Jio tariff plans in line with regulations, claims TRAI

Telecom regulator TRAI has said Reliance Jio tariff plans are in compliance with its regulations and the existing tariff orders. TRAI is expected to communicate the same to the incumbent operators including Bharti Airtel and Idea Cellular, which had moved telecom tribunal TDSAT against the regulator for allowing the Mukesh Ambani-led venture to continue free promotional offer beyond the stipulated 90 days.

The decision comes just days after the Attorney General communicated to TRAI that Reliance Jio tariff plans do not violate any existing regulation or order issued by the regulator, and therefore it should not intervene in the matter.

In terms of market dominance, Reliance Jio said it accounts for a mere 6 percent market share in the country whereas the Competition Commission of India (CCI) norms specify 30 percent threshold to trigger the misuse of market dominance clause.
