These calls is brought in the name of the off-net voice calls. While Jio to Jio number, incoming calls and Jio to landline calls will be free as it was before, There is no additional charge for it.

For off-net voice calls, Reliance Jio has introduced four IUC top-up vouchers for prepaid customers. These range from Rs 10 to Rs 100. Jio said that additional data will be given to customers in exchange for IUC top up vouchers, so that customers do not have to pay additional tariffs. Apart from this, postpaid Jio customers will be charged 6 paise per minute for off-net data outgoing calls. Additional data will be also given to postpaid customers.
Reliance Jio issued a statement to the media stating that the telecom operator has to pay an interconnect usage charge for off-net voice calls on other networks. For this reason, customers will be now charged under compulsion. The operator claimed that they paid Rs 13,500 from his revenue due to the interconnect usage charge in the last three years. Jio alleges that in 2017, TRAI changed the IUC charge. But other telecom operators had raised the tariff of voice calls to Rs 1.50 per minute.

Reliance Jio has assured that 6 paise per minute will be charged for outgoing off-net calls until TRAI cancels the IUC altogether. It is worth noting that TRAI has set a target of zero termination charge till 1 January 2020. If this happens, customers will not have to pay any charges for off-net voice calls after this date.
