8% uniform licence fee introduced across all Telcos !!


The government is set to introduce a uniform licence fee (ULF) of 8% across all communications services to remove any room for arbitrage in the revenue sharing model followed in the telecom sector.

“It will be introduced in a phased manner over the next two years. The notification will be out soon,” a department of telecommunications (DoT) official said on condition of anonymity.

Apart from a notification, DoT will also have to make necessary changes to the universal access service licence, as the telecom licence is known.
