Vodafone India Hike Postpaid Tariffs By 20 Percent

By January 19th, 2012 AT 11:27 AM

Vodafone India has hiked its tariff by 20% for its postpaid users in Delhi and NCR telecom circle.

Vodafone’s postpaid subscribers who opted for per second postpaid plan will now have to pay 1.5 paisa per second (90p/min) for local calls to any other network’s phone in Delhi and STD calls to Landline phone any where in India.

While Vodafone to Vodafone local calls and STD calls to mobile phones (GSM/CDMA – 10 Digit) will remain be charged at 1.2paisa per second. Earlier the tariff was 1paisa/Sec and 1.2p/Sec for all local and STD calls to any network (off net and own net) across India.

The Indian telecom industry feels that increase in tariff is most important to sustain in the highly competitive market with almost 13 to 14 mobile service operators in all the telecom circles. According to industry sources, some other leading operators likely to follow the trend.

It is significant to say that Vodafone had last year in July hiked tariff by 20% for prepaid users in most of the circles.

So now what do you think regarding the new tariff hike for Postpaid customers ? Do you think other operators will also follow Vodafone India’s move what is your take do let us know via comments.

I think BSNL and MTNL are better. Atleast trustworthy.

no one can stop vodafone as its using old age british philosophy of divide and rule policy. its creating cartels and camps and creating infighting among them… and will slowly become no.1 and rule india. airtel and idea are politically well connected and powerful and hence using their clout to beat down competition. result: prices/tariffs will increase like anything (will be the highest when compared to ‘cost’ and ‘purchasing power parity’) and indians will be the sufferers. thats why i said, vodafone is a curse on india and indians!
