Vodafone India, on Tuesday, raised its call rates by a steep 20 per cent in Mumbai circle, a possible indication that cheap tariff would end sooner than later.
Vodafone has been offering a call rate of one paisa per second for local as well as national calls.
In an SMS alert to its post-paid subscribers, Vodafone said local and STD rates would now be Rs.1.20 per second. The new rates are effective from May bill cycle.
