DoT to telcos: Keep TERM cells informed about roaming pacts
The department of telecom (DoT) has directed telecom service providers to keep Telecom Enforcement, Resource and Monitoring (TERM) cells, which monitor telecom companies and their network, informed about their intra-circle roaming arrangements.
"Respective TERM cells of DoT should be informed about intra-circle roaming (ICR) arrangement entered into by the licencee either as an ICR seeker or as an ICR provider," DoT said.
The DoT has 34 TERM cells across 22 telecom circles in the country.
The TERM cells have functions related to vigilance, monitoring and security.
Earlier, telecom companies were required to inform law enforcement agencies about their ICR arrangement.
