Industry response to the Drive Test Results Released by TRAI
  • TRAI yesterday released the Drive Test results for Delhi Service Area. COAI wishes to point out the following issues with regard to these Drive Test Results. For one, these results ought not to be confused with the standard QoS which is mandated by TRAI which is computed for the whole Licenced Service Area (i.e. all cell sites in the LSA). The particular Drive Test and its results do not cover all the cell sites but only a limited amount of the LSA. While the area of Delhi NCR is 46,208 km², these results are limited to a route covering 600 km only. Hence the QoS results from the Drive Test are not strictly comparable with the standard QoS for Dropped Calls regularly published by TRAI for the entire service area.

COAI Appeals to Supreme Court against High Court’s Order on Call Drop Judgement
  • The Indian mobile telephony services industry, represented by COAI today decided to file an SLP (Special Leave Petition) in the Hon’ble Supreme Court challenging the Regulation issued by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on 16 th October, 2015 and against the ruling of the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi in the matter. COAI is requesting the Honorable Supreme Court to consider its prayer that the TRAI Regulation on Call Drops is ultra vires the TRAI Act in that the Act does not give TRAI adjudicatory powers and hence TRAI cannot grant compensation. Further, the TRAI regulation is also ultra vires theTelegraph Act of 1885 under which Mobile companies are licensed wherein 100% coverage of the licensed geography is not required. Hence call drops emanating from these areas should not be subject to compensation. Finally COAI represents that it is impossible to identify all the reasons for call drops and hence implementation of TRAI order is not feasible.

COAI is pleased with TRAI order, but prefer market play on tariffs
  • COAI is pleased that TRAI has kept the differential between local and Roaming call and messaging rates, in its order on roaming tariffs today. In a statement, Mr. Rajan S. Mathews , Director General of COAI, said, “TRAI has recognized there are long distance costs that need to be covered and hence the need for differential tariffs. However, the industry is disappointed that TRAI has not allowed for a longer time for market forces to play out. Given the extreme nature of competition in Indian markets and the low price points that already exist, a light touch regulatory approach that relied more on market forces would have been desirable. It is too early to compute the impact on industry revenues at present.”
