These guidelines are issued for bringing better tanspirancy in India telecom sector. According to TRAI, all telecom companies should follow these guidlines and should not charge standard rates on all blackout days. TRAI had already limited number of blackout days, that they should not be more than 5 in a year.
Now TRAI has issued new guidlines for telecom companies about Blackout Days. These guidlines includes:
1. Telecompanies should not charge extra for SMS or calls on blackout/festival days.
2. All telecom companies must send prior notification to customers about blackout day.
3. All telecom companies must mention all blackout/festive days in their calenders and should also publish these blackout days on their websites.
So, if all these guidelines will be followed by telecom compaines, will give a relief to all mobile phone users. Young generation will love this much more than others, because they will get freedom for sending free wish messages to their friends which would be charged otherwise.
