At this juncture, event Vodafone-Idea has resorted to levying IUC on subscribers. But these would come only after a few thousand free voice calling minutes - applicable to non-Vodafone numbers are exhausted. Under its erstwhile Rs 1699 scheme (now Rs 2349 prepaid plan), these free voice calls amount to 12000 minutes per day.
