Mobile users get set to shell out money on your calls as major telcos are planning a tariff hike by at least 20- 30%. All these just to pay off the debts they have incurred. This is surely shocking for mobile phone users as all major telecom service providers had slashed tariffs recently.
One major telecom provider resorting to this move is Bharti Airtel which is considering a 20-30% hike to stay afloat. Mobile service providers such as Vodafone, BSNL, Reliance, Uninor are among the telcos to resort to a tariff hike. A source from Reliance Communications stated that “all the operators apart from the top three service providers are losing around 1000 crore in a quarter and the debts run upto Rs 275000 crore. Thus tariff hike is inevitable”.
A Uninor representative has issued a statement saying that “customers can bear higher tariff costs”. Some telcos squarely blame the Government saying that the Government fines them for violations they did not commit
Whatever the reason, the mobile customers have to bear the brunt of higher mobile tariffs and also the debts incurred by the respective service providers.
