Consultation Paper on Regulatory Framework for Over-The-Top (OTT) Communication Services

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) had published a consultation paper for the creation of a regulatory framework for over-the-top (OTT) communication services. TRAI sought comments on suitability and extent of regulatory/ licensing norms that may be applicable to OTT providers.

We submitted comments and counter-comments on issues raised in the paper. Some of these include treating OTT at par with services provided by TSPs, requiring OTT to establish infrastructure for lawful interception and decryption of data, data localisation, registration of all OTT apps in India, revenue for TSPs from OTT services, subscriber verification, substitutability of services  etc.
