For the unversed, DoT offers three different telecom licensing for internet service providers under Unified License. ISPs can either register for ISP-A, ISP-B, or ISP-C depending on a range of factors. ISP-A offers All India jurisdiction whereas ISP-B offers jurisdiction in a Service Area while ISP-C offers jurisdiction in a Secondary Switching Area.

For ISP licenses, DoT has waived off minimum equity and minimum networth requirements with ISPs simply needed to submit entry fee, PBG, FBG, and application processing fee. ISP-A license authorization commands a combined Rs 2.405 crore fee for DoT to process and grant the authorization.
