ANSWER: Free Basics
Facebook’s Free Basics platform will not remain free any more. Reliance Communications, Facebook India’s partner for the interface has taken the decision to make it into a paid platform. Decision goes against FB’s objective of providing free of cost platform for connecting persons online. To be completely compliant with the new regulations made by TRAI, RCom has begun reconfiguration of Free Basics from a free regime to a chargeable one.
