Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has unveiled beta version of portal (www.tariff.trai.gov.in) to enable consumers see tariffs of different Licensed Service Areas (LSAs) at single place. The first of its kind platform to be backed by the government aims to bring on one platform telecom tariffs offered by different operators and in different service areas.
- Objective behind unveiling this portal is to allow users to compare tariffs of different telecom operatorsand thereby enhance transparency in the industry.
- The beta portal which has been unveiled provides information about regular tariffs, special tariff vouchers, value-added service packs and promotional tariffs.
- Currently, the beta portal has been launched for the Delhi circle. TRAI will seek feedback from users after 15 days. Users can offer their comments on parameters that have been considered for tariff comparison.
