Telecom Department to amend existing UAS licence

The licence and finance wing of the telecom department has suggested amending the existing unified access service (UAS) licence to include a second performance bank guarantee of Rs 10 crore. Under the unified licence (UL) regime, which is different from UAS licence, carriers have to keep two performance bank guarantees and a financial bank guarantee. However, migration from UAS to UL has been amended such that some UAS or licences that offer voice services may continue to exist for around 10 years from now. Therefore, the department wing has suggested the change.
