Telecom regulator TRAI Friday said inactive mobile connections of pre-paid customers cannot be deactivated if they have a minimum balance of Rs. 20 in their account and the time period for considering 'inactive' has been set at 90 days.

Announcing an amendment to a regulation for protecting consumers, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said "There shall be no deactivation if the balance in pre-paid consumer account is Rs. 20 or more."

"The mobile connections of prepaid consumers shall not be deactivated for any period of non-usage less than 90 days," TRAI said.
