Free From roaming Charges – One nation – One Number

It’s really good news for us because we are going to be free from roaming charges. Yes, Today the Government approved a new telecom policy which targets to stop roaming charges, moreover relaxing Internet telephony rules.

The National Telecom Policy 2012 which replaces the old rules was sanctioned by the cabinet headed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The Telecom Minister Kapil sibal said that, under the new policy, the Government plans to remove roaming charge. Users can hold the same number even in other states.

Number movability is going to benefit for customers because they can retain the same number even if they migrate from one telecom circle to another. But, Deloitte Haskins & Sells Partner Hemant Joshi said that stopping roaming charges would be destructive in short term for operators because they would lose roaming profits.

Though, in the long run, as usage would escalate with no roaming charges might offset the revenue loss caused to the operators, he added.

The NTP will also separate the spectrum and telecom licenses, against the current practice of bundling them, and will charge a market-derived price for the airwaves.

It is really good no need to change sim cards from state to state. One Nation One Number.
