The decisions taken by the TRAI, during the past two years, have hurt all the operators, except Reliance Jio, said Nick Read, Vodafone Group CEO. Talking on the sidelines of the Mobile World Congress at Barcelona yesterday, Nick Read accused that the new definition given by the TRAI, to identify Predatory Pricing, was helpful to Reliance Jio. Similarly, the decision of the TRAI to cut down the Inter User connect Charge (IUC) by 57% also helped Reliance Jio, said Nick Read. He further stated that the telecom tariffs in India are "artificially low". Nick Read has demanded that "Level Playing Field" should be ensured in the Indian telecom sector. The views of the Vodafone Group CEO reflect the ground reality prevailing in the Indian telecom industry. Will the government pay heed?
