If a child makes a mistake, it’s the duty of his mother to discipline the child. It is the same case with TRAI and Airtel where Airtel is the spoilt child. TRAI has asked Airtel to remove its short code numbers which Airtel uses to promote for its Value Added Services (VAS). According to TRAI, Airtel has violated TRAI regulations of national numbering plan which is given to every service provider.
Within a week, Airtel has to comply with the plan and discontinue services like Marathi Mobile Radio?, Ringtone Genie etc. in Maharashtra and Goa circle. That’s not enough. Other services like Voice Chat in Bihar, Airtel FM in UP and other services in different parts of the country will also have to be discontinued.
