Participants were also informed about the benefits of various mobile apps (TRAIMyspeed app, TRAI DND 2.0 app and TRAI Mycall app), tariff portal and network coverage maps developed by TRAI for consumer empowerment and how consumers can take advantage of these apps portal. Participants were also briefed on recommendations made by TRAI viz. net neutrality, in flight connectivity, data security and measures recommended for enhancing ICT accessibility for persons with disabilities. They were also briefed about TRAI’s new regulations on UCC. Participants were advised to actively participate in the TRAI’s consultation process to become a part of the policy making process.
