TRAI tells VSNL to modify leased line port charges

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India on Monday asked Videsh Sanchar Nigam to modify certain terms and conditions under the new charges for leased line ports and private-leased circuits, being offered to ISPs. The decision came following a representation by private ISPs who challenged VSNL's revised terms and conditions under the new charges for leased line ports and private-leased circuits, implemented with effect from January 1, 2001.

In its decision, TRAI has said VSNL should not charge a rolling deposit of 20 per cent under the new terms, as such a charge would impose a heavy burden on private internet service providers.

Stating that other conditions such as minimum period of contract under the revised terms and conditions should be retained at 12 months, TRAI said that the new notice period of three months should also be retained by VSNL.
