In a letter addressed to telecom companies in India, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India clarified that Reliance Jio's free call offers were not discriminatory or non-compliant.
Telecom operators including Vodafone and Airtel had approached TRAI accusing Jio of using "discriminatory and predatory" tactics to gain market advantages.
TRAI welcomed the announcement stating that it had vindicated their stance.
Reliance Jio calls for additional interconnection points
Reliance Jio accused other players in the Indian telecom industry of not releasing adequate interconnection points for its connectivity.
The telecom company said that it would take legal action against other networks due to the setbacks Jio faced after its launch on 5 September.
Reliance Jio's network had taken a hit due to interconnectivity issues, with almost 5 crore call failures last week.
Accusations of non-compliance, inaction
"No action was taken for the last several weeks, resulting in non-compliance of TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) regulation on the quality of service which mandates that POI congestion should not affect more than 1 call in every 200 calls made," Reliance said.
