Telecommunication regulation in India
The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) in its efforts to revamp regulations in India has published the draft Indian Telecommmunication Bill 2022. The draft Bill proposes technology agnostic regulations, and inlcudes all forms of telecommunications infrastructure part of its scope for regulation. A future ready Bill designed to help the Government of India to regulate the sector, this Bill also includes Over the Top (OTT) applications like Signal, WhatsApp, Facebook, Skype, Zoom under the ambit of regulation. The impact of the draft Telecom Bill on the information technology sector can be severe, with the need for newer regulatory practices that engineers will have to adopt and adhere across the sector.
With this as the background, there is a need to understand current engineering practices in telecom sector and how the new bill will impact everyone as it gets enacted.
The draft Bill is expected to change a variety of engineering practices across industry, including the need to relook at end-to-end encryted systems and information. As an engineer, product manager, and technical director of any company, you will be impacted with different regulatory compliance requirements.
