One-Stop Tariff Portal for Indian Consumers Launched

Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has launched a beta version of a website that will allow comparison of mobile tariffs of all operators at one roof helping to bring transparency and ease.

At the first stage, the beta version has gone live for Delhi circle, and users can click the link to compare mobile tariffs.

 

This is an effort to bring all information at one platform related to mobile tariffs that can help users perform comparison easily”, said SK Gupta, TRAI Sectetary in his media interaction.

 

However, the tariff comparison portal does not include spot offers given to consumers by telecom companies in an effort to retain their subscribership. Spot plans offered to individual subscribers are banned by the telecom authority and as such are not legal for companies to offer.

To testify the viability and convenience of tariff comparison website, TRAI has granted a 15 days limit for consumers as well as stakeholders so they can get accustomed to the look and feel of the website and submit their feedback regarding the same.

Only after reviews from the user, TRAI would incorporate more features into the website including the addition of wider circles and tariff operators to perform the comparison. The data available on the website can be downloaded too as of now for the end convenience of the user.

However, the tariff comparison platform does not include spot offers given by companies to retain their customers to subscribership. Spot plans offered to individual subscribers are prohibited by the telecom authority and as such are not legal for companies to offer.
