At this instant, Jio has also come up with custom IUC packs for users to recharge and enjoy free minutes.
Jio's scathing attack comes at a time when the industry has, once again, turned into a virtual battleground with incumbent operators and the latest entrant clashing over call connect charges. Vodafone Idea did not immediately respond to latest allegations.
Commenting on a media query on Reliance Jio's move he said, "IUC has nothing to do with tariff". Jio has alleged that by showing a wireline number as mobile connection, the incumbent operators are taking a higher termination charge. However, the telecom network had to face a lot of criticism over it and now to cool the heat off, Jio mentioned that it would offer 30 minutes of free talk time to customers.
At the time, Jio said it had 331 million subscribers at the end of June, however Samsung said on Tuesday that number had risen to over 340 million by the end of August. In all these cases, the mobile number is used just as a virtual number for routing all such calls to respective call centre set-ups of these organisations operating on wire-line PRIs with hunting facilities."Jio said in a letter to the TRAI". Jio alleged that the practice has resulted in huge losses to its network - running into hundreds of crores of rupees - but also caused losses to the exchequer.
Jio has also urged the regulator to recommend licensor (Department of Telecom) to levy the highest penalty for violation of the licence conditions, besides directing the telcos to refund the applicable mobile termination charge amount to Jio with interest.
