The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) said, "Mobile call connection charge cut to 6 paise per minute from 14 paise now, effective October 1".

Trai added that there would be no call termination charges applicable from 1 January 2020.

The IUC is fixed by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India.

Telecom operators levy IUC on incoming calls from other networks and the charges are passed on to subscribers.

GSTN reopens window for composition scheme for small traders
As of now, the threshold limit for traders to compulsorily register under GST is an annual turnover of Rs 20 lakh. Those getting left out are increasing the pressure on the large companies.


The cut in the charge goes against the demands made by established operators, including Bharti Airtel, which wanted the termination rate to be raised and benchmarked against the actual cost. The changes in domestic termination charges will be put into effect from October 1, 2017, as stated by a press statement by the TRAI.

Notably, the telecom disruptor Reliance Jio has been advocating lowering termination charges on grounds that it will benefit the customers.

Meanwhile, any other type of call - between landline to landline, or landline to mobile phones - will continue to be exempted from all termination charges. Reliance Jio said in July that India's top three telecom firms earned Rs1.04 trillion in the past five years by not implementing a 2011 regulatory road map to cut IUC to zero.
