I had earlier posted in a forum about smses that Reliance might reduce the call rates and sms rates to hurt the Gsm operators as to pack a punch at the right time.

I stand vindicated today.

The reduction is for On-net local only. Hope there is no compensating increase in Off-Net charges or Inter-circle charges

Reliance has introduced Rs. 55 STV in Delhi.

It offers local calls to mobiles and landlines both on net and offnet@ 0.50/min.

Idea charges Rs. 71 for the same benefits in Delhi.I have no clue about Airtel and Hutch.

Secondly Idea has silently increased the rates for the followings in Delhi:

1.Special recharge for UP and Bihar

STD calls to mobiles in Up and Bihar@1.00

STD calls to LL in Up and Bihar@1.00/30sec

Earlier Rs. 38/month

Now Rs.52/month

2.Special recharge for STD calls

All STD mobile calls@1.32/min

Earlier Rs.34/month

Now Rs. 49/month

Hutch on the other hand is advertising its BONUS cards on TV.

The truth behind these is that the validity of these cards have been reduced to 15 days.

So it might seem as they have reduced the rates but actually they have increased the rates as one has to recharge twice in a month for the same facility earlier available for lesser charges.
