Telecom companies will now be able to keep your call history safe for two years. The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has increased the period for storing call data and internet usage records of customers from one year to two years due to security reasons. Amendments to the license were issued on 21 December and extended to other forms of telecom permits on 22 December.

“The licensee shall preserve all business records/call detail records/exchange detail records/IP detail records as well as records of communications over the network,” the DoT circular said. Such records shall be kept safe for at least two years for security reasons. Telecom companies can destroy the stored data if there is no instruction from DoT after this.
