All telecom networks other than BSNL now made it compulsory for all their customers to recharge every month. Each user have to recharge regularly to keep their mobile number active. It is now only 2 months passed when Vodafone Idea and Airtel decided to impose the new minimum recharge mandatory regulation over their customers. Now, the telecom started to stop the outgoing call and data facility of the users. Airtel minimum recharge for validity starts from Rs. 25 where as Vodafone minimum recharge 35 pack also available.
It was Idea initially set the validity date of most users as of December 7th and started to stop the outgoing call facility of their customers. Then Vodafone and Airtel also started to block the outgoing facility of the customers. As per the new rule each user have to choose any of the validity recharge pack to keep their service active.
If any user failed to do the recharge, then the outgoing call and data facility of that number will be blocked temporarily. Each user will get a grace period of 15 days to recharge then. During this time, incoming call facility will be available. Again if the user didn’t recharge in the 15 days time, then the incoming call facility also will get barred. All the service will get restored once the recharge is done. However, the telecom companies didn’t mention whether they disconnect the number if user didn’t do the recharge even after 15 days.
As per the TRAI’s statement, if the balance remained in the account of any user is above the minimum recharge pack, then the telecom company cannot disconnect the mobile number even if they didn’t do any recharge.
