Telecom companies against TRAI's proposal to save consumers from "bill shocks" 29.5.2015 DNA: Urban Tales
Private telecom operators Airtel Reliance Jio, Vodafone and Idea Cellular have opposed telecom regulator TRAI's proposal to protect consumers from default activation of mobile internet services that often leads to 'bill shocks'. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) came out with draft rules on April 29 proposing that operators should not activate mobile internet service without explicit consent of consumers and it should be deactivated on sending an SMS to toll free number 1925. Consumers get bill shocks due to default activation of mobile internet which continues to be in use even after they exhaust subscribed data limit. The cost of mobile data used after subscription limit vary from network to network and it can go as high as about Rs 10,000 per gigabyte which under scheme can be purchased for about Rs 175 from leading telecom companies.

Congress rubbishes ex TRAI Chairman Baijal's charge against Manmohan Singh 26.5.2015 DNA: India
 Congress on Tuesday dismissed as "imaginary, false and baselsss" former TRAI Chairman Pradip Baijal's charge that the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had warned him of harm if he did not cooperate on 2G telecom licenses. "It is all imaginary, false and baseless", party's communication department in charge Randeep Surjewala told reporters alleging that this has been done by Baijal to "shield" himself from CBI as he himself was an accused in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case. Surjewala said that Baijal is also an accused for fraud and cheating in a case filed by CBI against him when he was Disinvestment Secretary when Arun Shourie was the Disinvestment Minister in the Atal Behari Vajpayee government. Besides, he said it was Baijal who had evolved the 'first come, first served' norm. Seeking to project Baijal in poor light, Surjewala said that after retirement, he had also served as a director in the firm of controversial Niira Radia, who had only recently given clean chit by the CBI. Baijal had made ...

2G scam: BJP ministers attack UPA over revelations by ex-TRAI Chairman 26.5.2015 DNA: Wide Angle
Latching onto former TRAI chairman Pradip Baijal's accusations against ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in connection with the 2G scam case, BJP ministers in the Modi government today attacked the erstwhile UPA dispensation, calling it a "coalition in corruption". "The revelation makes it clear that it was a coalition in corruption...," Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar told reporters in Coimbatore. Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said Baijal's claims in his book reflected how the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government functioned. "The government of Dr Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi had to face lot of shame because of 2G scam. Repeatedly they used to talk about zero loss and make fun of CAG report... now if Pradip Baijal has written this, I haven't read his book, it is really unfortunate," Prasad told a press conference in Bengaluru. Baijal, an accused in the 2G spectrum allocation scam case, has alleged that Singh had warned him of "harm" if he did not cooperate. He has also alleged ...

2G: Big claim in tell all book 26.5.2015 Times Now: Home
In a self-published tell-all book, former Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman Pradip Baijal has alleged that former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had warned him of "harm" if he didn't cooperate in the 2G case. Baijal, who was probed for several years for his role in the 2G scam and disinvestment of properties, claims that UPA II ruined his reputation to divert corruption charges against its coalition Government. "I had warned many in UPA II that all enquiries against me and others, would lead back to the PM, as he had indeed approved the actions of ministers and ministries in his government.

The actions of Dayanidhi Maran/(A) Raja/coal minister were approved by him, and he is equally culpable for all the losses computed by the CAG," says Baijal in his book 'The Complete Story of Indian Reforms: 2G, Power and Private Enterprise - A Practitioner's ...
