This apparently has not gone down well with other network carriers. Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and others, who form the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), have registered a complaint with the government, accusing Reliance Jio of choking networks of its members, and rolling out full-fledged services to customers under the garb of trial offer.

However, the Mukesh Ambani-owned company lashed out at false accusations of the rivals and met DoT (Department of Telecommunications) officials to lodge a complaint against (COAI) for denying to increase inter-connection points and accused them of breach of license agreement and impeding Reliance Jio's smooth entrance to the market.
