Trai un­veils beta site for com­par­ing tele­com tar­iffs


The Tele­com Reg­u­la­tory Au­thor­ity of In­dia (Trai) on Mon­day un­veiled beta ver­sion of a por­tal that aims to bring on one plat­form the tele­com tar­iffs of­fered by dif­fer­ent op­er­a­tors and in dif­fer­ent ser­vice ar­eas.

The move is ex­pected to pro­vide more trans­parency and in­for­ma­tion on mul­ti­ple tar­iff of­fer­ings by tel­cos, help­ing con­sumers at large. “To en­able con­sumers see tar­iffs of dif­fer­ent TSPs (tele­com ser­vice providers) and dif­fer­ent Li­censed Ser­vice Ar­eas (LSAs) at a sin­gle place, a beta ver­sion of por­tal namely www.tar­ has been re­leased by Trai to­day,” it said. Trai said var­i­ous tar­iff plans are be­ing pro­vided at its web­site in a down­load­able for­mat, for easy ac­cess. At present, the op­er­a­tors of­fer in­for­ma­tion on var­i­ous tar­iffs on their own web­sites.

It noted that the new plat­form would not only ben­e­fit the con­sumers but also help other stake­hold­ers do a com­par­a­tive anal­y­sis.

As a first step, Trai has made tar­iff data avail­able for the Delhi cir­cle, and sought user feed­back about the new site. “To get ini­tial feed­back on the look and feel of this por­tal from con­sumers, beta ver­sion of tar­iff data for Delhi LSA is also made avail­able on Trai web­site The de­tails on the web­site are as re­ported by the TSPs of Delhi LSA," it added.
