Won’t Shy Away From Duty to Protect Consumers: TRAI on Call Drops
The TRAI said that the matter of call drops is being discussed internally and they are searching for a solution.
- Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said on 18 May that it will not shy away from its duty of protecting consumers.
- Amid a huge public outcry over frequent call drops on various mobile networks, TRAI imposed new regulations mandating that mobile providers compensate consumers Rs 1 for every dropped call, subject to a maximum of Rs 3 a day.
- The Supreme Court annulled the TRAI’s penalty provision earlier in May, calling it ‘arbitrary, unreasonable and non-transparent’.
- The TRAI has maintained that the matter is being discussed internally. The organisation is conducting test drives in several cities of which the results will be published soon.
