^^ So this is applicable only after your current pack expires? The existing, running packs will continue making free calls to other network until their expiry?

Apparently yes. But nothing is clear as of now. I'm also waiting for it to take effect.

Actually I am not a Jio user. My wife was, but she ported out last month so I wasn't sure how this IUC works. My colleague is on Jio and sits in the next cubicle. I asked him to give me an (offnet) call and there was no issue in connecting. He hasn't gotten any top up done.
Reading the second line of the second point posted in the shot above, I believe that it comes into effect only after a new recharge.

Regards,
Saket

If TRAI stands by its earlier decision of scrapping IUC charges from 1st Jan 2020, it wouldn't be a big deal for managing this for 3 months. And for every 10 rupee recharge, users get 1 GB of data. Jio indeed seems to be doing well in compensating for these charges.

This article gives a clear understanding of why Jio decided to charge its users. Apparently most of the other network users tend to give missed calls to Jio users and Jio ended up being the one to pay IUC rather than to receive it.

Good to hear this change in strategy just 2 months since the launch. But I am not seeing availability of JioFiber yet where I stay in Bangalore - so its a wait and watch.

Also so far whoever has got it keep saying they are getting only 40 mbps due to the router limitations.
