Reliance Jio to Court: TRAI held its free offer to customers as legitimate
Manoj Gairola |  New Delhi |  15 Feb 2017

Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio today informed Delhi High Court that the telecom regulatory authority of India (TRAI) has held its free offer to subscribers as perfectly legitimate.

The Court was hearing a plea by Vodafone India alleging that Reliance Jio "blatantly violated" TRAI's tariff orders, directions and regulations. Vodafone said that the regulator failed to prohibit RJIO from violating the tariff orders by allowing it to continue with its free offers.

Vodafone has also said that TRAI has not implemented its own circulars which lay down that all tariffs must be compliant of inter-connection usage charges (IUC) and be non-discriminatory and non-predatory.

It had earlier informed the court that each day's delay by TRAI in implementing its tariff orders was causing a huge loss to the company.

Next hearing is on February 21. The issue will be taken up by the Telecom Disputes Settlement Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) on February 20. The tribunal has sought the clarification after fresh appeals were filed by Airtel and Idea Cellular against TRAI's January 31 decision giving a clean chit to JIO tariffs.
