Did Google Change Its Geocoding Quotas?

Google MapsBatchGeo, which provides Geocoding applications has reported that Google Geocoding API may have changed its quotas. Earlier the Geocoding API allowed up to 2500 geocodes from a single user in a day. As per BatchGeo, there is a severe delay in geocodes once you get through 200 geocodes in a row. They go on to state that it was  just seen in beta version of the API, but starting 3/19/13 this change is being forced in production. A bug for the same has been filed in the official Google Maps API group.
