New Delhi: Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and the Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DoT) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) here on Monday.

The MoU aims at establishing a mechanism of technical and institutional cooperation in the field of telecommunications with the purpose of contributing to its development.

The TRAI Centre of Studies and Research (TRAI CSR) was established as an entity within TRAI to conceptualise, coordinate, and enable technological studies in the telecom and broadcasting sectors.

Its vision is to enable technology-driven growth of India by synergising cross-sector initiatives and facilitating knowledge sharing.

The MoU seeks to explore the potential of emerging technologies and ensure cooperation and knowledge sharing, fostering an environment that promotes research on regulatory practices, regulatory gap studies, and the dissemination of vital insights.

Dr P D Vaghela, Chairperson, TRAI said partnership aims to promote cooperation for research on regulatory practices and bridge gaps in our understanding.

“We will conduct technical sessions, seminars and conferences to share knowledge and for capacity building. The potential that lies within these emerging technologies is immense and it is with a sense of responsibility and foresight that we undertake this endeavour,” he said.

By synergising our resources, knowledge and expertise, we aspire to understand the transformative power of these technologies and address the regulatory and policy gaps, he said.

DoT Secretary K Rajaraman appreciated the efforts of TRAI and C-DoT for the signing of this MOU.

He visualised that this collaboration will open new horizons in policy research, regulatory studies, and knowledge dissemination of upcoming technologies in the telecom and broadcasting sectors. It will help India achieve policy-driven innovation.

He suggested that TRAI should examine the possibility of giving grants to academicians for policy research.
