I took Reliance GSM connection last october. Maily for 50p/min tariff starting from the first minute. Other operators with a similar tariff charge differently for the first STD and Local minute of the day; some of the operators charge normal STD rates for the first three minutes!!
Bonus was also that Reliance charges 50p/minute even on roaming both for receiving and calling. I use reliance very much while roaming although due to office-work I need to maintain a vodafone connection.
