New Delhi: Telecom Regulatory Authority Trai is doing its best to prevent illegal 'Voice Over Internet Protocol'. This is the reason that after reducing the termination fee on domestic calls, it has now reduced the rates of international incoming calls from 53 paise per minute to 30 paise per minute today. New rates will be effective from February 1.

In an official statement of Telecom Regulatory Authority, TRAI, it was informed that "the authority has reduced the rate of payment made by any international service provider to the network accepting calls from 53 paise per minute to 30 paise per minute." '

With this announcement TRAI has also mentioned the presence of illegal methods. ISD calls are made by making illegal 'Voice Over Internet Protocol' to avoid charges on calls made to India from abroad. TRAI said that they needed to be eliminated. It is expected that these companies will make the ISD calls affordable.

TRAI said that with the serious challenges facing the country's security in the illegal ways, the country and domestic telecom companies also suffer loss of revenue.

Let us tell you that earlier this month, TRAI had decided to reduce the termination fee on domestic calls from 14 paise per minute to 6 paise per minute from October 1. At the same time, TRAI declared that there will be no terminal fee of any kind from January 1, 2020.

TRAI announced that all telecom companies except Reliance Jio were in the fray. They said that this would be the financially troubled telecom industry and pressures in the past.
