Talking on mobile phones can soon become more expensive. The mobile call rate may increase by 20 to 25 percent. This can happen with the commencement of the Adjusted Single Revenue (AGR) recovery process from telecom companies. Experts say that companies will put the burden of AGR on mobile subscribers, which will increase the call rate once again.

According to sources, the Department of Telecommunications is preparing to recover from all the AGR dues companies including Airtel, Voda-Idea. Soon these companies can be sent letters to pay AGR. Significantly, the Supreme Court had ordered the telecom companies to pay AGR of Rs 1.47 lakh crore by January 24.

After this, the companies once again moved the Supreme Court and demanded an extension to repay the amount. The Supreme Court also agreed to the hearing but did not say that it should not pay the dues of AGR. Sources associated with the Department of Telecommunications say that if the hearing is not held this week, then the process of sending letters for AGR recovery will begin. According to the DoT, 15 companies owe AGR. However, many of them have either closed down or have consolidated their business from the Indian market. 

Up to 25 percent increase possible 

Telecom experts say that mobile companies can increase the recharge fee by up to 25 per cent to pay AGR. This may be the second increase within two months. From December 1, 2019, companies had increased their bills by up to 50 percent. Along with this, many types of discounts were also eliminated. If companies increase the tariff boucher by 10 percent, then it is expected to get a revenue of 35 thousand crore rupees in the next 3 years. 

Pressure will increase on companies 

 why mobile internet and calling services are becoming expensive 

The process of charging AGR will put pressure on telecom companies. The companies have been incurring losses since the arrival of Jio. According to government figures, Airtel has a liability of Rs 35,586 crore. Of this, a license fee of Rs 21,682 crore and spectrum usage fee of Rs 13,904.01 crore are included. The total liability in the case of Vodafone Idea is Rs 53,038 crore. This includes a spectrum usage fee of Rs 24,729 crore and license fee of Rs 28,309 crore. 

Demand for 10 years 

The companies had demanded a 10-year stay with a two-year moratorium to pay AGR statutory dues. In October, the Supreme Court upheld the fees demanded by the government on the revenue received from telecom companies.

Live owed

Reliance Jio gave Rs 195 crore to the Department of Telecommunications for all outstanding dues related to AGR till 31 January 2020. Official sources gave this information. In the year 2016, Jio started its services and created panic in the telecom sector by offering free calls. The company has added 300 million consumers in just three years.

Non-telecom companies also have heavy liability

Non-telecom sector companies also owe Rs 2.4 lakh crore after the Supreme Court's decision to pay AGR. These include Gail India Limited, Power Grid etc. These companies have licensed to run the brandband on optic fiber cable. The cable runs along GAIL's pipeline spread across the country and the transmission lines of the power grid. After the decision of the Supreme Court, DoT has sought a statutory arrear of Rs 1.72 lakh crore from GAIL India. Similarly, he has demanded a balance of Rs 21 thousand crore on Powergrid and Rs 48 thousand crore from Oil India
