The telecom ministry unveiled the new draft telecom policy during the week. One of the major highlights of the new telecom policy is the abolition of roaming charges. This could be bad news for telecom companies like Bharti Airtel and Idea as their margins could be hit severely. Currently GSM operators like Airtel get around 8% of their revenue from roaming charges. According to Ernst and Young (E&Y) a global consultancy firm, the net revenue loss from scrapping of roaming charges on telecom operators could be around USD $400 m.

They are going to abolish all roaming charges. It means you can talk to any place all over India at the same cost you are talking a local call. No call received anywhere in India will be charged. All roaming will be free. This is a land mark telecom policy that has been taken. But I expect that there may be a slight increase in call charges. Again due to stiff competition among the telecom companies, increase may not be very great.
