Jio to charge users 6 paisa per minute for voice calls made to rival phone networks

Forced by regulatory uncertainty over the review of sunset clause for call termination charges, billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio on Wednesday announced it will charge customers 6 paise per minute for voice calls made to rival phone networks but will compensate them by giving free data of equal value.

In a statement, Jio said the 6 paisa charge will remain in place till the time telecom operators are required to pay rivals for mobile phone calls made by their users to other operators’ networks.

These charges are not applicable on calls made by Jio users to other Jio phones and to landline phones and calls made using WhatsApp, FaceTime and other such platforms.
