Simply Reliance – New Era in Indian Telecom Industry

October 6th, 2009

Reliance Communications, telecom arm of the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (R-ADAG), has unveiled a new tariff plan under which it has slashed all call rates to 50 paise per minute.

The tariff plan named as “Simply Reliance” will offer local, STD and landline calls to network of any service provider at flat 50 paise per minute which will be available for GSM as well as CDMA users, whether postpaid or prepaid, of the company.

Apart from this, the SMS facility will also be available at 50 paise per message to any network under this plan.

The move comes close on the heels of other telecom major’s – Tata and Bharti Airtel – launching per second billing plan (Tata DoCoMo) and 50 paise a minute for calls on local and long-distance connections within the country for Airtel networks (Bharti Airtel).

Meanwhile, if some industry watchers are to be believed the lower tariff rates are likely to hit the profitability of the telecom operators badly and which may result in lower valuations for these players.
