Vodafone slashed national roaming tariffs, special roaming tariff plans are introduced

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.
