JIO IUC charges detail explained - plans , benefits , validity , packs


This news belongs to all the current Jio customers. All Jio users from 10th Oct 2019 will be charged an amount of 6 paise per minute upon calling to a non-jio user as IUC charge.

What are IUC charges ??

This is also known as interconnect usage charge. It is the additional price or tax that a telecom operator has to pay upon calling to an other telecom operator ( different network ). This charge is fixed by TRAI ( telecom regulatory authority of India ) as 6 paise per minute.

How does IUC charge is deducted ??

Whenever  a Jio user call to a non-jio user then JIO TELECOM had to pay 6 paise / minute as IUC charge to other operator, Suppose a person is calling from Jio to Airtel and talked for 1 hour then Jio telecom have to pay 360 paise / RS 3.6 ( 6paise × 60 minutes ) to Airtel telecom as IUC charge, on the other hand there is no IUC charge implement on calling from Jio to jio ( same network ).

Why Jio didn't charge IUC from last two years ??

From the last 2 years, Jio telecom services are paying this charges to other telecom operators by themselves. It means that Jio itself had already paid more than 12000 crores of rupees to other telecom network as IUC charge from their own pocket in order to make free call services.

When Jio will stop taking IUC charge?

On January 2019, Jio telecom operators claimed to make IUC charges totally free for all network operators to the supreme court. But till now no action has been taken by the indian supreme court against making ICU charges free of cost.

Jio promised to take back this IUC charges and make everything normal only after the supreme court passed the bill for making IUC charges free.

As the bill passed for making IUC charges free will be implemented till January 2020. Therefore , till January 2020 all the customers of Jio will be charged as 6 paise / minute for calling to all non-jio users.

How to recharge IUC packs in your jio number and what are the plans ?

IUC packs can't be activated from jio main balance. But Jio users need to recharge this IUC packs online or in the form of mobile topups from Jio retailer for availing IUC benefits.
