The TRC disclosed a detailed breakdown of direct transfers to the public treasury for the years (2021-2022-2023), with a cumulative amount of approximately JD303 million. This significant financial injection into the public treasury is set to play a pivotal role in supporting various national initiatives and developmental projects.

Amassed since its inception, the total sum of TRC’s direct transfers to the public treasury stands at JD2.161 billion. This amount encompasses various revenue streams, including annual licensing returns, revenue shares, frequency fees, and postal license fees.

The financial success of TRC can be attributed to the diverse sources of its financial resources, including annual revenue shares derived from the operational revenues of mobile phone companies, returns from licenses and permits (encompassing frequency returns), fees, and penalties levied in adherence to telecommunications laws. Additionally, funds allocated in the state general budget and other resources sanctioned by the cabinet also supplement the Commission's financial capabilities.
