Vodafone Idea (Vi) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ravinder Takkar on Monday said the telecom company could raise tariffs this year.

All the three private telcos — Reliance Jio, Airtel and Vi — hiked their prepaid tariff plans by around 20 per cent in November last year. While this has led to an increase in the average revenue per user (ARPU) for the companies, it has impacted recharges and resulted in consolidation of SIM cards, especially for Vi.

Takkar said another tariff hike is possible in 2022 but would depend on how well the market absorbs the recent increase.
