As you may already be aware, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and the Department of Telecommunications(DOT) have released a new regulation which states that all promotional messages submitted will be charged an extra termination charge @ 5ps + taxes effective 1800 hrs IST 25th October 2011.
To comply with the new regulation, we are left with not many options but to pass on the same to our valuable customers. Therefore we are introducing a new CREDIT SYSTEM in our panel named Termination Credits, the cost of which would be 5 ps+ taxes per credit. The existing credits can be used only if you have adequate Termination credits in your account. You will also have the privilege to transfer the existing credits to Termination credits by matching the applicable rates by deducting credits equivalent to 5 ps + tax from your existing credit.If this sounds a bit confusing for you, please get in touch with your account managers who will be more than happy to guide you through the entire process.
As you might be aware by now, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has issued a new regulation which after multiple delays and updates, is due to go into effect on September 27, 2011. These regulations are designed to put an end to unsolicited commercial communications (UCC) to subscribers of National Do Not Call (NDNC) register, now enhanced and renamed as National Customer Preference Register (NCPR). Although the regulation is aimed to significantly curb UCC, it brings a positive change to the industry by allowing full access to the NCPR/DND database to registered telemarketers and easy registration/deregistration process etc. Having said that, I would like to bring your attention to a few things which will change the way we have been doing business until now.
