DoT: Single License System for TV and Telecom Service Providers

By Gizbot Bureau

    A panel set up by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has suggested a single unified license system for broadcasting and Telecommunication providers. The new license offered will enable users to avail a host of services such as cable TV, DTH, mobile and landline facilities.

    The unified license policy was proposed in par with Unified Licensing regime that comes under National Telecom Policy 2012. The new license can be used by its holder, to make use of the infrastructure of other companies, and deliver communication services to its users. A new service provider under these terms may not necessarily complete infrastructure to deliver its services.

    DoT: Single License System for TV and Telecom Service Providers


    A split of license one for network services and the other for service delivery was earlier proposed by Department of Telecommunications (DoT). The suggestion came out on the recommendations of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). The recommendation was a national or service area level unified license and a unique license for wireless operations for telecom service providers. This is also in regard with National Telecom Policy 2012 which suggests delinking of licensing and spectrum allocation.

    The unified license at the national level, proposed by the committee will be integration of telecom services. The license will also remain delinked from the spectrum and will supposedly have terms and conditions limited in number. The new licensing scheme is reportedly to help administering services all over India. Under the new licensing scheme, it is said that users need to interact only with one operator regarding all his queries relating to DTH, mobile, landline and cable TV services.
