RJio To Charge 6p/min For Calls To Rival Networks
Blames the move on regulatory uncertainty over continuation of interconnect charges

Reliance Jio has decided to withdraw its free voice call offer. It will now charge its customers 6 paise a minute to make calls to subscribers of other mobile operators.

The operator was offering all voice calls for free until now.

While calls within the RJio network and outgoing calls to landline phones will continue to be free, those made to users of other mobile operators, including Airtel and Vodafone Idea, will now be charged.

To soften the impact on its users, RJio is offering free data of 1GB to 10 GB bundled with new top-up vouchers for making voice calls to other mobile networks, valued between ₹10 and ₹100.
