New Delhi, March 17 (IANS) Taking a tough stand on call drops, Communications Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Thursday said h,e along with top officials, will go around the national capital to take stock of the telecom services.
Speaking at a BSNL event, the minister said that he will take Telecom Secretary J.S.Deepak and state-run telecom service provider BSNL’s chairman-cum-managing director Anupam Shrivastava with him to monitor the situation of call drops.
During the last test drive, conducted to improve call quality and reduce call drops, by the sector regulator, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), between December 2015-January 2016, most of the telecom service providers (TSPs) did not meet the prescribed benchmark.
