The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has issued a notice to Anil Ambani‘s Reliance Communications and Reliance Telecom to refund the unused balance of RCom’s prepaid customers and security deposit of the post paid subscribers by January 31.

TRAI had also asked RCom to submit a compliance report every Monday, starting January 1, 2018, till the month end.
Trai had earlier asked RCom to smoothen the process of customers wanting to exit the carrier’s network in circles where it switched off services from December 1 and to keep the unique porting codes (UPCs) active till end-January, following complaints about the company’s customers facing problems in porting out.
