New Delhi: Country’s largest telecom operator Reliance Jio today announced that its customers will now have to pay 6 paise per minute for voice calls made to Airtel and Vodafone users.
The company said for all the outgoing calls to other mobile operators, Jio users will have to buy an additional IUC top up voucher from tomorrow. Post-paid customers will also be billed at 6 paise per minute for outgoing calls with increase in free data entitlement. This will be the first time that Jio users will pay for voice calls.
Jio will provide additional data entitlement of equivalent value based on IUC top-up voucher consumption. This will ensure no increase in tariff for customers.
Currently, Jio charges only for data, and voice calls to anywhere in the country and to any network are free.
