Telecom regulator Trai today said processing fee levied on top-up vouchers should not exceed 10 per cent of maximum retail price of coupon or Rs 3, whichever is less, a move which would provide relief to prepaid users recharging with lower denomination top-up vouchers.
"A nominal fee, not exceeding 10 per cent of maximum retail price of top-up voucher or Rs 3, whichever is less, shall be levied towards administrative cost or expenses for each top-up voucher," Trai said in its Telecommunication Tariff (Fifty Third Amendment) Order, 2012.

Trai limits processing fee on top-ups to 10 per cent of MRP or Rs 3, whichever is less
