucher in home circle. When on roaming under BSNL/MTNL network 1.3p/sec all O/G calls and incoming free, while roaming under other network which is generally rare or after expiry of your roaming stv, will be charged 45p for incoming and 80p/min Rs1.15 for local and std

New rates will apply only after the expiry of the current booster pack.
