Hi Rupam,
First, UE establishes connection with IMS PDN using the PDC connectivity procedure. As part of PDN connectivity procedure, UE gets a new IP address. Once PDN connectivity procedure gets completed, UE starts with SIP signalling (all the SIP signalling messages exchange over new IMS bearer). As part of SIP signalling, application server based informs to PCRF regarding QoS requirement of new application and as resultant, PCRF initiates dedicated bearer creation with QCI "1". This QCI bearer 1 carries voip packets.
In short, PCRF is the node in LTE network which initiates dedicated bearer creation for the voice call.

Whenever a new technology comes it provides better user experience. Since the role out of a new technology requires a lot of money investment. It makes services expensive for users. For what reasons an operator would like to deploy VoLTE when it is already have Circuit switch fall back for voice services. In India, Reliance Jio is a new player in telecom market that's why it is rolled out VoLTE since it was not having any legacy technology to provide voice services. What about others ? Are they deploying VoLTE just for the namesake that they also support VoLTE or really there is a need for that ?
