in a boost to Reliance Jio which is offering life-time free voice calling service, telecom regulator Trai has held that tariff plans of the new player are compliant to existing rules and not discriminatory. “…it is found that the tariff plans filed with TRAI cannot be considered as IUC non-complaint, predatory and discriminatory, at present,” the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India said in a letter to telecom operators.
Incumbent operators Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and others approached Trai against free call service being offered by
Reliance Jio, calling the tariff plan predatory, discriminatory and non-compliant to present rules. Telecom operators are required to pay 14 paise per minute for each outgoing call from their network to the operator on whose network the call finally lands.
Mukesh Ambani, India’s richest man, stormed his way into the telecom sector last month announcing a Jio Welcome Offer giving unlimited free calls to subscribers for lifetime. Reacting to the Trai letter, RJio in a statement said, “This (Trai’s letter) clearly establishes the fact that all the tariffs offered by RJIL are in compliance with the prevailing regulations. A key feature of RJIL’s tariff packs is free voice calling for Local, STD and National roaming for all times.”
Besides this, it is offering unlimited free 4G mobile broadband till December 31. Rival telecom operators had also contested free data service offered by Jio beyond 90 days but same have been set aside by the regulator. “The revised offer of free services by Reliance Jio has been limited to 90 days i.e. December 3, 2016 and therefore is consistent with the guidelines on promotional offers,” TRAI said in an order.
