Law of Telecommunication (MINISTRY OF COMMUNICATIONS)
Telecom is one of the fastest growing areas of technology and its rapid growth has allowed the access of information at electronic speed from almost everywhere in the world. Telecommunication in India prevails back since the East India Company introduced Telegraph services in India. This significant branch of law is concerned with the Telecommunication sector in India and is governed by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), a statutory body set by government of India to regulate telecom services, including fixation/revision of tariffs for telecom services. The statutory body is to create and nurture the expansion of telecommunication sector in India and to provide safeguard and provisions of fair and transparent environment that benefits all consumers.
Persons or businesses aggrieved of matters falling under Telecommunications can seek relief and approach the adjudicatory body Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT), which was set up to adjudicate any dispute between a licensor and a licensee, two or more service providers, between service providers and a group of consumers.
