On Wednesday, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India📞(TRAI) requested the government to grant more powers to penalise🔨 mobile operators. TRAI has claimed that most of the mobile operators📱 failed to meet the quality benchmark. “As the Supreme Court in its judgement has observed that TRAI does not have the power to impose such (call drop) penalty on telecom operators, we wrote to DoT on Wednesday for amendment in TRAI Act to give us more power,” TRAI secretary Sudhir Gupta said. Recently, the Apex Court⚖ cancelled a TRAI rule which ordered telecom operators to pay a compensation of ₹1 for each call drop. The regulatory body also published the results📊 of a test drive conducted in New Delhi between May 3-6. The test shows that Airtel, Vodafone, Reliance, Aircel and Idea💡 need to improve their call drop rate performance while CDMA operators and 😳MTNL need to improve across all parameters.
