Reliance Jio, in its recommendations to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) regarding setting of floor price for data rates, has proposed that wireless data prices should be gradually increased from the current Rs 15 per GB to Rs 20 per GB after six to nine months.

Reliance Jio has supported TRAI’s intervention to prescribe floor price for wireless data service and is of the view that voice tariff should continue under forbearance as before as the same will affect the masses and will be difficult to implement.

Further, the telco has recommended that target floor price should be implemented in 2-3 tranches so as to minimise the impact of increase in tariff.

Moreover, the operator has suggested that data floor price should be uniformly implemented across all tariffs and applicable to all segments.
