Streamlining Policy: NDCP, 2018 set to steer the country into a digital era

Streamlining Policy: NDCP, 2018 set to steer the country into a digital era
In September 2018, the cabinet approved the New Telecom Policy. This has been renamed the National Digital Communications Policy (NDCP), 2018, to reflect its broader scope as it covers several new areas. Given the country’s growing digital aspirations, the NDCP, 2018 comes at an opportune time and with big promise. It seems to have the right look and feel, as it provides a broad roadmap for steering the country into the digital era, by suggesting an overhaul of the existing policy and regulatory framework, acknowledging certain long-standing concerns and supporting services based on next-gen technologies. Despite the NDCP’s visionary theme, significant groundwork and a major change in the regulatory mindset would be required before this policy shows concrete and positive results. The regulator and government departments must work with the industry and take inputs from users to deal with the many challenges that will arise.
