With reference to the below email, we have received a new directive from TRCSL dated 30th June 2010. As per the new directive the new floor rates will come into effect from 15th July 2010 (extension of the previous effective date of 30th June 2010).
Therefore we can continue to offer Upahara and all other packages until 15th July 2010.
From 16th July 2010 onwards Upahara will not be available for new connections.
DISCONTINUATION OF UPAHARA PACKAGE
In accordance with the Directive of Telecommunication Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka, which we received today (28.06.2010), TRCSL has setup a floor price for the per minute basis (off net Rs. 2/= on net 1/= per minute) and for per second basis (Off net Rs 2.50 and on net 1.25 per minute).
In view of the above Directive, we are in the process of examining our current tariff plans and as per our understanding, Upahara package can be offered only up to 30th June 2010.
With effect from 1st of July 2010, reactivation of deactivated Upahara customers will be allowed until TRCSL decides on the same.
