Telecom regulator, TRAI has said that it has constituted three subgroups in areas like licencing, tariff and service quality, to identify and clear out obsolete regulations and order.
Commenting on the issue, a senior TRAI official told the media, "The entire exercise is likely to be completed in next 2-3 months. The three advisors of TRAI -- Sanjeev Banzal (Networks, Spectrum and Licensing), Vinod Kotwal (Financial & Economic Analysis) and Asit Kadayan (Quality of Service) -- are heading the individual subgroups."
"The idea is to identify obsolete regulations that have already outlived their purpose," the official said.
As per reports, the subgroups, which also include industry representatives, will jointly examine and identify regulations and tariff orders that are out of sync with the times. One such area of this could be paging where services and related regulations have become outdated and are no longer relevant. Similarly, there may be regulations related to technology, like CDMA, which may be looked at during the review.
