The Department of Telecommunicaitons (DoT) today issued amendments to telecom license agreements for change in time period of storage of call detail record (CDR), exchange detail record (EDR), and IP detail record (IPDR). The Telecom Department exercising its right to modify the conditions of the license as and when it is necessary to do so in public interest or in the interest of the security of the state has amended Unified License (UL), Unified License (Virtual Network Operators), and Unified Access Service (UAS) license agreement among others.

The revised security conditions direct the licensee to archive atleast two years of commercial records, call detail record (CDR), exchange detail record (EDR), and IP detail record (IPDR) for scrutiny by the licensor for security reasons whereas the existing security conditions direct the licensee to archive only one year of such records for scrutiny by the licensor.

The revised security conditions further direct licensees to maintain CDR and IPDR for interent including internet telephony service for a minimum period of two years whereas the existing security conditions direct the licensee to do the same for a minimum period of one year only.

Lastly, the Telecom Department’s revised security conditions mandate licensees to main log-in and log-out details of all subscribers for services provided such as interen access, e-mail, internet telephony, IPTV etc for a minimum period of two years whereas earlier the same was only for a minimum period of one year only.
