Recent growth of Free messaging and free calling applications like Whatsapp, Hike, Skype, Viber etc badly affecting to the telecom service providers like Bharati Airtel, Idea, Vodafone, Tata Docomo, Reliance, Aircel, MTS etc., they reported this to the Indian Telecom Authority named TRAI to do the right decision around these free messaging and calling applications in India.
WhatsApp, Viber etc will be paid applications in near by future. There is a chance to implement usage fees for Whatsapp, Viber etc because the telecom companies are paying big amount as tax and other license fees to Indian Government and the earnings from investment is low comparing with the past. This earnings drop is manly due to the raising of free messaging and calling applications.
For overcoming this, TRAI may introduce the usage fee for Whatsapp, Viber, Hike, Skype etc.,
