The news was made official by Jio through its social media handles. As per the telecom operator, it is doing so in compliance with TRAI’s (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) guidelines for IUC charge.
Jio’s announcement left the users by a shock as the telecom operator promised “free calls” and set the trend in the telecom industry. Now, charging 6 paise a minute is nothing but a complete turn from its commitment by the firm.
Though the company offered Free 1 GB additional data once a user spends INR 10 on his call charges, the users were not satisfied with the move. The charges would be applicable on all recharges post-October 10th.
IUC plans have been introduced by Jio starting from INR 10. Jio to Jio Calls would remain free for all the users.
