The Supreme Court on Friday gave three-month extension to telecom regulator TRAI for completing formulation of the new Interconnection Usage Charge (IUC) regime.
A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice S.H. Kapadia allowed the urgent plea of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) seeking more time for IUC.
Interconnection charges are paid by a telecom service provider for using network of other operators for transmitting and completing a call.
The Apex court had on February 4 given TRAI four months for coming up with recommendation on telecom interconnection charges, which expired on June 4.
