New Delhi: Over nine million subscribers of Tata Teleservices' (TTSL) prepaid mobile phone service will be able to enjoy unlimited calls to any local TTSL user for free with its new calling card.

The offer would be available only to its prepaid customers who can also call any other mobile for 0.49 per minute and fixed line for 0.99, while STD charges will be 2.49.

TTSL, which employs CDMA technology, has a customer base of about 11.9 million mobile customers, 80 percent of which are prepaid.

"This is the most aggressive plan, more aggressive than any launched by our competitors," Naresh Malhan, president (consumer business), TTSL, told reporters here Thursday referring to some of the recent tariff plans launched by rival Reliance Communications.

TTSL, part of the $22 billion Tata Group, also launched a range of low-cost handsets by Huawei, Haier and Kyocera Topaz, with its regular tariff package, at 1,499, 1,799 and 1,999 respectively.

"With the launch of this calling card, priced at 325, we are actually filling a void in the market," Malhan said indicating that the leading GSM players would also now be launching similar schemes.
