Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

Leading telecom operators Reliance Jio and Airtel are once again locked in a fierce battle. It is over the duration of rings for outgoing calls. Recently, Reliance Jio proposed to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) that the outgoing call ringing time should be reduced from 45 s to 25 s. These differences between these two telecom companies have been seen when the authority has been discussing call durations for the last two weeks.

According to media reports, Airtel wants to keep the phone ringing time of 45 s during the outgoing call. But Jio is trying to reduce this time to 25 s. A third mobile service provider company wants to keep 30 s. Airtel has argued before the authority that the time of ringing the phone should be at least 45 s. The network must have sufficient time so that phone calls can be received.

Jio’s argument, on the other hand, is that the resources of the spectrum can be saved when the phone ringing time is 25 s during an outgoing call. According to Jio, more than 94% of the calls on its network are received before 25 s. The authority yesterday held an open house discussion with the stakeholders following a floating constellation paper filed with the authority last month.

Last month, Airtel wrote a letter to the authority stating that outgoing calls made on the Jio network were cut in 25 s instead of 45 s. In such a situation, he can also cut calls made from Jio network in 25 s. Airtel also argued before the authority that the timer at the time of phone ringing should be decided on the basis of network preference.

Airtel said that the call time on any network should be the same. It should be kept for 45 s so that users have enough time to pick up the phone. If the phone ringing time will be different on different networks, then the user of one network will get more time to answer the phone, while the user of another network will get less time to pick up the phone.
