Trai mandates telcos to provide pre-paid mobile recharge plans with 30-day validity

On Thursday, regulators Trai said that telecom operators would have to provide recharge plans with a validity of 30 days for pre-paid customers.

“Every telecom service provider shall offer at least one plan voucher, one special tariff voucher and one combo voucher having a validity of thirty days,” Trai said in a notification.

The notification mandates mobile phone service providers to provide one plan voucher, one special tariff voucher and one combo voucher, which shall be renewable on the same day of every month.
