TRAI chairman Sharma’s term is coming to an end on 30 September.
TRAI chief RS Sharma said that the equipment, operating system or digital platform is not able to do any kind of arbitrary control, for this, absoluteness is important.
He said that this is a ‘new front’ which needs attention. He said that the equipment, operating system or digital platform is not able to do any kind of arbitrary control, for this absolutism is important.
Sharma said, ‘Who will look at these areas. I am not saying TRAI should do this or anyone else. I want to say that it is necessary that the devices, operating systems and digital forums are absolutely neutral, which should be reviewed and ensured. ‘
Sharma said that at a time when the internet has become widespread, smartphones and devices have become a medium for accessing … software, operating systems and app stores. He said that if the platform, operating system and equipment are not absolute, then their control will be arbitrary. Telecom service providers cannot behave like this because of the principle of net neutrality.
