TRAI imposes Rs 3,050 Cr penalty on Airtel, Idea and Vodafone

PTI

New Delhi: Telecom regulator TRAI on Friday recommended a total penalty of Rs 3,050 crore on incumbent players Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular for denying interconnection facility to newcomer Reliance Jio Infocomm.

Bharti Airtel and Vodafone have been slapped with a fine of Rs 50 crore for 21 circles each (except J&K). Idea faced the same amount of penalty for 19 circles each.

Reliance Jio, which launched its services on September 5, had approached Trai alleging that incumbent players were denying it sufficient number of interconnection ports leading to huge call failures on its network.

The regulator recommended to the Department of Telecom imposing penalties on the big three players after it found that the operators were non-compliant with licence conditions.

Denial of interconnection “appears to be with ulterior motive to stifle competition and is anti consumer”, Trai said. The regulator stopped short of recommending cancellation of their telecom licences saying it may lead to “significant consumer inconvenience”.

Reliance Jio has said its customers are facing 75 per cent call failures on Airtel, Vodafone and Idea cellular networks due to insufficient interconnection facility provided by the incumbent operators.

As per the service quality norms, not more than five out of 1000 calls should fail at the point of interconnect.

Coming down heavily on the erring operators, the regulator went to the extent of saying that the non-compliance of licence terms and condition “warrants” recommendations for revocation of licence.

“However, the authority is mindful of the fact that revocation of the licence will entail significant consumer inconvenience and therefore in view of the larger public interest involved, the authority recommends a penal action of Rs 50 crore per LSA (circle)…,” it said.

When contacted, the companies refused to comment on the issue.

so no call drop or interconnection problem..

Offtopic:
i am sure Ambani force government to cancel Termination call charge (already no termination call charges for Landlines) – As jio user calling to AIrtel means, jio has to pay 12 paise/minute to Airtel, called as termination charge to other operator.

The fine of merger of vodafone and hutch ?
They already won the case in supreme court as both were foreign companies and merged outside india and TRAI has no legal rules to fine them outside india.

No thats wrong,In jan 2012 the SC ordered Income Tax to give back the tax amount to vodafone and after that governmemt changed the laws (in may 2012) related to case by which they charged the income tax again.but vodafone never paid it again.

First of all big fine should be slapped on BSNL. At-least call connects to Airtel, idea……after trying some 6-7 times. But bsnl is hard blocking, call fails to connect even after unlimited times.

Just tried after your comment and it was blocking. And everyone here says same. I can say BSNL is worst among airtel, idea, voda…and everyone when it comes to blocking JIO.
