The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has asked the department of telecommunications (DoT) to review the licence fees and spectrum usage charges paid by telecom operators and quickly resolve issues related to gross revenue and adjusted gross revenue which are being litigated in various forums.

In its “Inputs for Formulation of National Telecom Policy- 2018”, made public on Friday, Trai said that there is a need to review the rates of levies paid by operators since access spectrum is now being assigned through auction, and telecommunication networks have become the underlying infrastructure for growth of the digital economy.

DoT had written to the regulator in August seeking inputs for the new telecom policy which the government aims to put in place by the end of this fiscal year.

Trai has suggested that government departments should be encouraged to free up underutilized or substitutable spectrum, and added that audit and accounting of the spectrum in use by various governments and private entities was essential.
