After issue of this amendment, the processing fee applicable for top-up vouchers with denominations having maximum retail price below Rs.20 would remain the same.


Denominations having maximum retail price of Rs.20 or more, Rs.3 will be ceiling.


The authority has also mandated that all the service providers would ensure availability of Rs.10 denomination as top-up voucher.
