MHA Wants Prior Security Clearance of Telecom Companies for Licence

Comments Off on MHA Wants Prior Security Clearance of Telecom Companies for Licence 5

The Home Ministry has insisted that obtaining prior security clearance should be made mandatory for service providers for granting them telecom licences.

In a communication to the Department of Telecom, the Home Ministry has suggested that clearance from security agencies must be taken before issuing any applicant company telecom licence. This should include verification of antecedents of the directors and promoters of the firm.

As of now, the Department of Telecom first gives licence to a company to provide mobile telephone services on the basis of its application and the security clearance is sought from the Home Ministry only before the launching of the service. Original post at ET Telecom
