TELECOM REGULATORY AUTHORITY OF INDIA
Mahanagar Doorsanchar Bhawan, Jawaharlal Nehru Marg,
(Old Minto Road), Delhi 110 002.
New Delhi, the 26th March, 2012
DIRECTION
Subject: Direction under section 13, read with sub-clauses (i) and (v) of
clause (b) of sub-section (1) of section 11 of the Telecom Regulatory
Authority of India Act, 1997, on tariff advertisements.

"Illustrations of misleading advertisements

.......
............
(vi) Advertising the titles of the tariff plans or other packages/schemes,
which suggest unlimited usage, will be treated as misleading in
situations where the features of such plan/scheme/package put
restrictions on the quantum of usage in any manner including by way
of Fair Usage Policy etc. on the usage. Thus, a plan advertised, as
‘unlimited free calls’ would mislead if there is daily limit or ceiling on
the total minute of usage either by way of fair usage policy or otherwise.
For a common man the term 'unlimited' would only mean without any
limit whatsoever.
