The telecommunications sector would continue to contribute significantly to the growth of the Indian economy over the next few years. While the growth in the spread of telecom infrastructure and provision of services is rapid, the contribution of the Indian telecommunications equipment manufacturing industry to this sector is modest. There is all-round recognition that proactive steps must be taken to repair the situation. In this context TRAI had issued a pre-consultation paper in May this year and several issues have been identified. Based thereon, this consultation paper has been prepared raising specific issues for consideration of stakeholders, so as to enable the Authority to take further action and recommend suitable measures for Government's consideration.
