Intensifying the tariff war among telecom companies, the new telecom player, Aircel, on Thursday launched a pay-per second scheme for its subscribers in Delhi.
Aircel, which has a presence in 18 mobile circles in the country said in a statement that it has launched a product in Delhi, which will allow subscribers on Aircel network to make local and STD calls for 1 paise per second.
International calls will also be charged at per second pulse.
“With per second pulse a subscriber will only pay for what he uses. It’s a complete value-for-money offer wherein a subscriber making a call for 12 seconds will pay only 12 paise and not Re. 1,” the company said.
The new Aircel lifetime connection will have a pulse for per second. Even existing subscribers can opt for this.
Aircel, which has 25 million GSM subscribers, is one of the operators to introduce per-second billing after the telecom regulator TRAI suggested earlier this month that operators should offer per second pulse as an option along with other tariff plans.
Cellular operators such as Tata DoCoMo, Idea and others already have a per-second billing scheme available.
