‘Lifetime Validity’ offers: How long is Life Time?
- Reliance asserts its superiority due to longer remaining license Period.
- Existing Life Time Incoming Product of Reliance offers longer validity of 15 years at the same
- Launches New 10 Year Incoming Product for wider Choice
Lucknow,, April 2, 2006: Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has
recently issued a clarification that ‘Lifetime Validity’ product should be valid till the license period of the
mobile operator. Reliance’s Life Time Product offers its customers a superior value of up to 15 years of free
incoming period as it has longer remaining period of License than other leading mobile operators. To further supplement
its already superior offerings, Reliance is launching a new 10 year incoming product to offer customers more choice.
The new 10-year validity product from Reliance is comparable to the ‘Lifetime
Validity’ product offered by most other mobile operators. The ‘Lifetime Validity’ products offered by mobile
operators who had received their license in 1994 are valid only till 2014, which is less than 10 years from now. In contrast,
the ‘Lifetime Validity’ product of Reliance Communications, is valid till 2021 which is almost 15 years from now.
Announcing the initiative, S P Shukla, President – Wireless, Reliance Communications
said: “This new product at Rs 795 offers a 10 year incoming calling facility. This is almost as much as the Lifetime
validity product of most operators. And in conjunction with the flexibility to choose any tariff rather than being tied down
to any high tariffs, this product offers superior value to our subscribers.”
This Recharge option of Rs 795– currently available with E-recharge - comes
with Rs 25 talk time pre-loaded. Customers needing to make outgoing calls occasionally can recharge with top-up micro-recharges
starting from Rs 10 and make outgoing calls at the calling rates of Rs 1.99 for a local call and Rs 2.99 for all other calls
And just as in the Lifetime validity option of Rs 995, a subscriber loading with
Rs 795 recharge option will not be bound by any particular tariff plan for a lifetime. With Reliance India Mobile, he will
have the option to choose from the company’s wide range of prepaid vouchers and tariff plans as per his requirement.
The subscriber also has the option of loading the Lifetime Validity Recharge option
at Rs 995 and get incoming call facility up to 15 years.
