Airtel on call drops

Bharti Airtel – in May 2016 — announced a 25 percent more stringent voluntary benchmark of 1.5 percent for mobile call drops versus the current TRAI prescribed norm of 2 percent under the Quality of Service regulations.

Based on the calculation of the call drop rate during network busy hour on a monthly average, any amount calculated for exceeding the 1.5 percent voluntary benchmark, subject to a maximum of INR 100 crore per annum, will be contributed by Bharti Airtel towards the education of underprivileged children in rural areas.
