New telecom bill likely to be in place in 6-10 months: Aswini Vaishnaw

NEW DELHI: The New telecom bill expected to come into force in 6-10 months but the government is in no hurry, Communications Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said on Friday. “The basic consultation process, we will produce the final draft. That draft will then go through the Parliamentary committee processes. It must then be forwarded to (to) the National Assembly. I see 6-10 months but we’re not in a hurry.” Vaishnaw said when asked about the timeline to implement the final bill.
The Ministry of Telecommunications has set a deadline of October 20 in the draft law.
The bill seeks to replace three laws: the Indian Telegraph Act of 1885, the Indian Wireless Telegraph Act of 1933, and the Telegraphic Wires (Unlawful Possession) Act of 1950.
However, with a view to ensuring a smooth transition to the new framework and avoiding any possible disruption, the bill provides for the continuity of actions to be taken under the repealed laws.
It also stipulates that repealed by-law rules will continue until new rules are formed.
