Department Of Telecommunication : The Department of Telecommunication is the primary policy maker, and executor when it comes to OSPs. OSP Policies didn’t keep up with time and technology evolution due to communication gap between industry and DOT and with the rise of IT enabled businesses entities, Many policies are becoming outdated. They are increasingly becoming draconian – posing as a great obstacle to the growth of tech-driven enterprises.
We at KPO Council of India are working with DOT for addressing industry concerns and representing industry in consultation for TRAI Recommendation in 2019. We are working with DOT on Adding flexibility to the way an OSP conducts business, during these trying times. KPO Council of India hence works towards getting into dialogue with the policy makers and work towards either updating or altering the laws that pose more as a hindrance rather than regulations.
The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology is the foundation regulatory body that oversees the development of the IT sector in India. Over the years, it has formulated several policies that are geared towards creating employment opportunities in India. However, their newest endeavour is the most game changing, and the most thoughtful ,MeitY has devised Incentive Driven BPO Policy. Under this policy, a set monetary incentive shall be given upon the creation of each job. For example, for each new employee hired, the Ministry shall provide INR 50,000 to the employee organization.
