Reliance customers would now be able to call any country in the Gulf region at Rs6.99 per minute and this offer would be available with its calling card worth Rs1,900. This announcement by Reliance Communications comes at a time when its rival Bharti Airtel announced slashing of its call charges to the US and Canada by 39 per cent. Earlier, the Anil Ambani group company had announced reduction in roaming tariff by as much as 70 per cent, the lowest in the industry so far. “The series of initiatives undertaken recently would further enhance RCOM's (Reliance Communications) leadership position and value for our many million stakeholders," S.P.
