new Delhi. Telecom regulator had filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking information on tariff charges and special offers of some customers to Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea. In today’s judgment, the Supreme Court has justified this demand of TRAI and asked the telecom companies to provide information. The Supreme Court on Friday ruled in favor of the demand for Telecom Regulator TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India).

Required for transparency
This bench of three judges is headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde. He said in his decision that it is within the jurisdiction of TRAI to take information from telecom companies. The Supreme Court found that the information that TRAI is asking for is necessary for transparency and at first sight it does not look wrong.

In this bench of three judges, apart from Bobde, justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian. In its decision, the bench directed the telecom companies to provide the regulator with the information it is asking for. The bench told TRAI that it should take special care that the information given by the telecom companies should be kept confidential. The information of these plans should not be known to anyone, especially to rival companies. The three-judge bench reserved its verdict in the matter for October 27. After hearing the arguments of both the parties, the Supreme Court will give its verdict.

What is TRAI’s demand?

Telecom regulator TRAI made it mandatory for telecom companies to give information about their special offers. But Vodafone-Idea and Airtel refused to accept TRAI’s decision. After this the matter reached the Telecom Dispute Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT). It was argued by the telecom companies that this offer plan is not a tariff plan, so there is no compulsion to give information about them.
