By April 30th, 2015 AT 5:23 PM

Vodafone confirmed slashing of national roaming tariffs today, following TRAI’s amendment to reduce the ceiling charges. In the tariffs released today, 40 percent of the incoming call rates will be reduced, making roaming more affordable to its customers. The local and STD call charges while roaming are slashed at 20 percent and 23 percent respectively. The text messages too are 75 percent lesser compared to the present charges. The new tariffs will come into effect from May 1, 2015.

During roaming, for all outgoing local calls, a ceiling of 80 paise/minute has been fixed from the earlier Rs. 1/min. For STD calls, it will be Rs 1.15/min from the earlier Rs. 1.5/min. For incoming calls on roaming, a ceiling of 45 paise/minute has been fixed from the earlier 75 paise/minute.

Similarly, for local text messages, it is 25 paise compared to the current Rs. 1. For STD text messages, 38 paise will be charged, instead of the Rs. 1. 50 earlier.

Moreover, the telecom operator has introduced Special Roaming Tariff Plan (SRTP) aiming at frequent travelers. Both post-paid and pre-paid customers can avail the plan. Telecom Talk had earlier reported the news.
