Delhi HC upholds penalty on call drops; telcos may appeal in SC

The Delhi HC, in late February, upheld the telecom regulator´s rules set last October that mandate telcos to pay Re 1 per call drop to consumers, capped at `3 a day. The judgement by Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath, now means carriers will be required to pay customers, while allowing the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to take action against telcos who don´t comply.

Telecom companies are disappointed with the ruling and are exploring means to challenge the order in the Supreme Court. ´We´re disappointed with the order. We will have to see the details of the order to take a call on filing an appeal (in the Supreme Court),´ Rajan Mathews, DG, COAI, said.
