Telcos citing TRAI affidavit on network charge are twisting facts: COAI

Cell industry body COAI has affirmed that administrators refering to TRAI's 2011 testimony in the Supreme Court to push for rejecting call end charge are endeavoring to "twist realities", making false impression among people in general. The claim comes in the midst of continuous audit by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) of the call associate charges, a disagreeable issue between occupant administrators like Airtel, Vodafone and Idea and newcomer Reliance Jio. 

Telecom firms require interconnection utilization charges or IUC on approaching calls from the system of the other administrator, and these end charges are presently 14 paise every moment. Jio has favored requiring no charge on approaching calls. 

Any expansion in end charge would enable occupant administrators as they to have a tendency to get all the more approaching calls, particularly from systems where voice calls are free. Occupants, then again, challenge that ending approaching approaches their systems costs 30-35 paise every moment. 

Under the 'Bill and Keep' or BAK administration, the administrators just keep record of approaching approaches their system however don't raise any request from different administrators. COAI has charged that contentions by "couple of members" for the bill and keep demonstrate, "featuring that TRAI should execute BAK to agree to its testimony submitted to the Supreme Court is an endeavor to misshape realities to misdirect and make a false impression among people in general on the loose". 

In its most recent letter dated July 22 to TRAI, COAI has likewise noticed that numerous members at the open house exchange asserted that in the year 2011, TRAI closed to actualize BAK administration in two years. 

"Treating this sworn statement, that has been recorded in a progressing suit, proportionate to a direction; these members have been requesting the usage of the BAK administration", it included. COAI, in any case, held back before naming the administrators. 

"It is obviously clear that TRAI in its sworn statement submitted to the SC had recorded symmetry of activity as a pre-condition to execute the 'Bill and Keep' administration," Rajan S Mathews, chief general of COAI guaranteed in the letter. 

"TRAI, while confining IUC 2015 thought about the present levels of activity asymmetry and discovered it not reasonable for usage of 'Bill and Keep'. Hence, it again dismisses the execution of 'Bill and Keep' in 2015 control," Mathews said. COAI letter likewise illuminated that Aircel and Reliance Jio have "unique perspectives" and that they will "speak to independently" on the issue.
