TRAI gives green signal, soon flyers to access mobile and internet services on-board aircraft 19.1.2018 DNA: Popular News
Flyers in India would soon be able to access mobile and internet services on board aircraft as telecom regulator on Friday recommended allowing these services as part of in-flight connectivity in the Indian airspace. However, the operation of mobile communication on aircraft (MCA) services should be permitted with minimum height restriction of 3,000 metres in Indian airspace, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said in its recommendations on ‘In-Flight Connectivity’. The height restriction is placed to avoid accessing the terrestrial mobile networks. Trai said 83% of the passengers would prefer airlines that provided internet connections. Air passengers expect the same kind of connectivity on board as they do at home or office. Also, there was an increasing interest in use of mobile phones on aircraft, Trai said, adding that already over 30 airlines, and 40 jurisdictions, allow such usage on board. The Department of Telecommunications had sought views of Trai in August last year on this matter. ...

Vinod Rai behaved like a 'cat that shuts its eyes and then declares the universe is dark': A Raja 18.1.2018 DNA: India
 Within a month of his acquittal in the 2G spectrum scam case, former telecom minister Andimuthu Raja has in a tell-all book questioned former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's "palpable silence" in defending the telecom policy that he himself had approved. In his book '2G Sage Unfolds', Raja slammed the then CAG Vinod Rai saying the office of the Comptroller and Auditor General was "severely compromised" by Rai who had "ulterior motives" in over-reaching his constitutional function while auditing accounts relating to the 2G spectrum allocation. Raja claimed that he had got Manmohan Singh's "approval to go ahead" for allocating 2G telecom spectrum to new players after he explained the whole process and that there was enough spectrum available. Singh, he went on to claim, was repeatedly misinformed by his advisers and that telecom lobbies had influence over the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). "The UPA government's and even more so Dr Manmohan Singh's palpable silence in relation to defending my wholly ...

Trai slashes ISD incoming call termination rate to 30 paise 12.1.2018 DNA: Top News
 Telecom regulator Trai today slashed international incoming call termination rate to 30 paise from 53 paise, mainly to curb the "grey route" and enhance revenues of Indian telecom operators. However, industry body COAI said the decision will lead to annual revenue loss of Rs 2,000 crore which the Indian telecom operators earn from foreign service providers. "The Authority has reduced the termination charges payable by an International Long Distance Operator (ILDO) to the access provider in whose network the call terminates from Rs 0.53 per minute to Rs 0.30 per minute," Trai said in a statement. The new rate will be effective from February 1. Telecom firms levy termination charge on operators from whose networks calls have been made for transmitting them to the subscriber. In a background note on its decision to reduce the international termination charge (ITC), Trai said the move will reduce the attractiveness of the grey route for carrying international incoming calls and the telecom operators' ...
