Hello friends, My name is Subhash Chandra from technicalbose.in . Today we will talk about the jio telecom network that, jio will not be free to make outgoing calls since 10th oct 2019.
The Jio has been Announced ,Due to the undergoing regulatory policy changes for mobile-call-related charges, Jio is compelled to recover IUC charge for NON-JIO mobile voice calls.
Your next recharge, post 10th October, all calls to NON-JIO mobile numbers will be charged at 6 paise/minute. You will have the option to select a suitable IUC TOP-UP voucher starting at Rs 10, that can be used to make such non-Jio calls. This recovery of IUC will continue only until the IUC charge is made zero by TRAI.
What is IUC?
Interconnect Usage Charge or IUC is a cost paid by one mobile telecom operator to another, when its customers make outgoing mobile calls to the other operator’s customers. These calls between two different networks are known as mobile off-net calls. IUC charges are fixed by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and are currently at 6 paise / minute.
Jio says, to compensate our customers for the cost of these additional IUC top-ups, we will offer additional 1 GB of data for every 10-rupee spent, ABSOLUTELY FREE.
Why jio charge IUC to its customer?
TRAI had said that it should completely free the IUC charges by the year 2020, but TRAI is still discussing its decision. Jio continued to pay IUC to Airtel, Vodafone and Idea etc. from its own resources while providing free services to its customers. So far, Jio has paid about Rs 13,500 crore as NET IUC fee to other operators in the last three years.
So now jio has decided to charge its customer IUC for making outgoing calls. Unless IUC charges are fully zeroed out by TRAI.
I hope you like this important news about jio telecom. Please do share this post with family,friends .
