NEW DELHI: Telecom operators, including BSNL and MTNL, have opposed the Trai move to charge a price for allocating new numbers, saying an additional
levy is totally unwarranted.

Sectoral regulator Trai’s main reason behind suggesting a price on allocating new numbers is that the numbers are not being efficiently utilised and it feels a price can make the operators not to dole out numbers to lure more customers. It has also sought opinion on the methods of pricing.
