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.

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!
