The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has formed an in-house study centre to facilitate proactive research activities into new and evolving technologies that are likely to further disrupt the telecommunication and broadcasting sectors.
The new regulatory division would function as an internal wing, and initially employ in-house human resources as research associates.
The sector regulator has roped in Broadcasting and Cable Services (B&CS) advisor Anil Kumar Bharadwaj as the director general (DG) of the new unit, called Centre of Study and Research or CoSR. In the meantime, TRAI has also elevated Syed Tauseef Abbas as principal advisor-Broadcasting & Cable Services.
TRAI, by virtue of regulatory tasks, has been doing continuous research on multiple areas in the twin sectors, and closely keeping an eye on best practices worldwide. England Times
