The cell phone has changed with the recent reform of telecommunications in India. Prepaid service has evolved to leave postpaid relegated to the background (although in other countries it has been different due to various reasons).
n India there are about 302.2 million telephone lines, of which 57% still has prepaid service. The average spending on prepaid is 1000 rupees a month and eight out of ten users recharge 1000 rupees or less. Indians prefer this service against monthly income plans basically because they want the easiest way to keep expenses controlled and a prepaid plan helps in that regard. The trend indicates that with increasing age of the population is more likely to purchase a postpaid plan.
Moreover, after the Telecommunications Reform, the market has strengthened Prepayment: It has eliminated long distance charges, preferential charges of either kind and the arrival of virtual operators.
Additional advantages are that the prepayment for a minimum recharge minutes of telephone services, text messaging, data services and a variety of services are awarded to stay connected without the need of balance. In addition the price of Mobile handsets are similar with or without a plan, the advantage with the prepaid being that the user is not under a contract and could switch to any company for better service..
A disadvantage could be that prepayment can be dangerous in case of an emergency where you need to call more but unable to complete the call as you are not able to recharge your phone. You could use Paytm promo Code to get discounts on your recharge.
In short, the mobile pay as you use has evolved in to something very interesting in India is a very viable option if you plan to keep a monthly cost control, since most of the companies in the country offer a refill of 150 or 200 rupees for you which could be used for whole month social networks, whatsapp, Internet browsing, minutes of calling throughout the country (some even international) and text messages. And with an average cost of 1 rupee per MB, SMS or minute subscribers actually end up getting a wider benefit by paying lesser amount.
