At present, the operators offer information on various tariffs on their own websites.
TRAI noted that the new platform would not only benefit the consumers but also help other stakeholders do a comparative analysis.
As a first step, Trai has made tariff data available for the Delhi circle, and sought user feedback about the new site.
“To get initial feedback on the look and feel of this portal from consumers, beta version of tariff data for Delhi LSA is also made available on Trai website www.trai.gov.in. The details on the website are as reported by the TSPs of Delhi LSA,” it added.
