Trai distorted competitive landscape for one operator: COAI 21.2.2018 DNA: India
Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) on Tuesday lashed out at Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) saying its latest tariff order amendment strengthens the ambitions of one particular operator with deep pockets and monopolistic designs. Without naming the new telecom player Reliance Jio, COAI in a statement said, "Over the past 12-18 months, regulation after regulation put out by Trai have ended up in distorting the competitive landscape in favour of one operator while putting all other operators at a serious disadvantage." "An environment of regulation and policy that is not based on an equal footing will further aggravate the deep financial stress and kill future investments and innovation in an industry that has put India on the global map," Rajan Mathews, director general, COAI, said. "This has destroyed the financials of an industry which was the poster child of India's reforms with tens of thousands of jobs and tens of billions of dollars of investment at stake," he said.

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’.

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 ...
