Reliance Jio Presents free talktime to compensate Customers for interconnect usage Fees

Jio declared it will begin charging users paise per minute for incoming calls to other telecom operators.

Jio’s new limited-time offer includes 30 minutes of free talktime to customers in their very first recharge, according to a report by ET. The report also claims that consumers are being advised of the deal through SMSs. The 30-second free Talktime is going to be legal for users to receive the initial seven days because of the recharge. This is along with the recently introduced top-up vouchers with free moments and information.

On the afternoon Jio declared it would begin IUC charges, also, it rolled out three new top-up vouchers. Beginning at Rs 10, this IUC top-up voucher provides 124 minutes of calls for non-Jio amounts and 1GB of information.

Last, the Rs 100 top-up includes 1,362 minutes and 10GB of information. Jio postpaid users are also paid with free information contrary to the moments used to create incoming calls to equal telcos. Jio’s choice to begin imposing IUC charges comes soon after TRAI spanned a fresh consultation paper to assess its own 2017 decision.

TRAI had decided to bring down IUC prices from 6 paise to 0 on January 1, 2020. The telecom jurisdiction will review to extend the deadline further. Jio says it’s up to now paid Rs 13,500 crore for IUC prices to equal telcos.
