The TRAI's recommendations also include granting critical and essential service status to submarine cable laying and repair and creating a single window portal for inter-departmental and inter-ministerial clearances. The move is seen as a major step forward for the industry, which has undergone significant technological changes over the last three decades.

Commenting on the recommendations, TV Ramachandran, President of the Broadband India Forum, said: "Coming on the footsteps of the recently announced Space Policy 2023, these proposed reforms in Ease of Doing Business, along with the new Space Policy, are likely to give a big boost to the entire Satellite Communications and Broadcasting sector."

TRAI Suggestions

The suggestions made by the regulator for ease of doing business (EoDB) in the telecom sector include reducing the heavy compliance burden on the operators, simplifying the verification process for license fees and spectrum usage charges, granting critical and essential service status to submarine cable laying and repair, and a single window portal for inter-departmental and/or inter-ministerial clearances-all of which are extremely progressive steps.
