|International Telecom Regulations |
|At the end of the ITU’s World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12) at Dubai in December 2012, India did not sign the ITRs. However, it made the statement, as detailed below: |
“India supports the proposed ITRs and the Resolutions 1,2,4 and 5. We support the broad thrust of Resolution plenary 3 regarding an enabling environment for the greater growth of the Internet, particularly its recognition of the multi-stakeholder nature of the Internet and its wider social and economic impact within and across countries around the world. India considers that this resolution should reflect the current and emerging global realities and the dynamics of the Internet. We need to consider the wider ramifications of this Resolution before taking a decision on signing of the ITRs. We would therefore like to undertake necessary consultations at home before announcing our final decision.”
Prior to WCIT-12 and during WCIT-12 conference, the DoT took inputs from various stakeholders such as concerned government departments viz. Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY). National Security Council Secretariat (NSCS) Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Telecommunication Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), several Industry Associations and Civil Society members before deciding not to sign the ITRs.
Post WCIT-12, no new consultations have taken place, and hence there is no change in the government’s stand so far on ITRs.
This information was given by Shri Milind Deora, Minister of State for C&IT in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
