Jio IUC Voice Call Charges: Telco Says Subscribers on Existing Plans Can Continue Making Free Outgoing Calls


Earlier this week, Reliance Jio faced public objection as it stated that it is going to charge six paise per minute on outgoing calls made to other networks from Thursday. But the brand is still not in favour of accepting the public objection and has decided that it will continue to offer free outgoing call benefits to none-Jio numbers for all customers who have recharged on or before October 9, as announced by Mumbai-headquartered telco.

The company has claimed that the new voice charge would be at the prevailing Interconnect Usage Charge (IUC) rate that has been fixed by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) for mobile operators enabling inter-networking outgoing calls and to compensate for the additional charge that is charged for Jio voice call, the Jio operator has decided to give an additional 1GB data on every Rs.10 spent.

As per the tweet posted by the official account of reliance Jio, “for all the customers who have recharged on or before October 9, the operator will continue to offer free call benefits on outgoing calls.” The benefits will only be given until the expiry date of the existing plan.

The benefits simply mean that:

  1. Users can make free outgoing calls from your Jio number to other mobile networks until your existing plan expires.
  2. After the existing plan is expired, the users will be required to recharge with one of the new IUC top-up vouchers to make off-net outgoing calls post the expiry of your plan.

Earlier this week, Reliance Jio announced four IUC top-up vouchers. The vouchers range from Rs. 10 to Rs. 100, and these vouchers offer up to 1,362 minutes along with as much as 20GB data. The announcement also stated that the new top-up vouchers are required irrespective of which Jio plan you have to avail outgoing calls to non-Jio numbers.

Although the brand faced criticism from the public for its new decision that is opposite to the original promise of offering free voice calls, the operator isn’t likely to take a step back. Reliance Jio mentioned that the charge on off-net outgoing calls would remain until the time TRAI moves to a zero termination charge regime that is expected to take place starting January 1, 2020.
