COAI Director General, Rajan Mathews welcomed TRAI decision to bring CEOs of telecom industry to the table to discuss matters on the regulatory agenda for the year going forward. “TRAI has picked this issue of tarrifs because it is roiling the markets at present.

The prevalent guidelines on promotional offers are limited to the eligibility condition and the opening and closing dates of such offers. They are silent on issues like the number of promotional offers that can be offered in a calendar year and the repetition of offers.
