Following other major telecom companies in India, Tata Docomo also implemented minimum recharge compulsory for all its prepaid customers. Though the telecom company is on its way to Merge with Airtel, but now, they also going to implement the mandatory minimum recharge as did by Airtel, Vodafone and Idea.
From now all the prepaid subscribers of Tata Docomo needs to do regular recharge every 28 days to keep their service active. As like Airtel, the company introduced the least minimum recharge pack of Rs. 23 which is much affordable when compared to others.
Even if your Tata Docomo prepaid sim have lifetime validity, it will not work as like before now. From now onwards, each user must recharge their SIM card for Rs. 23 or above.
What happen if no recharge is made ?
Now, while checking the balance, you will get a message saying that, your Outgoing validity will end on a particular date. You have to do recharge before that date. If no recharge was done before that date, then the outgoing call service will be stopped. Since the company already implemented the rule, some users outgoing has been already stopped as like Idea, Vodafone and Airtel.
Then for the next 15 day, subscribers will get incoming calls, where the outgoing will not work. If no recharge was made on those 15 days, incoming call service also will be blocked. All the services will be restored as soon as the user makes the recharge.
