The report has also revealed that the charges for additional usage beyond free data usage for both 2G and 3G postpaid data plans has also been revised. Now, users have to pay 1paisa/ 10 KB, instead of the previous 4 paisa/10 KB.
Elaborating further on the latest development, the report added, the revised rates will pertain to roaming as well as home networks.
