New telecom policy will be application driven rather than connectivity driven, says telecom ministry

July 12, 2017

The telecom ministry has stated that the new telecom policy will be application driven as compared to the National Telecom Policy, 2012 which was connectivity driven. Further, the ministry has said that the policy will focus on the end users and will look at the newer opportunities for expanding the availability of telecom services.

Moreover, the ministry will seek views of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) while framing the policy. The ministry has also decided to involve a large pool of experts from outside the department; companies such as Apple, Google and Amazon; citizens and other stakeholders for framing the new policy.
