Microsoft is announcing Indian rupee price changes for enterprise software and cloud services in India. Microsoft periodically assesses the impact of its local pricing of products and services to ensure there is reasonable alignment across markets and this change is an outcome of this assessment. Starting January 1, 2017 Indian rupee prices for enterprise cloud services will increase by 10 percent to realign close to global levels. On-premises enterprise software prices will increase by 15 percent to adjust for inflation since the previous adjustment in January 2014 and realign close to global levels. For business customers, these changes will not affect existing partner orders under annuity volume licensing agreements for products that are subject to price protection. Prices for new product additions under such volume licensing agreements and purchases under new contracts will be as defined by the channel price list at the time of order. Changes apply to customers based in India only.
Microsoft has undertaken a balanced approach to adjust prices in India. It was three years ago in January 2014 that Microsoft last adjusted prices in India. Cloud customers across India will still find Microsoft cloud offerings very competitive. Customers in India can continue to take advantage of low prices to purchase products and cloud services, and lock new contracts at the existing price level until December 31, 2016.
Microsoft is offering old prices with additional discounts for 2 days and request you to forward your enquiry for Microsoft products. Special prices only for SMB customers applicable till orders received on/before 28.12.2016 2.30PM. Normal orders will be accepted till 30.12.2016 6.00 PM .
