The Delhi High Court has asked the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to undertake action in accordance with the law against unregistered entities and persons not complying with regulations on unsolicited commercial communications (UCC).

To this end, the High Court has also warned TRAI of imposing a cost on it for failing to implement the law and granted it eight weeks to take action.

The court expects that the sector regulator will adjudicate the show cause notices issued by it to the unregistered entities and show progress on the action taken. The court noted that TRAI’s counsel has shown some definitions of provision.However, it added that they are of no use if no action is to be taken by the sector regulator after issuance of show cause notices.
