R.S. Sharma gets extension as TRAI chairman for two years

August 10, 2018

The Government of India has extended the tenure of Dr Ram Sewak Sharma as chief of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) by two years. This came a day before he was supposed to retire from his office.

His first term was marked by the entry of Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (RJIL) in September, 2016. The operator offered free voice and data offers thereby creating a price war in the industry.

The incumbents ( Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular) were often seen at loggerheads with Sharma over a variety of issues, many of which are still pending in courts or with the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT).
