By September 2nd, 2015 AT 2:05 PM

Such an assessment will help the consumers to understand the capability of the telecom operators and choose operators wisely, according to a government source. RS Sharma, Chairman, TRAI has been asked to draft rules that make it mandatory for the telecom operators to reveal such information (of infrastructural capability) to people.

There are also reports that PM Narendra Modi has personally informed Rakesh Garg, Telecom Secretary that the issue of call drop would make people ‘curse’ the government and will also affect data services in the upcoming days.

So, TRAI would only act on the Intervention of someone like the Prime minister. That is really worrisome. That means, no matter how many organizations and individuals cry for Intervention to improve one of the basic necessities in life, those who call themselves ‘Regulators’ won’t simply act.
