NEW DELHI: The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) appears to be pushing back against the suggestion that a floor be put in place for voice and data rates to boost the sector’s viability, with officials saying this was “not practical” and may even be “impossible” to attempt. While the regulator is not looking at starting any consultation on its own, it will have to consider any such proposal made by the government, they added.

“We have not received any official communication. It will be extremely difficult to do suo motu. Besides, it (setting a floor) is not practical and not possible,” one of the officials told ET.

Ofcourse, anything that affects certain telecom company is not practical. But putting ridiculous NCF on pay cable, dth and IPTV was. No wonder ISP's would rely on traditional cable over IPTVs for bundled television plan.
