The Delhi High Court on Monday declined to entertain a petition seeking directions to the Centre and the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to solve the alleged problem of poor signals and call drops in the Capital.
A Bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V.K. Rao dismissed the plea and asked the petitioner, a lawyer, to approach TRAI with his grievance.
“Go to TRAI,” the court said, after the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) opposed the maintainability of the plea.
The petition by Shadab Husain Khan claimed that Delhi residents were facing the problems of poor network and call drops for over a year, and sought that heavy fines be imposed on telecom service providers for allegedly ignoring the issue.
He also sought cancellation of license of telecom companies which are unable to resolve the issue. – The Hindu
