The Competition Commission has rejected the complaint against Vodafone Ideas, Infocomm, Airtel and Sify Technologies claim that they charge more for overseas calls than the cap set by telecommunications regulator Trai.

Ranch
The order from a complaint by Canadian telecom operator Teleclub Canada (Alberta Ltd).

Ranch
The complainant states that Indian telecommunications have jointly decided charge a standard rate of $ 0.0053 for inbound calls terminated in the Indian network, instead of the rate determined by Trai.

Ranch
According IUC regulations, in 2018, telecommunications regulators set the international termination fee (ITC) for international inbound calls to wired and wireless networks at 0.30 rupees per minute.

It added that after another meeting in February 2018, telecom had further increased incoming call rates to $ 0.0115 per minute.

In addition, they allegedly harassed the company by strangling its port used send traffic.

Ranch
The Competition Commission of India (CCI) subsequently sought the opinion of the Trai Authority.

Ranch
CCI noted from the submissions from Trai that according the Interconnection Utilization (IUC) Regulations, the regulator has provided for ITC for international incoming calls, but the International Settlement Charge (ISC) is not subject to this specification and must be based Mutual between Indian long-distance and foreign service providers.

Ranch
CCI states that the complainant “misunderstood the international termination fee, which is ITC as an international settlement fee, that is, ISC”.

Ranch
In handling the complaint, CCI said: "The commission has not found any evidence that the OP has determined the rate through any joint action between them for investigation."
