The rental rebate is applied for subscribers of broadband services when the services are interrupted for a long period of time due to departmental issues. So a rental rebate would be applied to the broadband services that is proportionate to the duration when there is service interruption of 7-14 days. In case the service interruption is for 15-30 days, then the rental rebate would be given for 30 days. A pro-rata rental rebate would be given if the service gets interrupted for more than a month.
