Here's how Reliance Jio customers can avoid paying IUC

Reliance Jio started charging its customers 6 paise per minute as Interconnect Usage Charge (IUC) for all outgoing voice calls made to non-Jio mobile numbers. And now, with TRAI deciding to retain IUC for another year, Jio users will have to continue
paying this amount in 2020 as well.

How to avoid IUC? Well, use Wi-Fi Calling :-

Now, Jio has rolled out Wi-Fi calling in India, and it works on any Wi-Fi network across the country. Hence, to avoid paying IUC, you can use this free-of-cost service to make audio or video calls from your home, office, or any other public Wi-Fi hotspot.

At present, Jio's Wi-Fi Calling is supported by more than 150 smartphones.

No Wi-Fi network? Try a data call via WhatsApp :-

In case you don't have access to a Wi-Fi network, you can use third-party apps like WhatsApp, Telegram, and Google Duo to make audio/video calls, using cellular data. This way, you can again avoid paying the charges for off-net calls.

Those using an iPhone can also use FaceTime to connect with their friends and family if they also have a compatible device.

Last resort: Pick a plan that offers off-net calling minutes

Finally, Jio has updated all its prepaid plans to pack data and off-net talk time in a single plan. Depending on your needs, you can pick one of these packs, so that you don't have to pay any amount for making calls to other networks.
