Reliance Jio To Offer Free Calls On Other Networks From January 1, 2021


As expected, Reliance Jio has announced that calls on the other networks will be free from tomorrow (January 1, 2021). This development comes after interconnect usage charges will become zero from Friday as per TRAI last year's order, which means that outgoing calls on other networks will be free.

Reliance Jio To Offer Free Calls On Other Networks From January

"Honouring its commitment to revert off-net domestic voice-call charges to zero, as soon as IUC charges are abolished, Jio will once again make all off-net domestic voice calls free, starting 1st January 2021. On-net domestic voice calls have always been free on the Jio network," Reliance Jio said.

Reliance Jio also pointed out that they have made the promise and making the calls free on the other network. "Jio stands firm on its commitment to make the common Indian the beneficiary of advanced technologies like VoLTE. Jio is a customer-obsessed organisation and cares for every single user. All our users enjoy free voice calls with Jio," it said.

Notably, last year, in September 2019, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India extended the IUC regime until January 1, 2021. After that, Reliance Jio started charging 6 paise per minute for off-net calls. However, other private operators like Airtel and Vi (Vodafone-Idea) continue to provide free calls on the other networks.
