TRAI has released a paper seeking industry’s views on the following issues,

  • Licensing issues – Uniform license fee, extending license period to perpetuity, delinking license from spectrum, cap on number of operators per circle, cap on spectrum held by an operator
  • Mergers & Acquisition – need to ease existing norms including spectrum caps, spectrum transfer charge in M&A
  • Spectrum – methodology of spectrum allocation (auctions vs. subscriber linked), one time fee on excess spectrum, spectrum trading/sharing, LT spectrum availability/management issues.

You can send your comments by 12th Nov to TRAI.
