Reliance Jio’s decision to pass on the burden, of having to shell out 6 paise per minute to outgoing calls made to networks of other operators, to customers, has now resulted in both criticism as well as support for the company. The focus now is on the latter aspect. This has led to the creation and trend of the “ILoveJio” trend on micro-blogging site Twitter. There is also a separate trend called “India with Jio” that has also been randomly coming up amongst the top 10 Twitter trends.

Hence, if you are a Reliance Jio user, what is your reaction to the telco’s latest ruling of levying 6 paise for every outgoing call minute. Remember that this is applicable to call made from Jio to other networks only. This is not applicable to intra-Jio calls. As far as social media trends are concerned, check out below Twitter trends. A cross-section of Twitterati seem to be completely fine with the 6 paise per minute outgoing calls to other networks, but this section seemingly desires “digital freedom”.  




At this point in time, the position of incumbent telcos such as Airtel and Vodafone-Idea is unknown, with respect to passing on the burden of having to pay IUC (of 6 paise per minute) to subscribers. For now, Jio has also come out a list of custom IUC-driven tariff plans that also offer additional data. These packs from Rs 10 – for prepaid users and offer 1GB 4G data with 124 minutes of free outgoing calls to other networks.
