Why Reliance Jio Calls On Other Networks Will Be Free From January 2021


Last year, TRAI decided to discontinue the interconnect usage charges (IUC) until January 2021; however, that deadline is going to end soon. This means that Reliance Jio calls on the other networks will be free from next month. Currently, the company is charging 6 paise per minute to non-Jio users.

Why Reliance Jio Calls On Other Networks Will Be Free From January

"On the basis of comments received from stakeholders in writing and during the open house discussion, and its own analysis, the Authority has prescribed the revised date of applicability of Bill and Keep (BAK) regime, i.e. zero termination charges in respect of wireless to wireless domestic calls, with effect from January 1, 2021," the telecom regulator said earlier.

Interconnection Usage Charges Will Be Zero From January

As per the TRAI order, there will be no IUC charges from January 2021, which means that the telecom operators cannot charge a single penny to their customers for making calls on other networks. In case the telecom regulator comes up with a new consultation paper that postpones this IUC rule, then Reliance Jio users have to pay for calls. However, this is the last week of the month and TRAI has not announced any new rule, which means the calls will be free from next month and all Reliance Jio users can call on another network without any FUP minutes.
