Last 18 months have been very interesting for the telecom industry in India. Ever since Reliance Jio made its entry into the Indian market, a fierce data war has been going. After Jio, Airtel and BSNL, now even Idea Cellular has joined this battle. On Idea Cellular website, the telco has announced a new offer under which it will provide 1.5 GB data every day. Idea has announced a new plan priced at Rs 696, which offers the users 1.5 GB of data per day.

          It is obvious that after entry of R-Jio in the telecom services market, all telecom service providers have become aware that if they do not offer compe ive tariffs they will lose a significant number of new customers. But I have one major problem with tariff plans of Idea, BSNL and Airtel. Customers have to be told the time frame (if there is any) within which they have to avail of the new plans. This should be done while announcing every new tariff plan. That is so because if a customer is already having a plan whose expiry is some three weeks away, he/she cannot take advantage of new plan till expiry of the existing plan. It should not so happen that new plan is withdrawn by the time he/she wants to recharge!
