Uninor the most talked about new entrant in the telecom industry had its chief appeal among the masses for the generous talktime it offered on topup vouchers.
While other operators offer a maximum of full talktime recharge topup denominations, often divided into core talktime and promotional or on net talktime with limited usage duration, Uninor offered a wide range of extra talktime topup options whereby the user got more talktime than what he payed for and that too complete core talktime with lifetime validity.
The chief attraction of this scheme was the Rs.500 recharge denomination which gave the user Rs.600 worth of talktime which implies a 20% bonus talktime. Recently the company revised this voucher in Mumbai and is now giving only 500 full talktime with no bonus.
The company has yet not informed the consumers about this change in scheme, infact the official website still displays Rs.600 talktime on Rs.500 topup.
To confirm the change the user can dial 50001 or contact customer care on 121 and inquire about the revised benefits of the voucher.
