Latest Government Notification on OSP

On March 29, 2019, TRAI made a discussion paper available to stakeholders in order to get input from the industry on issues such as OSP registration validity, charges, accessibility, interconnectivity, and security conditions.

According to the paper, an OSP is a business that uses telecom tools or infrastructure provided by licenced telecom operators to provide application services such as telebanking, telemedicine, tele-education, tele-trading, e-commerce, call centre, network operation centre, and other IT-enabled services. People in the industry were asked to comment on whether this concept should be reframed, and whether applications based on the internet and data should be brought under OSP.

TRAI is also considering introducing some other regulatory mechanism so that OSP registration is governed by the government's frameworks.

TRAIi will soon issue a separate discussion paper about whether or not to control chat apps like WhatsApp and Skype.

This consultation was launched by TRAi on March 29th, 2019, and stakeholders were required to submit suggestions by May 20th, as well as counter-comments by June 3rd, 2019.
