The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) on Friday determined to deal with the difficulty of interconnection utilization fees (IUC) and mentioned it could review the matter via discussions.
Trai, in its session paper, mentioned it could review the regulatory regime for worldwide call termination fees that have been lowered to 30 paise per minute final yr. It implies that operator A pays operator B worldwide call termination cost of 30 paise per minute if a call from the previous’s community lands on the latter’s community. In an earlier review, Trai had introduced down the termination cost for worldwide incoming call to wire line and wi-fi networks to 30 paise per minute with impact from February 1, 2018.
This had marked a 43 per cent discount in worldwide termination cost (paid by worldwide operators to native networks that obtain calls) which had beforehand been pegged at 53 paise a minute.
