Government is learnt to have approved the name of Kuldeep Singh for the post of member TDSAT which has been lying vacant after retirement of P.K. Rastogi from the telecom tribunal in mid-February.

“Orders have been signed by competent authority for his appointment (Kuldeep Singh),” a senior government official told PTI.

The tribunal, which has a sanctioned strength of three members, including one Chairman and two members, has been without any head since November 2012 after its Chairman Justice S.B. Sinha retired.

The functioning of the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) was halted after lone member Mr. Rastogi hung his boots after serving three years.

Mr. Singh is expected to join TDSAT from April 1. He has more than 38 years experience in telecommunication and information technology sectors.

Mr. Singh has been on the board of MTNL for more than eight years and has also held the charge of Chairman cum Managing Director of the state-run telecom firm for two years.

The government is yet to finalise name of the TDSAT chairman and the other member of tribunal.
