What To Expect:

A meeting chaired by Telecom Secretary Rakesh Garg took place on Monday in which various aspects of improvement in the service quality were discussed. As per the reports, a letter had been dispatched to the concerned parties stating that the government had decided to hold a meeting to review the service issues such as frequent call drops, excess billing, non-transparency in billing system, etc. The primary focus of this meeting was to address service issues in telecom services offered in Delhi, Mumbai, Maharashtra.
