Jio’s 2019 All In One Plans: Explained

If you are having a hard time understanding Jio’s charges for voice calls in case of IUC (Interconnection Usage Charge), here is a detailed blog to explain the change in Jio’s recharge plans.


Reliance Jio has recently added a charge of 6 paise/minute from its customers for all outgoing calls to other network operators. Which means if you are calling from your Jio connection to other mobile connections, you will have to pay 6 paise/ minute for your calls.

But then, there are many other offers that Jio has added to the list for its users.


To explain IUC: Interconnection usage charges is the amount paid by one telecom operator to other in lieu of the outgoing calls made from the first telecom operator to the second operator.


Reliance Jio claims to have paid about  Rs.13,500 crore as NET IUC charge. As per Jio, it has paid the required IUC to Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and other operators but did not charge it from their customers. The voice calls for customers have been free until the change in recharge plans occurred. ‘Due to the undergoing regulatory policy changes for mobile-call-related charges, Jio is compelled to recover IUC charges for non-Jio mobile voice calls.’


Jio also specifies that the “recovery of IUC will continue ONLY UNTIL the IUC charge is made zero by TRAI.


Although Jio has added an IUC of 6 paise/ minute for voice calls but there are many more plans that it has launched for its customers.
