TRAI slashes IUC to 6 paise
The TRAI has decided to cut mobile interconnect usage charges (IUC) from 14 paise a minute to 6 paise a minute from October 1. IUC or termination charges are charges payable by a telecom operator whose subscriber originates the call to the operator on whose network the call terminates. For other types of calls, such as wireline to mobile and wire-line to wire-line, the termination charge will continue to remain zero. From January 1, 2020 onwards, the termination charge for all types of domestic calls will be zero.
