The Department of Telecommunications (DoT), through its letter dated 13th August 2018, informed that based on the TRAI recommendations dated 12th May 2014 on 'Provisioning of INMARSAT Satellite Phone Services', M/s BSNL has been granted a service license dated 25th August 2014 for 'Provision and Operation of Satellite based services using gateway installed in India' under "Sui-generis" category by DoT. Presently, the annual spectrum charges for the Gateway and user terminals are levied on formula basis (proportional to the number of terminals and frequency bandwidth used). M/s BSNL has been requesting to change the present methodology of spectrum charging from formula based to Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR) based for provision of this service in line with the commercial VSAT service. Therefore, DoT requested TRAI to provide its recommendations on the method of levy of annual spectrum charges as per the provision under section 11(1) of TRAI Act 1997 as amended.

In view of the above, Consultation Paper on "Methodology for levy of Spectrum Charges for provision of Satellite based Services using Gateway installed in India under 'sui-generis' category" has been released on 10th October 2018 to discuss the issues involved and possible solutions.

माननीय प्रधानमंत्री जी सादर नमन मैं एक शोध छात्र हूँ।भारत मे संचार क्रांति निश्चय ही आपके द्वारा किया हुआ।सबसे महत्वपूर्ण कार्य है।नही तो मैं कहाँ आपसे अपने विचार साझा कर पाता।लेकिन अभी बहुत ही सुधार की आवश्यकता है।जैसे कि सभी संचार कंपनियां डेटा स्पीड और कॉल ड्रॉप की गारंटी तो लेती हैं पर उसे पूरा नही करती हैं केवल ग्रहकों के साथ छलावा करती हैं।और हमारी संस्था ट्राई भी उनका कुछ नहीं कर पा रही हैं।कृपया इसे गंभीरता से लें।क्योंकि आने वाला युग संचार युग होगा।धन्यवाद।
