National Telecom Policy 2011
A pragmatic view of the road ahead
Deloitte as a knowledge partner for the Teletech 2012 prepared a report titled “NTP 2011: A pragmatic view of the road ahead”
As we all are aware, NTP 1999 has been successful to a large extent as a result of liberalization, privatization and many bold decisions of the government. Although NTP 1999 has put India in a leading position in some domains, much needs to be done in the other fields. It is a good time to set new goals and objectives for the coming decade and take right decisions to enable India to progress to the next level of growth and to revolutionize the life of the “Aam Aadmi”. Keeping this in mind perhaps, the Government of India announced Draft NTP 2011.
The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) organized Teletech 2012 conference on telecom sector in association with MIT School of Telecom Management (MITSOT). This year the theme was “NTP 2011: Realizing the vision”. As the exclusive knowledge partner for the conference, Deloitte has prepared the report “NTP 2011: A pragmatic view of the road ahead” which was launched during the event. Hemant Joshi - Telecom Leader Deloitte India addressed the theme of the conference and shared the highlights of the report with the gathering.
The report brings out our thoughts on the overall objectives of NTP 2011 policy and how they could be accomplished. Another angle that the report explores is some of the regulatory and market constraints that the telecom industry in India presently faces.
The panel discussion which was moderated by Hemant Joshi had eminent corporate leaders sharing their point of view on NTP 2011: Vision, Challenges and Opportunities.
The events saw participation from key industry players like Cisco India, Amdocs India, Idea Cellular, Reliance Communications, Tata Teleservices, Persistent Systems, Microsoft India, USO fund, IBM India as speakers and panelists.
Other panelists from Deloitte at the event were Amit Sood – Director ERS and Krishna Durbha – SME TMT Consulting.
