Exclusive: Reliance communications starts charging roaming between Maharashtra and Mumbai circle

By September 6th, 2015 AT 6:24 PM

Reliance communications, India’s 4th largest telecom operator has started charging roaming tariff between Maharashtra and Mumbai circles which it used to treat as paired circles previously. This move seems to have been influenced by the ongoing trend in the market where operators like Tata Docomo started charging roaming tariff between Kolkata and West Bengal circles.

There are thousands of subscribers who currently have connection of one circle and frequent to the neighboring circle, for example there are people who live in Mumbai and work in Pune and do a daily commute between the two cities, these will be amongst those most affected.

As confirmed by customer care executive the changes have been brought into force since yesterday 5th September 2015 in accordance with the guidelines laid down by TRAI. Customers who have been affected by this move are advised to recharge with the ‘One India One Rate’ STV which will give free incoming calls for seamless roaming between the two circles, this applies to both CDMA as well as GSM subscribers of both circles, the details of the roaming STVs are given below.
