The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has released the list of Black Out days for the year 2012. The TRAI list features various details including circle names and service providers. The list also includes the services such as SMS, Voice, GSM services that will be affected by the new norms.
The TRAI, which imposed a cap of 200 SMS per day per SIM last year, had excluded certain Black Out days, wherein users can send unlimited number of text messages. Users, however, gave a cold shoulder to the move, as telecom operators charge users at original base tariffs on Black Out days.
As per the TRAI list, Idea Cellular users in Mumbai circles will have following Black Out days - New Year (1st January), New Year Eve (31st December), Holi (8th March), Valentine's Day (14th February), Diwali (13th November).
