  • Higher packs should always come earlier in the hierarchy & discount is applicable for second pack and onwards, For instance, if a subscriber has 3 connections: 2 Lite & 1 Standard, then the hierarchy should be like: AKASH STANDARD+ AKASH LITE + AKASH LITE. As there’s no discount on the first connection, therefore, discount will be applicable only on the lower 2 packs. So here, from the table, the discounted subscription fee for the 3 connection in total will be: 399+200+200
  • If a customer converts any of his Lite packs into standard pack, then the hierarchy of the packs will be changed accordingly.
