The Telecom Commission on Wednesday decided to constitute an internal committee under the chairmanship of Member (Services), Department of Telecom (DoT), to give its recommendations on implementation of the Sam Pitroda Committee Report for improving performance of BSNL.

The decision was taken at Telecom Commission meeting held under the chairmanship of Telecom Commission Chairman and Telecom Secretary P. J. Thomas. The Commission has also decided to constitute an inter-ministerial committee to examine the issue of imposition of financial penalty for violation of terms and conditions of telecom license agreements. Meanwhile, the Telecom Ministry has set up an internal panel to look into the concerns of telecom operators over TRAI's spectrum proposals, including levying a one-time fee on 2G radio waves.

“The government has decided to refer the concerns of telecom operators on recent recommendations of TRAI to an Internal Committee of DoT headed by Member (Technology),” an official statement said.

This decision was taken at a meeting between Communications and Information Technology Minister A. Raja and mobile operators and their respective associations.
