After tariff cut, TRAI eyeing to slash roaming fees

14 Sep 2006

After cutting call rate tariffs, the next target for the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is to cut high roaming charges. The TRAI recently disallowed additional revenue share for roaming calls between visiting network and terminating network.

The regulator indicated that it might come out with a consultation paper to review the present roaming tariff regime.

There is no justification for a revenue sharing arrangement among operators in respect of roaming calls, the TRAI said in a statement.

As per the prevailing interconnect usage charges (IUC) regulation, uniform termination charge of 30 per minute is applicable for all types of calls, the regulator said.

The prescribed termination charge is cost-based, independent of the network from where the call is originating or terminating and also independent of the tariff charged by the operators, the TRAI said
