Policy Update: TRAI recommendations on Cloud Services

Blog: NASSCOM Official Blog

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on September 14, 2020 submitted its recommendations on Cloud Services to Department of Telecommunications (DoT). In its recommendations, TRAI has suggested regulating cloud service providers (CSPs) through a light touch regulatory regime and has proposed setting up a non for profit- industry-led body/ bodies in conjunction with DoT/TRAI.

To begin with, TRAI has recommended the first industry body can be setup by DoT and all cloud service providers (CSPs) operating in India will be mandaroty required to become its members.  The industry body so created will then be required to lay down broad principles and procedure regarding its functioning.  Below is the broad  governance structure which TRAI has recommended:

Earlier TRAI had sought feedback from the stakeholders on the possible framework for registration of industry body for cloud service providers including terms and conditions of registration, eligibility, entry fee, period of registration and governance structure. NASSCOM  had also participated in that consultation and gave its detailed submission to TRAI (available here), advocating against putting any additional regulations on CSPs by the Government either directly or indirectly.
