Indian telecom service provider Reliance Communications announced a new plan to offer loan of Rs 5 or Rs 10, which can be used when the balance dips below Rs 10, to pre-paid GSM customers.
Reliance Communications in a statement on Monday said that its mobile subscribers need to dial *141# (toll-free) to get the instant TalkLoan recharge, which can be used for both voice and data services.
Once thecustomer dials *141#, he/she can select the denomination of the instant recharge and startusing the phone for voice and data services immediately.
The talk-time given through the TalkLoan loan facility does not have any validity, and users can use it anytime they want. The loan amount will be recovered by the company over subsequent recharges, with a nominal transaction fee.
Gurdeep Singh, chief executive officer, ConsumerBusiness, Reliance Communications Limited, said: “TalkLoan will provide convenience to our customers, assuring them of uninterrupted voice and data usage. With this service, RCOM’scustomers can virtually not run out of balance at any time.”
