DoT Planning To Set Up Two-tier System Of Imposing Penalties

Comments Off on DoT Planning To Set Up Two-tier System Of Imposing Penalties 8

The telecom department (DoT) is planning to set up a two-tier system of imposing penalties and an appeal mechanism in a bid to rationalise the existing structure in which, more often than not, a blanket fine of Rs 50 crore is levied for every licence violation, however small.

An internal DoT committee has proposed to examine each violation separately and then decide on the penalty, while adding that telcos submit performance bank guarantees to safeguard the government’s interest. A final decision to put this two-tiered process in place though is yet to be taken. Original post at ET Telecom
