Telecom major Bharti Airtel has opposed the consultation paper issued by regulator Trai to review interconnection usage charges (IUC), saying it is not being done in accordance with the directions of TDSAT and the Supreme Court and hence needs to be reframed.


"We are highly surprised to note that the consultation paper released by TRAI on April 27, 2011, has not taken into consideration the observations and directions of either the Supreme Court or the TDSAT," the company said in a letter to Trai.


Trai had sought comments on whether the time has come to abolish the termination charge, a levy paid by an operator to another service provider on whose network the call ends.

Phone companies pay one another IUC for using each other's network to complete calls. Often, IUC changes affect consumer tariffs.
