TATA DOCOMO Offers Per-Second Billing for Roaming Across India

By November 22nd, 2009 AT 6:05 PM

docomoTata Docomo the GSM brand of Tata Teleservices Limited, today slashed its roaming tariff  introducing per-second billing for all calls made or received while ‘roaming’ across the country, at its existing tariff of 1 paisa per second for both pre-paid and post-paid subscribers.

From Monday, while roaming, subscribers can make calls across India at 1 paisa per second, across all 15 Circles where Tata Docomo has launched GSM services, regardless of which network or type of phone the call is made to.Furthermore, incoming calls while roaming will also be charged on a per-second basis, at 1 paisa per second. With Tata Docomo set to launch its GSM services pan-India this year, this game-changing roaming option will be available across the country.

“We are delighted to announce yet another industry-defying offer to our subscribers—a transparent and pack-free roaming tariff plan of 1 paisa per second for all incoming & outgoing calls, both local and long distance, to all networks and types of phones (mobile or landline). TATA DOCOMO subscribers will need no special packs or pay any hidden charges to avail this offer,” Mr Deepak Gulati, President, TATA DOCOMO, said. “This is in keeping with our promise to offer innovative and honest services to our subscribers across the country, he added.”

“When a subscriber is roaming, most telecom operators in India charge a minimum of 50-60 paise per minute, even when the call duration is less than a minute. Under the TATA DOCOMO roaming offer, subscribers will be charged only for what he or she uses—at 1 paisa per second. For instance, a 15-second call made or received while roaming will elicit a charge of 15 paise only—not up to Re 1 on a per minute basis, as is the industry norm,” Mr Gulati said.

“The roaming value proposition offered by TATA-DOCOMO is a unique and revolutionary idea which symbolizes the spirit of simplicity, innovation and inventive acumen. This offer for all our subscribers who roam across the country is another moment of triumph for the TATA DOCOMO subscriber—and we firmly believe it will create a paradigm shift in the overall telecom experience for the customer and provide a service that is refreshingly different,” Mr Gurinder Singh Sandhu, Head, Marketing, TATA DOCOMO, said. “We have always believed that in a market that is cluttered with many operators and confusing options, it is our simplicity and transparency that will liberate subscribers,” Mr Sandhu added.
