The Indian telecom regulator also geared up to launch web-based “Telecom Consumer Grievances Monitoring System” (TCGM) by July 15, which enabled the customers to lodge their complaints and monitor their redressal on TRAI website via Internet.

Earlier in February-2010, TRAI also directed all basic telephone service providers, unified access service providers (UAS) and cellular mobile service providers (CMTS) to publish the performance with respect to the “TRAI benchmark of Quality of Service (QoS)” parameter on their website on quarterly basis.
