Social Media Calling to be Chargeable Along with WhatsApp, you take advantage of free video calling or free voice calling from all other social media apps such as Facebook, Instagram, but now there is a bad news for you. Now these apps will not be able to provide free calling facility to their users. If TRAI’s proposal is implemented, then you may have to pay a charge for making calls.
telecommunication department proposal
According to a report in The Economic Times, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) was asked by the Department of Telecom to give its views on the proposal to regulate Internet-based calls. TRAI returned this proposal in the year 2008. Actually, at that time the development of internet in India had just started. Now in view of the growing world of digital, the Department of Telecommunications has again taken forward this proposal and asked TRAI to consider it. The idea of working on the principle of Same Service, Same Rules for the Complete Industry has been introduced by the Department of Telecommunications.
Will the facility of free calling on the internet end?
TRAI had said in 2008 that Internet Service Providers can be allowed to make Internet calls on the General Telephone Network but they will have to pay an inter connection charge. Simultaneously installation of valid interception equipment would be necessary and compliance of various security agencies would have to be done. After that feedback was given again in 2016-17. According to the news, the Department of Telecom is again considering these things.
For a long time, telecom operators have wanted to implement the same law for all Internet-based calling and messaging services, as it is for telecom operators and Internet service providers.
