Telecom operators under the aegis of Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) have urged the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to expedite the process of fixing floor tariffs for data.

In addition, the industry has asked the regulator to urge the government for allocation of spectrum in E and V bands only through transparent auction to licensed access service providers.

These issues were flagged by the industry at a recent meeting with the new TRAI Chairman Dr. P. D. Vaghela.

Besides, other issues such as reduction in levies and review of the regulatory stance on over-the-top (OTT) communication services, were also discussed in the meeting.
