He said in an event of ‘Public Affairs Forum of India’ that in the next one-and-a-half to two years, the government will revamp the entire digital regulatory framework. It aims to strike a balance between social objectives, duties and rights of individuals, technology infrastructure, etc.
Vaishnav said, “Industry passes through various stages. Sometimes due to business environment, technology change and various other factors. Hence there is a need for restructuring. How to include this in the bill, so that the industry gets a very clear path?
“These things have to be kept in mind for the reorganisation. These are the things which are my right. That is why such a clear framework has been given in the Bill.
He said that the digital world needs comprehensive laws and the Prime Minister has targeted the Telecom Ministry to make the regulatory framework of India’s digital law at par with global standards.
“It doesn’t mean that we just go around and copy whatever is best in the world,” the minister said. This means that we aim to create a digital legal framework that the world must study. It is a big goal, but it is possible.
According to the draft Telecom Bill-2022, ‘over-the-top’ apps such as WhatsApp, Zoom and Google Duo, which provide calling and messaging services, may require a license to operate in the country.
