Tata Docomo Revised National Roaming Rates As Per TRAI’s Order

Tata Docomo has revised its National Roaming rates to comply with TRAI’s, new tariff structures for voice calls and text messages, a move that would result in a reduction of roaming charges.

The new tariff structure is effective July 1, even though the telecom regulator TRAI said that there will be no free national roaming as of now.

Incoming calls while on roaming on own network would be 1.25paisa per second while Roaming within Tata Docomo network and Roaming on any other network, incoming calls would have an upper limit of 75 paise per minute .

While that for outgoing Local and STD calls would be charged 1.5paisa per second with in Tata Docomo network and  Rs.1/min and Rs 1.50 per minute for local and STD calls while Roaming on any other network.

This compares with the earlier base tariff of Rs 1.40 per minute (set by TRAI in 2007) for outgoing local calls and Rs 2.40 per minute for outgoing STD calls. On incoming, it has been fixed at 75 paise per minute (from Rs. 1.75 per minute) and for Re 1 for outgoing local SMS-es (from earlier Rs 1.50). Incoming SMS will remain free of charge.
