Telecom Stocks Trade Lower After TRAI Defers Scrapping Of IUC Charges


Shares of telecom companies are trading mixed after the telecom regulator TRAI on Tuesday deferred its decision to scrap interconnect usage charges (IUC) by a year to January 2021. Consequently, telecom companies will continue to receive 6 paise per minute upon receiving call from another network. Say when a Vodafone user calls on Airtel, Vodafone will have to pay 6 paise per minute to Airtel and viceversa.
