The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has agreed to review its earlier decision to ban operators from giving any monetary value with special tariff vouchers. This comes as a relief to mobile operators that had sent several representations to the regulator demanding that the ban be revoked.

Under the regulation, special sachet plans, which enabled pre-paid mobile users get talk time vouchers for as low as Rs 10, were banned. Until now, mobile companies were selling promotional vouchers that allowed subscribers to get special rates, free talk-time and extra SMSes, over and above their ongoing tariff plans, for a specific period.
