The company has declared that it will not levy any renewal charges on its Indian subscribers.

Neeraj Arora, the Vice President of WhatsApp said that the company understands the low usage of credit cards here and that paying a renewal fee might not be an option.

Usually, the charge that is levied on WhatsApp users is $1 after the first year. It is to be noted that the company was recently acquired by Facebook at a whopping price of $19 billion.

However, even after the acquisition, WhatsApp vowed to remain the same. He also said that the company will not allow ads in pop ups as that is very disturbing.
