New Telecommunications Act, 2023 is Now Notified

On December 24, 2023, the Telecommunications Act, 2023 (‘Telecom Act’) was notified in the Official Gazette after receiving the President’s assent. Once it comes into force, the Telecom Act will repeal the Indian Telegraph Act, 1885 and Indian Wireless Telegraphy Act, 1933 and the rules framed thereunder, and amend provisions of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India Act, 1997, thereby consolidating laws relating to development and operation of telegraphs and telecommunication networks, and possession of radio equipment.
