Just now saw news and Kapil Sibbal announcing that no more roaming charges will be applicable Pan-India.

Effective Date: Didnt see as it was in the highlights.

If someone could let know more about it!

I was about to post the news flash, Sumit was faster.
It's the best news my ears could listen. I'm so happy. Feel like dancing.
Now the after-effect should be porting to pan-India.......

It's still part of the proposal of the New DRAFT Telecom policy. Not implemented yet. Final implementation date after revisions / modifications if any is expected to be around December 2011.

Don't know what will be the aftermath once this policy is implemented.

Truly One-India.

In addition to no roaming charges (which is free incoming while roaming), the policy also talked about numbers which are zone free, which means one would be able to retain the same number even while switching zones! Truly pan India numbers in future. Cant wait for that to happen!

Good friends don't let you do stupid things.......... alone

Its a Proposal. I hope there will be discussions over it & I personally feel most companies are not going to favour 'All India Free Roaming'. Specially AirTel, Vodafone, Idea due to loss in Revenues.

There won't be much effect on BSNL, RCOM since they already operates Pan-India Network of their own.

I mean to say now onwards if no roaming, then the numbers will be valid for all india, and STD call charges also needs to be removed.

According to ET, NDTV etc, the operators will take a hit of Rs 2500 to Rs 3000 crores if roaming rates are nullified.

They will find newer ways to fleece you to recover more than 4 to 6 times the above amount. And out of this, you all know who will get a cut!!!

Yes you guessed it right, Uncle will make some moolah out of this proposal. And No Anna will be able to touch him even with a barge-pole.

Ha Ha and all you folks are getting very happy about no roaming charges and PAN India MNP?
