Deadline to submit call drop compliance report extended by Trai

By March 9th, 2016 AT 1:45 PM

Trai, the Indian telecom regulator, has provided an extra week to telecom operators for submitting their compliance report on compensating consumers for call drops, even as the Supreme Court is set to take a final view on the matter tomorrow.

Both GSM and CDMA telcos had last week urged the telecom regulator not to enforce its order till the Supreme Court gave a final ruling on the matter on March 10. Both the lobby bodies, in a joint letter, had urged Trai to keep its order “in abeyance since the matter is sub judice” before the Supreme Court.

Subsequently, the Trai has decided to extend the last date for submission of compliance report to the provisions of the Telecom Consumers Protection (Ninth Amendment) Regulations, 2015, by a week, media reports said.

Trai had earlier given these telcos till March 7 to submit such compliance report after the Delhi High Court upheld its October 2015 regulation mandating compensation for consumers at Re 1 for every call dropped, capped at Rs 3 a day from January 1, 2016.
