Mobile phone users may not have to pay for any charges while on roaming all around the country from 2013. Kapil Sibal indicated that from next year Indian mobile phone users will not have to pay for any roaming charges. Actually no roaming across the country was one of the plans mentioned in the National Telecom policy of 2012. According to reports India will be free from roaming charges once that policy becomes effective.
So there will be no roaming charges in India from next year but its a slight possibility that this policy will increase calling charges. GSM body director Rajan S Mathews said, it will be a nice addition to mobile services in India. He also added that they will have to talk to TRAI about the calling rates at the time of free roaming in India from 2013.
