Call drop menace in India is posing trouble to the mobile phone subscribers and the regulatory body, TRAI has announced issuing new set of service quality benchmarks soon.

Grameenphone, with the highest rate of call drops in Bangladesh, came up with this offer after the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission toughened rules on quality of service, including setting a limit for call drops at two per cent, with stiff fines for violations. Banglalink, the country’s second largest mobile operator, has followed suit with its ‘Minute back on call drop’ offer.
