The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) yesterday issued an amendment to INSAT MSS-R service, captive VSAT CUG, commercial VSAT CUG, and suis-generis category license agreements regarding the procurement of telecommunication equipment. The amendment includes the addition of a provision for seeking permission from the Designated Authority for the expansion of existing networks.

As per the amended clause, the aforementioned licensees will now have to seek the permission from Designated Authority i.e National Cyber Security Coordinator (NCSC) for the expansion of the existing network using telecommunication equipment that is not yet designated as Trusted Products.

Effective 15th June 2021, the above-mentioned licensees were mandated to seek the permission from Designated Authority for the up-gradation of the existing network using telecommunication equipment that is not yet designated as Trusted Products.

The directives continue to exclude Annual Maintenance Contracts (AMC) or updates to existing equipment already inducted into the network as of the date of effect.

As of yesterday, DoT has amended UL, UL (VNO), UASL, ILD (Other than UL), and NLD (Other than UL) licenses apart from the afore-mentioned licenses to impose the provision of seeking permission from the Designated Authority for expansion of existing networks.
