Idea Cellular Extends Black-out Days to Voice Calls too Starting 2013

Aditya Birla promoted Idea Cellular has informed that now voice call rates will be as per with base tariff (ranging from 1.5p/sec to Rs 2/minute) on the Black out days.

As of now most operators charges SMS at base tariff – Re 1 for local and Rs 1.50 for National SMS on the black out days. But it seems Idea Cellular really crossed the limit and extended this anti-consumer policy on voice calls too.

In 2013 Idea will charge for voice and SMS at per base tariff on 1st January, 14th February, 4th August as Friendship day, Diwali – 2nd November and 31st December.


I must say this is really bad move by Idea Cellular, and expecting Airtel and Vodafone will follow soon. TRAI must take care of this as immediately as possible.

Please note it is only applicable for TN, GUJRAT, Bihar, Delhi,UP Circle.
