The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has extended the timeline for submission of comments and counter-comments on the consultation paper on “Rating of Buildings or Areas for Digital Connectivity” to June 30, 2022 and July 7, 2022, respectively.

The consultation paper was released on May 4, 2022. The last date of receiving comments and counter-comments on the issues raised in the consultation paper from the stakeholders was fixed as June 15, 2022 and counter comments as June 29, 2022.

The extension in the deadline comes in the backdrop of the requests received from stakeholders/Industry Associations for extension of time for submission of comments on the ground that paper is very important and detailed, and therefore requires extensive deliberations and time to discuss and respond. To this end, the regulator decided to extend the last date for submission of written comments and counter comments.
